Cabinets and closets make for a great combination. As we’ve learned from our market research and have witnessed first-hand at recent Closets Conferences & Expos, more cabinet professionals are getting into closets and more closet professionals are getting into cabinets.
This cabinet-closet crossover seems like a natural evolution and one that will be highlighted in the new Cabinets & Closets Conference & Expo (CCCE) set to debut Feb. 27-March 1, 2013 at the New Jersey Convention & Exposition Center in Edison, NJ.
The CCCE: Total Storage Solutions will build on the inherent strengths, similarities and synergies of the dynamic closet and custom cabinet markets, while also paying homage to the distinctive differences that make each of these product categories unique.
The initial reaction to our announcement about this new event has been overwhelmingly positive from past and potential new exhibitors as well as attendees. Most readily see the connection between the closet and cabinet markets and the opportunity for the CCCE to take the past Closet Conference & Expo event to a wider audience and higher level.
The CCCE is a joint effort of CLOSETS and Custom Woodworking Business (CWB) magazines, both are B2B publications of Vance Publishing Corporation’s Woodworking Network.

The state-of-the-art New Jersey Convention & Exposition Center is located within driving distance of New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore and other major metropolitan hubs. In addition, the Northeast boasts the highest concentration of readers of CLOSETS, CWB and Wood & Wood Products magazines.
