This year's event takes attendees to Northern Italy,  May 9-15, 2020, and provides an opportunity for members to observe leading-edge solutions to improve their quality and production methods.

We will be visiting some of the most advanced woodworking machinery and manufacturing facilities, providing an unrivaled opportunity to gain an edge in discovering “what’s next” in the global woodworking industry.
