Next month, AWFS will take place on July 19-22, 2017, in Las Vegas. The event will feature some new opportunities to help you build your business and find new suppliers. This year for the first time, Woodworking Network will present a full-day symposium for closet and garage professionals. The symposium has an amazing lineup of qualified speakers to inspire, teach and wow it’s audience. We are also producing a separate Finishing symposium to learn more about finishing techniques, materials and equipment and also a full day Leadership Conference composed of the FDMC 300, Market Leaders, Wood 100 and 40 under 40 alumni. The symposia and conference will be presented on the day before the expo opens, Tuesday, July 18, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Also, at AWFS for the first time Closets & Organized Storage will co-sponsor a pavilion on the expo floor specifically for equipment and materials used in your businesses. AWFS is a big show so to have a special section just for you will help you prioritize your time at the show.
