April 10, 2017 Regional Event
This day-long educational event features visits to design showrooms in downtown Chicago as well as a tour of a local woodworking shop.
The CMA has been hosting high-value events such as this since 1998 as a means of connecting similar-sized shops around North America with the purpose of sharing best practices and business acumen, while learning how other businesses do what they do. The regional events typically involve plant tours, educational seminars, networking, and simply a chance to talk shop and share issues, solutions and even projects. Although they are dubbed "regional", these events typically draw attendees from across the country as well as Canada.
On Monday, April 10, we will begin with a networking breakfast, and then we will head to downtown Chicago to tour nuHaus (Exclusive Woodworking’s showroom). We will also spend time at the Merchandise Mart, and enjoy a cooking demo and lunch in the SubZero/Wolf showroom.
In the afternoon, we will travel to Exclusive Woodworking in Waukegan for an inside glimpse of their production and processes. The day will conclude with a group dinner.
A detailed agenda will be provided to registrants closer to the event date.
Transportation and meals will be provided. The bus will depart from and return to the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel. The registration fee is $35.
