About the Show

Conference: April 17, 2024  |  Expo: April 18-19, 2024

Wood Pro Expo Illinois is co-located with Closets Conference & Expo  


Wood Pro Expo Illinois is coming to the Renaissance Hotel & Convention Center in Schaumburg, IL

Centrally located in the robust midwestern woodworking community.  The 2023 event in Palm Beach attracted more than 1,200 attendees from 41 states and 5 countries.

The two-day expo, featuring suppliers and distributors of woodworking machinery and supplies, is primed for action with an exhibit floor packed with events for attendees to see, learn, and find new ideas and products.

Robust show floor activities include:

•  Live machinery demos,
•  Woodworking Network Live area featuring interviews, speakers, and podcasts,  
•  Installation Clinics 2.0 and 3.0 with demonstrations,
•  Advanced design clinics including sponsored booth tours by the ACSP.

Wood Pro Expo has a strong educational component, including free opening keynote presentations on Thursday and Friday. On Wednesday, April 17, Woodworking Network and the CMA will co-sponsor a full day conference and plant tours. The conference program will deliver important information to help woodworkers drive business and improve processes. Join the CMA on Thursday for a ticketed breakfast featuring the popular “What’s Your Problem” roundtables. Plus, join the ACSP to welcome newcomers to a fun reception following the plant tours on Wednesday. The conference and expo facilitate networking with fellow attendees and suppliers.

PLAN to attend. Everything about Schaumburg ensures a great experience during the event and after hours.
