A multi-faceted gem to showcase Elkay's most brilliant products
Elkay's Diamond Design Program was created to allow wholesalers with a dedicated showroom an opportunity to recapture funds used to display Elkay's inventive products. The community of Designers to wholesalers, to architects, and builders to retailers can expect to see, hear and read about Elkay's imaginative and functional products in more ways and places than ever before! All benefit from the facets of the Diamond Design Program.
All Elkay wholesalers or K&B showrooms, who have a dedicated display area, as well as a dedicated attendant, may participate. The more products a showroom has on display, the more benefits they are eligible for.
We offer two different allowances - Display Product and Construction Allowance. Each of these is available to Showrooms who display product that meet the Marquis and Diamond level showroom requirements.
Elkay will help drive traffic to your showroom by listing your showroom or display location on our web site at elkay.com. The new Elkay websites have been designed to offer complete content that can be accessed easily, along with a robust search feature. The "Where to Buy" page that directs consumers to the nearest location where they can see Elkay brand products.
New documentation with instructions to support the program's processes will be forwarded to all rep offices. They include: submitting qualification forms to register new showrooms, ordering products for display, and submitting Construction Allowance claims on Elkaycoop.com.
