Closets Expo returns to Florida in 2023 with new materials pavilion
June 22, 2022 | 8:38 am CDT

The Closets Expo returns to south Florida in 2023, home to one of the most vibrant closet sectors in the nation.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- The 2023 Closets Conference & Expo, reinforced with a new pavilion dedicated to raw materials and decorative surface materials, will be held at the Palm Beach County Convention Center, April 13-14,

The only national event open to all closet and storage professionals will once again be co-located with Wood Pro Expo, a regional marketplace for woodworking professionals.

“The addition of a pavilion specifically for materials used to fabricate beautiful closets, cabinets, and other residential and commercial products is long overdue,” said Laurel Didier, publisher of the Closets division of Woodworking Network. “At this year's show held in San Diego, we had several attendees state verbally or in the survey they filled out that they came to the show hoping to meet with suppliers of wood veneer, lumber, particleboard, and decorative overlays. While we had a few exhibitors showing these kinds of products, we want to expand their presence by hosting the new materials pavilion at next year's event."

The 2023 event will kick off on April 12 with a full-day, two-track educational conference, one dedicated to the closets industry and the other to custom woodworking. The conference will also include tours of area manufacturing facilities.

Additional information will be available soon at woodproexpoflorida.com and closetscon.com.
