The Association of Woodworking & Furnishings Suppliers® (AWFS), founded in 1911, is a nonprofit organization that wholly owns and produces the biennial AWFS®Fair. The largest trade association serving the entire home and commercial furnishings industry, AWFS has more than 400 members, including manufacturers and distributors of machinery, hardware, software, tooling, lumber, components, wood products and supplies for the woodworking industry including cabinet, furniture, millwork and custom woodworking products.
Known as the industry’s innovation marketplace, AWFS®Fair is the “go to” event for thousands of woodworking manufacturing professionals who need cutting-edge solutions to make their operations more competitive and more profitable. Addressing that quest for innovation, AWFS®Fair 2019 once again brings the entire global industry together for an in-depth review of the new developments and advances that are driving the market. Participants benefit from high-quality educational programming in the industry (the College of Woodworking Knowledge®), a huge, expanded show floor that features top suppliers and resources, and a variety of opportunities to network, learn and acquire the relevant information and strategies to help them grow along with their industry.
