The Woodworking Network Leadership Forum is a top-level conference
aimed at executives from North
America’s largest woodworking and/or
most innovative companies. The goal
is to examine business, technology,
and material trends that will impact
the design and production of cabinetry, furniture and interior millwork
over the next decade.
The Woodworking Network Leadership Forum is a TEDx-style conference
presenting fresh ideas on wood industry materials and technology, presented with flair, peer to peer networking
and audience interaction.
The all-day event will address real-
world business challenges, emerging
technological developments, new
management thought processes, and
understanding the new consumer. The
Leadership Forum concludes with a
panel made up of the Woodworking
Network 40 under 40 honorees.
Immediately following the symposia
and Leadership Forum, all participants
will be invited to attend the Wood-
working Network 40 under 40 recep-
tion, which recognizes the Class of
2018 and alumni.
Symposia and the Leadership Forum provide intensive opportunities to network and talk face-to-face with industry experts.
In addition to the latest information on new technology, symposia offer plenty of opportunities
for questions and answers.
