Participate in Show Features

So now you have a booth at AWFS®Fair. But how do you guarantee that you’ll be visited by the quality attendees and key decision makers at the show? One of the best ways to make sure your booth captures the attention of attendees is by participating in show features, like the Tool Tour (introduced at the 2021 show), the various pavilions, and Rapid Fire on AWFS®Fair Live Stage!



Returning for 2023!

Get your lassos ready the Tool Tour is back with a western theme and we are ready to get our boots kickin’! The Tool Tour is a showcase of exhibitors who specialize in handheld power tools. Attendees will visit your booth and learn and experience your new tools.  Everyone has fun and if you finish the tour, there is a free collector’s t-shirt to take back to the shop!

We’ve lined up a bang-up marketing plan and created a program to make sure fans sure will reach each stop on the tour! By doing so, we will continue to increase exhibitor and attendee participation for the Fair, and create some interactive fun with a commemorative t-shirt for those attendees that complete the Tour. Tour t-shirts will list all participating exhibitors!


  • All participating companies will be on the “Tool Tour” where attendees will be motivated to visit each exhibitors’ booth on the tour during the show. This will be fun and accessible through the AWFS®Fair App.
  • AWFS®Fair will implement a specific and comprehensive targeted marketing campaign in order to inform and encourage buyers to attend the event.
