After being requested by show attendees, the Tool Tour has made its debut at the ongoing AWFS Fair.

"For the first time, we are bringing you the AWFS Fair Tool Tour!" showrunners say. "Exhibitors who specialize in hand and power tools will be placed around the show floor. Attendees will be able to go on a tour of all these exhibitors and see what fun new tools they can snag for their shop!"

Here's how attendees can participate:

1) Pick up a stamp card at the registration desk.
2) Visit each booth on the card & get all the participating exhibitors’ stamps.
3) Turn in your fully stamped card in at the AWFS booth in the lobby & get a free t-shirt

“Although technology and advanced equipment is a key focal point of the AWFS Fair, we have had many of our attendees request to see an expanded emphasis on power tool and small equipment manufacturers," says Blum's VP of sales Brian Joyce. "These products are used daily, by nearly every shop in our industry. We believe the Tool Tour is a great way to highlight these products, especially the industry’s newest offerings, while also adding a fun element for exhibitors and buyers alike.”
