MANHEIM, Pa. – Exhibitors of functional and decorative hardware will be highlighted at Wood Pro Expo Lancaster, Oct. 12-13 at Spooky Nook Sports/Warehouse at the Nook.

“At past shows we’ve put a lot of emphasis on promoting woodworking equipment through Wood Pro Expo’s Running Machine Program and Classic Machine Pavilion,” said Lewis Goldman, managing partner of the event. “While we have received a lot of positive feedback from attendees about our featured machinery programs, many have also indicated that they would like to see a more expansive selection of decorative and functional hardware that they can use in their cabinets, furniture, closets and other home and commercial storage projects. They want to see more displays of hinges, slides, pull-outs and other functional hardware as well as handles, knobs, and other decorative products.”

Goldman said exhibitors of functional and decorative hardware will receive pre-show and at-show promotion.

“Our partner Woodworking Network will highlight those exhibitors through articles posted on the Wood Pro Expo Lancaster website and featured in Woodworking Network’s Daily Brief and eNewsletters specifically promoting the show,” Goldman said. “We also plan to shine a spotlight on hardware exhibitors on the Wood Pro Expo Lancaster floorplan both online and in the at-show exhibitor directory.”

In addition to the heightened featuring of functional and decorative hardware, Goldman said he is working on developing educational programming that will allow accredited architects and designs to achieve Continuing Education Units (CEUs) through the American Institute of Architects as part of Wood Pro Expo Lancaster’s classroom program. He added that more specific information about these sessions will be announced soon.

Wood Pro Expo Lancaster is the largest industrial woodworking exhibition and conference serving professional woodworkers in the Northeast United States. The annual tradeshow features a full complement of woodworking machinery and supplies exhibited by leading manufacturers and distributors. The latest in design and manufacturing software, cutting tools, finishing equipment and materials, hardware, lumber, and much more will be presented.
