As a professional woodworker, a weekend warrior, or a DIY pro, you may be looking for different ways to improve your woodworking craft. The learning process is ongoing, especially when you have the opportunity to gain new knowledge directly from the experts.

In terms of expanding your education, trade shows are an excellent source for all of your woodworking educational needs. Here are the top four reasons why you should consider attending trade shows, and how they are important for expanding your existing knowledge and expertise.

You learn from the best

Every woodworking trade show is packed with incredible guest speakers who have dedicated themselves to the art and science of the woodworking industry. These professionals have a lot to say, not just about how you can improve your current craft, but also how you can apply your skills to a wide-range of projects.

You get to network

Meeting other people in your industry is a big part of expanding and enriching your business. Making connections and adding contacts to your potential customer base will allow you to build better relationships, which will ultimately increase your sales. Be prepared to follow-up with the people you meet: you may glean some important client or competitor information in the process.

You get to find out what’s new and improved

Discovering new trends in the woodworking world, as well as different ways to achieve amazing results, are worth the price of admission. By finding out what direction woodworking and consumer demand is heading in, you’ll have a better idea of where and how to position your own business within the industry.

You get to join in on the benefits of attending the AWFS Fair

The AWFS Fair is one of the woodworking industry’s most popular trade shows and is happening in Las Vegas, Nevada from July 17th to July 20th. This gives you the perfect chance to check out everything that the woodworking industry has to offer. It is one of the best places to learn from industry experts, network with other woodworking professionals, and hone in on your own business and craft.

In addition, our own Jim Larin, inductee of Wood Industry’s “40 Under 40,” for 2019 will be speaking at the event on Thursday, July 18th, at 1:30 PM to 3 PM. Jim will be speaking about how to choose the correct HVLP spray system for your needs. He’ll also be at the Fuji Spray booth #4271.
