For manufacturers, specifiers and suppliers to the allied cabinet and closet industries, the next generation event  takes place February 27-March 1, 2013, at the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center in Edison.

The Cabinets & Closets Conference & Expo will feature a pair of conferences – one dedicated to custom cabinet professionals and the other to storage professionals involved in the design, manufacture and installation of closets, garages and other home organization systems. The conference sets the stage for the expanded Cabinets & Closets Expo, a two-day exhibition of supplies, software, machinery and services.

 Given the intense rebuilding efforts going on in the Northeast following Superstorm Sandy, the opportunity to find new sources and styles of equipment and supplies for home storage and cabinetry will be critical to businesses involved in the rebuilding and restoring of home interiors.

 The Cabinets & Closets Conference kicks off on Wednesday, Feb. 27 at the Sheraton Edison Hotel Raritan Center, the headquarters hotel for the new event.

Robert Reiss, host of the CEO Show with Robert Reiss, will deliver the opening keynote speech as part of a general session open to delegates of both the Cabinets and Closets Conferences. The general session will also feature highlights of a new Vance Research project focused on custom cabinet and closet business and design trends.

The Cabinets Conference, co-sponsored by the Cabinet Makers Association (CMA) and Custom Woodworking Business, will include a full slate of presentations geared to helping custom cabinetmakers improve efficiencies and generate more sales. Each session will be presented by a CMA member; attendees will be eligible to earn CEUs toward the CMA’s Professional Certification Program.
