Wood Pro Expo Florida/Closets Conference returns

 Saturday, January 7, 2023

The Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm Beach will once again host the Closets Conference & Expo and Wood Pro Expo Florida from April 12–14. The trade fair component of CCE/WPE Florida takes place April 13–14 after a full day of educational sessions and plant tours on April 12. Both the closets business and professional woodworking are covered in the two tracks of the seminars. Visitors will see Closet Lifestyle, a big manufacturing facility with a 3,000-square-foot showroom, in adjacent Riviera Beach. Soon there will be news of a second tour. The co-located events were the first significant business gatherings following the start of the COVID epidemic, and they took place in West Palm Beach in 2021.

The Top Shelf Design Awards event, which begins at 5:30 p.m., is the highlight of Day 2. Designers are recognised with awards each year for their innovative closet and home organization ideas. The event’s educational programming continues throughout the Expo days, with keynotes opening days 2 and 3. Closets & Wood Pro Expo’s sales manager, Laurel Didier, responded by saying Palm Beach has always been a terrific venue for the events. More than a thousand people attended the show in 2021. Florida is undergoing a lot of building and refurbishment because of its wonderful weather, low taxes, and, regrettably, hurricanes. Didier added that there is also a nationwide draw for the tournaments. As the only yearly exhibition for all closet and home organizing specialists, the show will bring the Closets Expo to a North American audience. The knowledgeable speakers that the hosts invite, as well as the varied selection of exhibitors, are greatly appreciated by the participants. Laurel Didier continued that while the Wood Pro crowd is somewhat more regional, some still travel more than 300 miles to attend.

“The reception brings everyone together for a night of celebration, friendship, and networking between attendees and vendors,” said Didier. “We usually have about 250 to 300 guests. It’s a must-attend event.” The Top Shelf Awards are sponsored by CCF Industries.
