Virtual Events Announcement
On behalf of everyone at The Woodworking Shows, we hope this email finds you well. We know you have been waiting to hear what TWWS has planned regarding the 2021 show schedule and we cannot thank you enough for your patience.
We have been spending the last few months working on various show scenarios, launched a new website with further digital capabilities, as well as patiently watching how the pandemic has been playing out. This includes following other in-person trade shows and events, outreach to each show venue, and learning about general public safety guidelines, specifically around large gatherings.
With so many unknowns affecting each show location, we have made the very difficult decision to not hold any in-person shows through March 2021. We will reassess the situation in the spring of 2021, and we will be sure to keep you informed of any and all developments.
In the meantime, we are excited to announce our first online woodworking education seminars, which will be launching shortly. We would love to hear your feedback, so please reach out directly to let us know if there is a seminar that you would like to see.
We are also currently working on plans for “The Woodworking Show – Virtual” to launch in early 2021. We will be in touch with further details around timing, exhibitor registration and tickets. Until then, we are continuing to develop our online platform, which will also help the show’s growth with the goals of reaching more woodworking enthusiasts.
We do understand that the shift to a virtual season may be disappointing, but we truly hope we have your support as we navigate these new territories, while doing what is best for the health and safety of all show vendors, goer’s and supporters. We also understand that this adjustment may create financial hardships for our vendors and educators. Please know that we are working hard to creatively provide an unique virtual experience, and if there is any way we can pivot to support the woodworking community, we will do so. Please feel free to share your ideas with us as well.
The time is also a financial hardship for The Woodworking Shows, so we appreciate any and all involvement and support during the 2021 season. Please note, that help can be as simple as sharing a TWWS social media post, or forwarding one of our emails to a friend.
We have truly missed being on the show floor, sharing stories, and seeing all the amazing woodworking projects up close and in person. We know that this will be a temporary adjustment to TWWS, and that we will be able to gather safely with the woodworking community in the not so distant future.
