NIAGRA FALLS, ON -- The Canadian Kitchen Cabinet Association will celebrate its 50th anniversary at its national forum May 10-12 at the Hilton Niagra Falls. The meeting features numerous educational sessions and plant tours to Timberwood Kitchens, Inc. in Port Colborne; Oakridge Woodworking in Fenwick; and Gretzky Winery and Distillery in Niagra-on-the-Lake.
Among the featured presenters are Will Sampson, Editor of FDMC Magazine and Gerald Van Woudenberg, of  Van Arbour Design in Vancouver.  The two will address the topic, Solving the Pricing Puzzle. Pricing your work correctly is one of the most important and misunderstood challenges of any business today. Have you lost work to low bidders that you know will lose money on the job? Are you astounded by the price differences you see and can't fathom how the pricing can be so drastically different? Will Sampson has spoken and published on this topic across Canada and the US for many years. Whether you are in Canada or the US, Will provides valued insights on the four pricing essentials, how to deal with competitive pressures and what FDMC Magazine's Pricing Survey reveals.
Will Sampson, FDMC Editor, will discuss the magazine's pricing survey at the CKCA National Forum.
Gerald Van Woudenberg is a CKCA manufacturing member who is the owner of Van Arbour Design in Vancouver, BC. Gerald has been a kitchen manufacturer and millwork for 34 years and has seen it all. He has developed a system of pricing that works for his company, but the drastic differences in pricing continue to plague his market. Gerald and Will bring their perspectives, their ideas, and offer solutions that will help you address the pricing challenge while positioning your company to prosper.
