Charlotte, NC, will play host to a trio of educational events backed by the full bandwidth of the Woodworking Network’s media.

All three co-located events, each sponsored by a different WWN publication, will take place February 2011 at the Charlotte Convention Center.

Front and center is the 7th annual Closets & Home Organization Conference & Expo, cosponsored by CLOSETS magazine and the Association of Closet and Storage Professionals. The three-day Closets Conference will begin on Wednesday, Feb. 23 and end on Feb. 25. The Closets Expo, which will feature equipment, software, supplies and components for manufacturers and specifiers of closet, garage, cabinet and other home storage products, will be held Feb. 24 and 25. The Closets Conference and Expo is a uniquely focused event annually attended by home organization professionals from throughout North America.

Returning for a second year is the Custom Cabinet Conference, cosponsored by Custom Woodworking Business and the Cabinet Makers Assn. The Custom Cabinet Conference is a dedicated track of the Closets Conference, running Feb. 24-25, and will include an extended “Pricing for Profit” session. Attendees of the full Closets or Cabinet conference can choose to attend the sessions of greatest interest to them.

The all-new Wood Tech Summit, sponsored by Wood & Wood Products, joins this prestigious lineup. The Wood Tech Summit, Feb. 24-25, will offer a platform for detailed presentations of large-scale integrated woodworking technology applications, with formats including educational sessions and roundtable discussions featuring wood industry technology leaders before a live audience. It will also feature demonstrations and discussions of leading-edge technologies.

Education & Networking
Unique education and networking opportunities are the common denominators of this triple play event. For example, during one space in time, a closets manufacturer can hone his core skills at the Closets Conference, improve his pricing model at the Custom Cabinet Conference and learn cutting-edge productivity tips at the Wood Tech Summit.

If that’s not enough, there will also be hundreds of products on display at the Closets Expo, featuring the Extreme Garage Pavilion and new TechCentre. Capping it all off is a plant tour of a state-of-the-art production plant.
