Woodworking Network’s Audience Recognition Banquet, scheduled for Wednesday, Sept 27, will salute representatives of Woodworking Network’s 40 Under 40, Market Leaders, the FDMC 300 and the WOOD 100 who attend the EBC. The dinner is preceded by a reception featuring table top displays.

Woodworking Network recently announced the honorees of its 40 Under 40 Class of 2023. The awards program, now in its eighth year, celebrates the next generation of industry professionals who are making an impact on North American wood products manufacturing, design, sales, services, and education.

Woodworking Network's Wood Industry Market Leaders pays tribute to outstanding men and women who have made an impact, not only at their companies but within the various wood products industries including cabinet, residential furniture, contract furniture, architectural woodwork, store fixture, home organization, and components. More than 90 industry professionals have been honored since 2009. 

Now in its 37th year, the FDMC 300 is the woodworking industry's oldest recognized ranking – by sales – of the largest North American manufacturers of wood products.

The WOOD 100 recognizes U.S. and Canadian wood products companies for their adoption of front-of-trend business, marketing, production and other strategies for that have spurred their success.

The Audience Recognition Banquet is one of multiple meal functions included in the attendee registration fee. (See full schedule of events.)
