Carolina s Show Set for Feb. 18-19.
THE FIRST TRADE SHOW of the new millennium has been slated for Feb. 18 and 19 in Greensboro, NC.
The 15th annual Carolinas Show, to be held at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex Special Events Center, will feature machinery, tooling, supplies and services for the furniture, cabinet, millwork, solid surfacing and plastics industries.
The 1999 show drew nearly 7,000 woodworking and furniture professionals to Greensboro, and Trade Shows Inc., the event's sponsor, predicts an even bigger crowd in 2000. "We'll be putting a new slant on some of our educational seminars to make them more interactive," says Trade Shows vice president Keith Eidson. "And we're planning to have a special guest or two on hand."
During the show, seven seminars are scheduled, as is a speech by industry analyst Jerry Epperson titled "The Changing Furniture Landscape." It is scheduled for Friday at 12:30 p.m..
Seminars on Friday are: Pumps and Wood Finishing Applications; Modeling Into the 21st Century; Increasing Your CNC Router Productivity; and Understanding Vacuum Pressing & Clamping Equipment. Saturday seminars are: Innovations in Water-Based Technologies; Surviving in the Rapid Response Workplace; and Hold It! Connectors in the Custom Cabinet Shop.
During the show an award will be presented to a woodworking company that demonstrated humanitarian values in 1999. The first Woodworkers Helping Others Award will be presented to a company that aided the victims of Hurricane Floyd, which devastated eastern North Carolina in September 1999. Trade Shows will make a $1,000 donation to the "Floyd relief" organization chosen by the award recipient.
