kbb Birmingham to collaborate with The Used Kitchen Company to create more sustainable Show
kbb Birmingham and The Used Kitchen Company (TUKC) have announced a partnership to help exhibitors sell their displays ahead of the show and encourage a more sustainable event.
Exhibitors at kbb Birmingham selling their kitchens with TUKC, will be making a valuable contribution towards recycling within the kitchen industry.
Exhibitors will no longer need to arrange transportation and storage of their displays after the show as TUKC, with its extensive experience of working closely with both showroom and exhibitions in this capacity, will arrange it all.
The Used Kitchen Company is the premier platform for selling used and ex-display kitchens, encouraging homeowners and showrooms to recycle their kitchens. Looeeze Grossman, founder and CEO, highlights the benefits of this collaboration:
"We are so excited to be joining forces with kbb Birmingham 2020 in what will be an exciting and truly unique experience. We aim to help make exhibition-recycling the norm rather than the exception and show it can be done in a way that is profitable to both manufacturers and consumers.
"I look forward to working closely with kitchen manufacturers and showrooms to facilitate the recycling of their displays, to help encourage a more sustainable culture within the kitchen industry. "
Mark Gordon, Director, kbb, comments:
"We are committed to achieving a sustainable show and having a positive environmental and social impact on the KBB sector, so this is a really encouraging step forward. We very much look forward to working with The Used Kitchen Company to maximise this exciting partnership for our exhibitors."
