Product innovation will take center stage at upcoming AWFS


The AWFS Fair is accepting entries from exhibitors for its Visionary New Product Awards and Showcase, which will be featured at the July 20-23 industry trade show in Las Vegas. The entry deadline is June 1.

“This year, the Fair will see an expanded emphasis on new products,” explains Brian Joyce, AWFS trade show chair. “Since all trade shows were forced to cancel or postpone their events toward the end of the first quarter of 2020, people really want to see these new products in addition to what else they may have missed during this timeframe, all the while being able to reconnect face-to-face once again.”

There are nine categories, including Industry 4.0; Machinery over $50,000; Machinery under $50,000; Power Tools; Hardware; Components; Tooling; Software; and Raw Materials.

All entries must be submitted online at
