WMS 2019 is gearing up to attract more exhibitors and this year it will be a robust conference program than ever. The show will kick off on October 31 and attract more exhibitors from all over the world. One of the most robust conference programs is expected to attract more than 170 manufacturers and distributors of woodworking machinery and supplies will participate at this year’s show, an increase of more than 15 percent from previous years. These exhibitors will collectively display and demonstrate products spread over more than 66,000 net square feet of space, also a substantial increase from two years ago.
Show organizers expect more than 5,000 woodworking industry professionals to attend the three-day show. “WMS represents the best opportunity for woodworkers to connect with all of the leading manufacturers and distributors based in Canada as well as many exhibitors from the U.S., Europe and Asia all in one place at one time,” said Tim Fixmer, president and CEO of CCI Canada Inc., owner of the biennial show. “The show is a one-stop shop for attendees to find new machinery to upgrade their manufacturing plants, seek out new products and sources of hardware, panel products and components; and be exposed to new ideas and concepts to improve their products and operations.”
“Making it right with your customers,” by Mike Holmes, professional contractor and co-star of DIY Network’s Holmes and Holmes. Holmes said he plans to devote a portion of his talk to how he deals with price-sensitive customers. “Solving the pricing puzzle.” Sampson will draw on lessons he has learned from his experience of organizing FDMC’s annual Pricing Survey to help attendees get a better handle on the mechanics of putting together bids that will win jobs and make money.

The 2019 edition of WMS features the most robust educational programming in WMS’ history, said Harry Urban, show manager. “Our conference sessions complement the offerings on the show floor and give attendees the opportunity to hear from some of the most exciting voices and insightful experts in the industry. A number of the seminar topics are geared toward giving the woodworking owners and executives who attend them cause to reimagine how they can operate their businesses more efficiently and profitably.”
