The Wood Machinery Manufacturers of America (WMMA), and the Woodworking Machinery Industry Association (WMIA), have announced dates for the next Woodworking Industry Conference (WIC). The event will be held from April 23-26, 2013. The location will be at the Marriott Phoenix Tempe at the Buttes, 2000 Westcourt Way, Tempe, Arizona.
The meeting, whose slogan is "One Industry…One Conference…Endless Opportunities," is the least expensive way to make quality contacts with suppliers and peers during one trip (and is characterized by participants as being worth five times the cost). It will include education and networking sessions of interest to industry members at all levels.
John Satagaj will return with his forum on public policy. A Contact Table program allows WIC participants to have face –to-face sales meetings as they create and build upon business relationships. This program will allow for the most cost-effective sale calls one can make. Also, look for the CEO Forum to provide perspective from industry leaders.
WIC, which has been an industry standard for more than three decades, draws participants from all segments of the wood industry.
Registration materials, a complete schedule and hotel information will be made available shortly. Sponsorship information for WIC is available from John Henderson at 702-818-5106.
