KBIS 2015 Outstanding Media Award Presented to DJ Carey

An important element of the Kitchen and Bath industry is the relationship it maintains with the media. This includes both traditional print, broadcast and digital media outlets. This relationship is instrumental to convey messages and promote the industry through trend reports, new product introductions, installations and business news.

To honor the demonstrated commitments of so many members of this community, the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) and the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS) are proud to announce the third annual KBIS Outstanding Media Award has been presented to DJ Carey, Editorial Director of Cottages & Gardens Publications, a collection of luxury design magazines in Connecticut, New York, the Hamptons and San Francisco. Each celebrates the diverse design, architecture and lifestyle of its locale.
