Today I want to focus on the KBIS Blog Tour! This will happen in Orlando and is part of the 2018 Kitchen & Bath Show. I was thinking about firing up the Tastefully Inspired jet to head over and catch Liza Jones of Liza Jane Interiors speak on a panel on “Designing for AirBnB” but I remembered one crucial thing….we don’t have a jet. The best laid plans of mice and men…right? For those going to this event below are the details for Liza’s speaking engagement:
“Kitchen and Bath Design for Airbnbs”
10:45 AM – 11:45 AM
Session 5: Designing for Airbnb KBISNeXT Stage: South Hall
Well as I sit here and paint my face for “Day of the Dead” I decided to drop some details on this epic event! – Mark
