LAS VEGAS - More than 60 woodworking products have been entered in the Visionary Awards competition. Winners will be determined by a panel of wood manufacturing professionals, and announced at the Association of Woodworking & Furnishings Suppliers AWFS Fair 2013 wood industry show. The show runs July 24-27 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

A total 66 products were entered by 49 companies. Rules require the product to have been introduced since the last AWFS trade show in 2011, and to be on exhibit at the 2013 wood industry show.

AWFS Fair executive VP Angelo Gangone expects that the 66 entries will be among nearly 100 new products to be highlighted in an AWFS Fair New Product Showcase, location in the Grand Lobby display area adjacent to the exhibition area entrances.

"We're projecting that there will be 4 or 5 Visionary Award winners, based on final categories," says Gangone.  The Visionary Awards, an updated recognition program that is a successor to the former Sequoia Awards, will be officially unveiled at the 2013 AWFS Fair. A newly designed trophy for winners will also be unveiled at the show.

Entrants will be judged in five categories - Environmental, Ergonomics, Safety, Innovative Technology and Productivity - on creativity, quality and ingenuity and honored at the Awards Presentation on Friday, July 26 in the AWFS Theatre.

Entrants will also be featured in AWFS TODAY! show floor events publication; entrants will also be profiled in a pre-show Visionary Awards section in the AWFS 2013 Guide to New Products digital.
