Closets Expo to rock Austin in 2012AUSTIN, TX -- The 8th annual Closets & Home Organization Conference & Expo will hit the stage February 15-17 in Austin, the "Live Music Capital of the World."

The capital city of Texas and home of Texas University has earned its reputation for great music not only for the dozens of clubs serving up a lively mix of band performances each night, but for the annual South by Southwest Music and Film Interactive and long-running TV series "Austin City Limits."

Fresh off the heels of a highly successful event in Charlotte, NC, the 2012 Closets Conference & Expo will again feature the Custom Cabinet Conference  and an all-new-improved Wood Tech Summit. The fast-paced event features two days of product displays and three days of education and networking.

Jeff Klein, president of the Association of Closet and Storage Professionals, cosponsor of the Closets Conference along with CLOSETS magazine, said, “The board of ACSP is excited about rallying the closet troops in Austin next February. We expect to recognize the first graduating class of our newly launched Designer Certification program which was introduced in Charlotte last February and introduce our ACSP Designer Training Program. If you are in the Closet & Storage Professional industry, you need to heed the advice of that great philosopher ‘The Fonz,” -- â€Be there or be square.”

"Bringing the Closets Expo and Conference to Austin next year is in keeping with our philosophy to move this very unique event around the country," said Rich Christianson, associate publisher of CLOSETS. "Texas has a special place in our hearts because the very first, and highly successful Closets Conference was held in Dallas in 2005. We feel that Austin is an ideal setting for our event, not only because of its moderate February temperatures, but because there are many great music venues, restaurants and historical attractions within walking distance of the convention center and headquarter hotels."

Additional details about the 8th annual Closets Conference & Expo will be coming soon.
