August 16, 2021 - Recently, Osborne Wood Products attended the Association of Woodworking & Furnishings Suppliers (AWFS) Fair in Las Vegas on July 20-23, 2021. The AWFS Fair is known as the “Innovation Marketplace” in the woodworking and furniture industries. With over 600 exhibitors and tens of thousands of attendees, AWFS is undoubtedly the place to go for the newest and best woodworking components, hardware, services, technology and more.
Those in attendance from Osborne Wood Products included CEO Leon Osborne, marketing director Jeremy McClain, and members of the marketing and customer service teams. The booth featured a slimmer look than in past years, focusing instead on displaying a wider range of products that Osborne offers as well as providing a better atmosphere for cultivating connections with other businesses and builders.
Products on display included a selection of Osborne’s best-selling island legs in mission, farmhouse, classic, contemporary, and fusion styles, along with a sampling of corbels, bun feet, and moldings in best-selling styles, as well.
There were also several tables dedicated to new products, including the new selection of contemporary acrylic table legs and furniture feet, metal table legs, recent additions to the new Mid-Century Modern line of products, and new corbels in classic and contemporary styles. Many of these products can be seen on Osborne’s YouTube channel or Facebook page, where short videos were shot on-site featuring members of the team briefly touching on each of the types of products there.
While there were concerns initially about how Covid-19 would impact the show going into it, the impact was minimal. Jeremy McClain had this to say about the show:
“Early in the pandemic, shows in most industries were cancelled. After fifteen months, we were very pleased to be able to attend the first national show in our industry that was able to proceed. Overall, the show was well-attended and we were able to meet many of our goals.”
Osborne is hopeful that the success of the AWFS Fair will continue with other trade shows they are slated to attend in the future.
