Who will be at the AWFS Fair 2023?
The key to a successful event is knowing who, exactly, these attendees are. So, let’s take a quick look at their profile (as outlined the show’s prospectus).
This show caters to woodworking professionals. It brings together the home and commercial furnishings industry, including manufacturers and distributors of machinery, hardware, lumber, construction materials and other suppliers to the furniture, cabinet manufacturers and custom woodworkers.
50 percent of attendees are owners, presidents, CEOs, VPs, or GMs; 13 are in sales or marketing; 9 percent are managers or supervisors; and the remaining 28 percent are “other”. They come from all 50 states, and over 80 countries.
Knowing their job titles and the geographic area they serve is only the first step. Next, you need to know how big a role they play in purchasing decisions. Here’s what happened at the 2021 event:
- 70% purchased a product on-site, committed to purchasing a product, or plan to purchase a product within a year.
- 93% had the power to buy, authorize, or make business recommendations based on their interactions with exhibitors.
- 33% said they made purchases at the tradeshow.
The last thing you need to know to properly prepare your exhibit is, what are these attendees looking for? Attendees are looking to:
- See new products and solutions on the show floor
- Keep up to date with the latest trends and technology
- Network with attendees and vendors
If your brand offers up unique woodworking products or services that’ll help attendees meet their goals and expand their businesses, you’ll want to stand out at this show.
