Viking Range to Exhibit at KBIS 2014

GREENWOOD, Miss. (November 1, 2013) – Viking Range, LLC, the originator of "Professional Performance for the Home," has announced that it will be an exhibitor at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) 2014 during Design & Construction Week™, to be held February 4-6 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Viking will be located in Booth N1215.

"Viking will be showcasing dozens of new products and advanced technologies at KBIS. Those attending will get a firsthand look at these exciting innovations," said Tim Tyler, director of marketing at Viking. "We are eager to show the industry all of the new projects that we have been working on at Viking over the past year and to share our vision for the future of the Viking brand."

Viking is looking forward to KBIS as an opportunity to reinforce the strength of the Viking brand to its core influencers – designers, builders, architects and remodelers. Brent Bailey, director of brand management at Viking, stated, "Not only will Viking domestic product lines be on display, but we will also be showcasing our extensive and growing line-up of Viking products available globally. We look forward to meeting many international attendees at the show and introducing them to the Viking brand for use with their clients."

With so many new products launching between August 2013 and January 2014, Viking management is pleased with the collaboration of KBIS with the International Builders’ Show (IBS) to create Design & Construction Week™. "The design and builder communities are critically important to Viking and we are excited to be a part of this mega-event to showcase so many innovative new Viking products," said Tyler.

Viking Range was acquired by The Middleby Corporation, a global leader in the commercial kitchen industry, on December 31, 2012. As of October 15, 2013, the KBIS 2014 show floor was officially sold out and Design and Construction Week™ is expected to draw over 60,000 residential design and construction professionals. "We anticipate huge benefits to exhibitors in both shows – as well as to attendees – because there will be so much more to see in one location," added Tyler.
