AWFS will unveil Visionary Award in Vegas

The Association of Woodworking & Furnishings Suppliers will debut its new Visionary Award at a July 26 ceremony during the AWFS fair in Las Vegas.

The ceremony, scheduled for 9:30 a.m. PST at the AWFS Theatre on the show floor, will be unveiled by Archie Thompson from Spectrum Adhesives, the awards designer and current vice president of the AWFS board of directors.

“I wanted the award to represent great visionaries throughout history, artists and inventors who saw beyond what was and offered the world ideas that changed it dramatically for the better,” Thompson said in a statement. “The people and companies who have entered these ideas are also visionaries, in their own right, and the products they've conceptualized and produced can have a tremendous impact on our industry. That is what the essence of this award is all about."
