ANAHEIM - The Association of Woodworking & Furnishings Suppliers (AWFS) and Closets & Organized Storage Magazine are introducing and co-sponsoring The Great Closets Challenge: A Fabricator and an Installer/Assembler Challenge that has attendees fighting to beat the clock to assemble and install a custom-designed storage space on the show floor, which will take place in the Closets Pavilion.

“AWFS Fair is thrilled to enhance the Closets and Organized Storage Pavilion with such a unique and engaging experience. The Great Closet Challenge will bring designers, fabricators, and installers to the floor in a new way and will bring additional excitement to the Fair, throughout the duration of the show,” according to Kim Roehricht, trade show director of AWFS Fair.

“We are excited to partner with AWFS for the introduction of The Great Closet Challenge,” said Michaelle Bradford, editor, Closets & Organized Storage magazine. “This competition is the perfect vehicle to showcase the level of experience, creativity, and skill within the closets and home storage and organization industry.

"Both exhibitors and attendees will be able to participate in this unique event. From fabrication to installation, industry professionals and AWFS Fair attendees will have the opportunity to compete against their peers in a one-of-a-kind immersive contest. Not only will the competition be fun and exciting, but attendees will have the opportunity to win valuable prizes as well.”

The Pavilion is complemented by the full-day Woodworking Network Closet Symposium taking place on Monday, July 19.
