The Association of Woodworking & Furnishings Suppliers opened attendee registration in January, a signal that its biennial trade show will take place July 20-23 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“Entering the new year, optimism is high that we are moving closer to a normal we once knew. With a robust housing market and increased focus on renovation and remodeling projects, our industry is set up for continued growth,” Brian Joyce, chair of the AWFS Fair’s committee, said in a statement.
“Having already sold 86 percent of the exhibit floor space for July’s show, the AWFS Fair will be held in the newly completed West Hall. The spacious, state-of-the-art exhibit space will offer attendees a great opportunity to reconnect with industry associates, see new innovative products and receive live demonstrations of the latest wood manufacturing equipment. I anticipate a well-attended event and look forward to seeing everyone at the show.”
The fair will feature North America’s largest gathering of woodworking equipment and technology, the Fresh Wood student competition, and educational opportunities through the College of Woodworking Knowledge presentations.
This year’s fair will have a special feature, the Safety Pavilion, to showcase exhibitors who specialize in safety solutions for the industry.
