AWFS 2021 Recap
Mockett at AWFS 2021
We were so excited to exhibit at the Association of Woodworking & Furnishings Suppliers Fair (a.k.a. AWFS Fair) last week in Las Vegas! This was our first in-person event since January 2020, and it did not disappoint. It felt wonderful to be back with our customers and have the opportunity to meet some new friends throughout the four days of the show.
If you’re not familiar with AWFS, they are a non-profit, member-owned organization now in their 110th year. Their main objective is to help the woodworking industry by funding legislative and educational initiatives. The Fair is an event they put on every two years and is the largest woodworking event in North America.
An added bonus of being back to exhibit in the Las Vegas Convention Center was being able to show our products in their brand-new West Hall. The 1.4 million square foot hall opened to the public on June 8th of this year, so we were among some of the first to occupy the massive space.
We really didn’t know what to expect coming into this first pandemic-era event, but we were pleasantly surprised to see the hall almost as full as usual. It seems our industry is ready to bounce back and we’re so excited to see it!
If you were in attendance, you may have seen us at Booth 3869 showcasing all of the latest in Fine Architectural Hardware. Being that this was our first show in over a year and a half, we had plenty of new stuff to show off! Some of our standout hits this year were Shadow Pop-Up Power, our new Wireless Chargers, and Work Surface Supports.
AWFS did it again. We are so happy to be back showcasing our products in person, and we can’t wait to see you all again in 2023.
