-Canadian Show Producer Brings Global Companies to Your Home-
When it comes to woodworking for hobbyists, the industry has seen an explosion of interest. With COVID-19 sending a majority of people into months of isolation in their homes, hobbyists had more time to enjoy their craft. Oak Leaf Productions, the Ontario-based family-run event producers of the Toronto, Woodstock, and Hamilton Woodworking Shows bring the Virtual Woodworking Show to a screen near you from November 6 to 8, 2020.
“Although it is always preferable to engage face-to-face in this industry, a virtual show has some real benefits,” explains Gina Downes, Show Manager. “We can get more global companies, with distributors in Canada. We can fit more people, at one time, into a booth, in a seminar or at the Main Stage. Also, we can get in some of the most popular industry influencers and handy people in the region are missing Oak Leaf’s annual woodworking shows due to this COVID-19.
People interest in attending should visit https://woodshows.com/registration as soon as possible to secure their place at the event. It will not be long until admission if offered to the rest of Canada, North America and the world.
