AWFS® Fair Receives Tradeshow Week's Fastest 50 Award
The Association of Woodworking & Furnishings Suppliers® biennial tradeshow in Las Vegas, the AWFS® Fair, is a winner of the 2006 Tradeshow Week Fastest 50 award. In 2005, the Fair was also promoted nine spots, from 51 to 42, making it into the top 50 of the Tradeshow Week 200.
"We are absolutely thrilled to receive the Fastest 50 Award from Tradeshow Week. For the second time in a three show period, we are honored to be among the prestigious list of the 50 fastest growing tradeshows in the country. For a show that's celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2007, this is an incredible accomplishment and we are excited as we continue developing this event into a dynamic, destination experience that's not only a great business forum, but also a lot of fun," said Skip Hem, Royal Plywood vice president of the composite panel division and AWFS president.
The 2007 AWFS® Fair will offer more than 500,000 net square feet of modern show space, well-suited for an international trade event. As of late August, over 421,000 net square feet of exhibit space had already been sold, making the 2007 event the largest in the history of AWFS® Fair.
The new features for 2007 include the inclusion of the Fair in the U.S. Department of Commerce' International Buyer Program and the addition of the Wood Industry Forum, announced last month in Atlanta.
Tradeshow Week will honor the winners of the 2006 Fastest 50 award in Boston
this November at a black-tie gala.
