2024 Closets & Wood Pro Expo booth space sold out

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. - The 2024 Closets Expo, co-located with Wood Pro Expo Illinois, has officially sold out of exhibitor space.

The Closets & Wood Pro Expo will feature numerous activities, including free daily keynotes, demonstrations of woodworking technology, a closet lighting installation clinic, a molding & scribe installation clinic, DESIGN Talks, and the ACSP Designer Exchange.

“Attendance is pacing more than 30 percent higher than last year’s event at this time," said Laurel Didier, event sales manager.
