LAS VEGAS, NV − (July 30, 2023) – As the curtains closed on another AWFS®Fair , woodworking professionals, industry insiders and enthusiasts were treated to some of the newest product offerings from participants in this year’s Tool Tour. As we wrap-up AWFS®Fair 2023, we’ll take you on a virtual journey through the highlights of this extraordinary event.

One of the standout features of this year’s Tool Tour was the presentation of our first-ever Maverick Award, to a Tool Tour exhibitor who excelled in marketing their products and brand within the Tool Tour. Celebrating innovation and unconventional thinking in the world of woodworking, UNEEDA ENTERPRIZES INC., were the recipients of the first-ever Maverick Award. UNEEDA ENTERPRIZES INC. exemplified the spirit of creative thinking, offering a fresh take on promoting their products. Their marketing approach attracted the attention of Tool Tour participants and helped build interest and excitement for the Tour’s encore performance after this show feature was first introduced in 2021. The Maverick Award was a reminder that innovation remains the driving force behind the evolution of woodworking.

Hands-On Experience The Tool Tour didn’t just stop at showcasing tools; it also provided attendees with the chance to roll up their sleeves and get hands-on experience. A series of demonstrations allowed participants to test out the latest tools and techniques, gaining valuable knowledge that they can take back to their own workshops. These interactive experiences by all the Tool Tour participants brought another dimension to the event.

Networking and Collaboration Beyond the tools and talks, the AWFS®Fair 2023 Tool Tour fostered an atmosphere of collaboration and networking. Woodworking professionals came together to exchange ideas, share experiences, and build connections. This sense of community is one of the most important benefits of attending live events.

Looking Forward As we bid adieu to AWFS®Fair  2023, the excitement doesn’t end. The tools, technologies, and inspiration gained from this event will continue to shape the future of woodworking. In conclusion, the 2023 Tool Tour was successful in providing our exhibitors another platform to showcase their products and fostering a sense of camaraderie within the woodworking community.
