The first is in Pasadena, Calif., October 12-14, at the Pasadena Convention Center.
The second will be in Greater Cincinnati, November 2-4, at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center (the same venue as in 2010 and 2011).
Although in the past we’ve waited to make the announcement until we had all the speakers, toolmakers and “extra-curricular” events lined up, we decided to let you know a little earlier this year to make it easier to plan vacations (and perhaps earmark that upcoming tax return for a tool buy in the Marketplace).
I don’t yet have any other specifics to release, but I do know that we’ll continue to showcase the top talent in woodworking, with plenty of classes that will cover a broad range of woodworking topics, from hand tools to power tools, 17th-century to contemporary design, hidden compartments to exposed joinery.
Both shows will have an unparalleled (except by each other) Marketplace featuring the best toolmakers in the U.S. and from around the world. Both shows will have an amazing lineup of instructors and classes. Both shows will be awesome.
As soon as I have specifics (lists of classes, instructors, evening activities, and more), we’ll post them here. Oh – and the WIA web site is not yet operational – I’ll let you know when that’s ready, too. And of course, we’ll let you know when registration opens (no, I don’t yet know when that will be).
