Hear from industry experts at AWFS

The AWFS Fair Live stage, located at booth No. 4780, will feature complimentary presentations from industry professionals throughout the show.

Highlights include Wood Education Talks from design guru Jane Dagmi, chair maker Brian Boggs, and closet industry expert Eric Marshal on Wednesday, July 26, starting at 1 p.m. (PDT).

Dagmi will share exciting news from High Point, N.C., including the new High Point x Design initiative, and other ways the city is reinventing itself. Boggs will dissect common terminology we use around custom woodworking, like “handmade”, “self-taught”, and “original design”, while Marshal will explore why the closet industry is thriving right now and how to join the action.

Following an economic update from Chris Kuehl on Thursday, July 27 at 12 p.m., join a panel of industry pros in a discussion about the current state of our supply chain throughout the aspects of domestic machinery, supplies, and materials. Moderated by Jamison Scott from Air Handling Systems, the panel will feature Bob Brown (Royal Plywood), Jonathan Thompson (E.B. Bradley), and Paul Wilmes (Mereen-Johnson).
