Nominate a deserving customer for a Wooden Globe Award and you might win a free trip to WIC 2020!

Every year, WMIA honors excellence among woodworking companies by presenting the annual Wooden Globe Awards. WMIA members nominate their customers, and awards are presented in three categories: Educator of the Year, Commitment to Excellence Through Technology, and the newly refocused Innovation of the Year.

What’s in it for you? You get the chance to showcase a successful customer utilizing equipment you’ve sold them. The nominator for each winning entry will have the opportunity to personally present the award to their nominee at the awards ceremony during WIC 2020 in Isle of Palms, SC, May 5-8, 2020, and WMIA will pay your WIC registration fee and travel expenses if your nominee wins.

What’s in it for the winner? The winners get the chance to showcase their company and products to the WIC audience and, just as important, to the trade press, which will spread the word through their publications. Travel and two nights’ hotel expenses for one award winner per category and their significant other will be paid for by WMIA.

Nominations for the 2020 cycle are due January 15, 2020. You can review the awards criteria to see how WMIA’s Marketing Committee evaluates nominees, and when you’re ready to submit your nomination, download the nomination form.

The Wooden Globe Awards are a tremendous example to your customers and the trade press about the impact investing in new equipment and technology can have on their bottom line, and also demonstrates the effectiveness of education in the woodworking technology field. Don’t miss this opportunity to recognize those worthy of this award.
