The Unfinished Furniture Association announced that, "the exciting world of real wood furniture is coming to The Rio All Suites Hotel in Las Vegas, Nev., July 20-22, 2008." The show will feature furniture products presented by the Unfinished Furniture Association (UFA). The UFA is promoting featured products with the tag line, "SUIT any need" -- real wood furniture that can be custom finished in any color and style shoppers desire. The show will kick off with a special keynote presentation, "Staying Alive During Slow Times" by Joe Capillo, a 35-year furniture industry veteran and contributing editor of Furniture World Magazine. The furniture industry is facing its most difficult times in decades. In Joe's presentation, he combines interesting consumer research with his own insights to help retailers manage their business and plan for the future. Informative business educational opportunities continue throughout the show. One greatly anticipated highlight is a presentation of the association's new consumer Web site offering shoppers a wide array of furniture for every room in the house and connecting them to a local retailer where they can make their purchase. UFA is proud to present an online resource guaranteeing the highest quality furniture with countless customizable options. The trade show brings together leading manufacturers and retailers of real wood furniture, accessories and related products for two days of networking and maximized buying during the most important time of year. The latest industry products and services will be on display, including thousands of new product introductions only at this show.
