KBIS Welcomes Darren Keefe
KBIS 2022 welcomes one of the newest faces of HGTV’s relaunch of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” and “Fix My Fail” programs, Darren Keefe as host of the perennially popular DesignBites.
Born in Northern Ireland to a long line of Irish craftsmen and farmers, Keefe developed his love for woodworking after building a Pinewood Derby Racer with his dad. Carpentry and craftsmanship have been his “means of survival” while building his acting career in L.A. Keefe’s company, Dumcree Designs, was born after working with a local contractor specializing in kitchen and bath remodels. Now Keefe pursues his passion for design and custom fabrication creating one-of-a-kind, handcrafted furniture pieces for a range of high-profile clients.
Keefe will host this show favorite — often referred to as “speed dating for brands” — on February 8, 2022, on the KBIS NeXT Stage in the South Hall of the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC), Orlando, Fla. Here, 10 exhibitors, large and small, get the opportunity to share their message in a refreshing, entertaining way. The brands each have three minutes to present an innovative product, and each presentation is followed by a two-minute Q&A. See Darren’s host announcement here.
To participate in DesignBites, brands must be a KBIS exhibitor and apply for consideration. Brands will be chosen based on product innovation and uniqueness, quality of application, suitability for the three-minute format, and design interest. Exhibiting brands can apply now through November 17, 2021, by completing the DesignBites Application here.
DesignBites will be held on Tuesday, February 8, 2022, at noon on the KBIS NeXT Stage, South Hall, OCCC.
