They’ll be Back: Rescheduled Events for the Industry

There are a lot of changes going on in an uncertain world, but those changes can’t keep a good event down! Many woodworking industry events have been cancelled or postponed due to the covid-19 pandemic.  We’re sharing an update on where these events stand:

The Hardwood Manufacturers Association postponed its National Conference and Expo until August 19-21, 2020 in Nashville, TN.

Originally postponed until June, the High Point Market Authority recently announced that its spring High Point Market has been cancelled. Their Fall Market is set to take place October 17-21, 2020.

Additionally, the Woodworking Network canceled their in-person Cabinets & Closets/Wood Pro Expo scheduled for June 10-12, 2020, and in its place, offered a series of webinars in four-hour sessions on May 19-20. The Woodworking Network team worked on a number of alternative online learning events to allow registered attendees, exhibitors and the entire Woodworking Network audience to hear from presenters who were scheduled to present at the event. The event in its entirety can be viewed here.

KCMA’s own Spring Conference was cancelled, but we’ll be back in Phoenix for 2022 and our Fall Management Conference & Plant Tours is taking place as scheduled in Minneapolis this October.
