ClosetCon 2017 Recap

If you couldn’t attend ClosetCon this year – you missed a great show. Attendee and exhibitor numbers were the biggest since the recession.

Keynote speaker Chris Stevens – one of the founders of the Keurig energized the crowd and discussed how we could become great entrepreneurs.  No matter how big or small your company is – his message resonated with everyone.

The ribbon was cut and the show floor was packed for two days.

Here are a few pics from my booth –

The items that got the most attention was the drying rack, step stool, our new Vertiko wall system, our multifunctional bed that opens over the couch without removing any of the pillows and our new bi-folding door hardware that also slides giving full access to the cabinet.

Richelieu sponsored the red carpet Top Shelf Awards Party – attendees had a great time posing for the paparazzi.

One of the best parts of attending ClosetCon is laughing and partying with great friends.  Pics taken by the best selfie taker I know – Patrick Layne – follow him on Instagram @PatrickLayne
