Arlington to host largest annual gathering of closet and storage professionals next month.
ARLINGTON -- The 15th annual Cabinets & Closets Conference and Expo, the only national tradeshow dedicated to closet and home storage professionals, comes to the Arlington Convention Center, March 11-13.
The unique three-day event showcases hundreds of products and educates closet and cabinet professionals about industry-best practices so that they can work smarter not harder to grow their businesses.
“We’re super-excited to return to Arlington where the show began in 2005,” said Laurel Didier, publisher of Closets & Organized Storage magazine, sponsor of the event. “The closet and home storage industry has evolved tremendously over the last 15 years. Consumers enjoy better options in terms of functionality, design and accessories for everything from bedroom closets to laundry/mudrooms, home offices and garages.”

The conference, comprised of separate tracks for closet and cabinet professionals, features expert speakers on design, sales and installation. The conference concludes with tours of First Source Cabinet Doors’ factory in Dallas and Techline Furniture, Cabinetry and Closets’ showroom in Fort Worth.
