ACSP update: Recapping Closets Expo

As we wrap up an exhilarating Closets Conference & Expo 2024, held at the Schaumburg Convention Center this past April, I am filled with immense gratitude and pride. Co-located with Wood Pro Expo, this year’s event drew an unprecedented 1,100 attendees, and was a vibrant testament to the passion and innovation that define our industry. Our heartfelt thanks go to Woodworking Network, CCI Media, and Closets & Organized Storage magazine for orchestrating such a dynamic platform for growth and exchange.

From Daniel Eisenbarth's insightful keynote on the psychology of successful business owners to the comprehensive discussions on the latest trends in design and technology, each session was tailored to empower and enlighten. Notable highlights included the thought-provoking panels on AI in design, the installation clinics, the inspiring DESIGN Talks that showcased sustainable practices in modern design, and the incredibly insightful Building Your Brand Panel keynote discussion.

The networking opportunities were equally impactful, offering each of us the chance to forge new partnerships and strengthen existing ones. The plant tours sponsored by Hafele America and the spirited discussions during the ACSP Designer Exchange were particularly notable for sparking collaboration and creativity among our peers.

As we look forward to the 2025 Closets Conference & Expo in West Palm Beach, Florida, let us carry forward the momentum from this event. Let us continue to share, learn, and innovate together, upholding our mission to enhance the closets and home organization industry. Remember, as Helen Keller famously said, “Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much.”

Thank you to each of you—our members, attendees, and sponsors—for your dedication and enthusiasm. Your active participation truly shapes our success. Let’s keep pushing the boundaries of what we can achieve together.
