"How to run a business better" is the recurring theme for a three-track conference as the Cabinets & Closets Conference comes to Chicagoland Tuesday, April 11, 2017, returning to the Renaissance Convention Center Hotel in Schaumburg, Illinois.
 
Conference sessions begin with a keynote address, "Small Business Numbers that Matter," at 8:00 a.m. Afterward the conference will split into three individually focused tracks:
  1. Closets: Growing a Profitable Business, produced in partnership with the Association for Closets & Storage Professionals;
  2. Cabinets: Power Up Your Business, developed with the Cabinet Makers Association; and
  3. Lean Management, a five-session focus on reducing waste and improving profit margins that applies to any business. The Lean Management track will be delivered by Jim Lewis and Brad Cairns of the Center for Lean Learning.

The Renaissance Convention Center Hotel won accolades for its comfortable setting and convenient location when Cabinets & Closets 2015 was staged there. Just 20 minutes from O'Hare Airport, is it 45 minutes from the heart of downtown Chicago. It is also surrounded by great dining and entertainment.
 
The convention center is also the location for Cabinets & Closets Expo 2017, which saw more than 100 exhibitors of panel, components, hardware, software applications and running machinery. Growing dramatically in each of the past three years, Cabinets & Closets Expo is the only tradeshow dedicated to closet, home storage, and home organization professionals. Strong attendance is expected at Cabinets & Closets 2017 owing to the robust home improvement and new construction market. Schaumburg is also centrally located in the large population of single family homes in the metropolitcan corridor, running from Chicago to Milwaukee.
