kitchen and bathroom must be functional & beautiful spaces. We are also delighted to announce that the KBRI awards will be taking place in Dublin in November at the Convention Centre and we can announce that international designer Johnny Grey will be our guest speaker. He pioneered the ‘Unfitted Kitchen’, resulting in a new freedom and creativity of design, designing kitchens, bedrooms, and bathrooms without the built-in rigidity of continuous counters and wall based units. In 2008, Johnny won the Simon Taylor Award for lifetime achievement in the kitchen industry.

Awards 2013

This year not only sees the incorporation of bathrooms, which will please many retailers in that sector who have been keen advocates that the awards should incorporate bathrooms as well, but also a new venue.

THE CONVENTION CENTRE DUBLIN ( The CCD) – a purpose built international conference and event venue – and a design statement in its own right, is a fitting location for these design led awards that Johnny Grey who's ideas have influenced the world of design readily agreed to be guest speaker at these is an endorsement of the event. Not only have the awards expanded to incorporate the best in bathroom design but there is a new

kitchen category where design & craftsmanship merge in The Bespoke Kitchen Award. Some have been merged to make this a truly 32 county event. There are a number of other departures, for the first time we will be having a sponsor's exhibition, to showcase the very best in design & innovation. The Awards will be held on Friday 8th November. Look forward to seeing you there! For further information on award categories & how to enter contact us at www.bayviewpublishing.net enquiries@bayviewpublishing.net Tel ROI 048 91478703
