AMERICA'S LARGEST VIRTUAL BUSINESS NETWORKING

About

Changing times require creative solutions. The International Window Coverings Expo is not able to take place live this year for health and safety reasons. Moving forward requires a new approach to bringing the industry together to educate, inform and inspire our path forward. We hope you join us for the first worldwide virtual industry education and business networking event.

IWCE Virtual will take place on July 29 and 30, 2020, exclusively online!

Check back with us soon for registration and a schedule of keynotes, educational sessions and exhibitors. The International Window Coverings Expo is the only U.S. trade event dedicated to the success and growth of the window covering industry.


This annual event is designed specifically for the window fashion decorator, designer, retailer, architect, workroom, installer, remodeler and stager. Thousands of U.S. and international visitors and buyers come for the latest products, technology and education in window coverings, as well as home decor and accessories. At IWCE, you’ll find leading industry suppliers, new and innovative products, and unparalleled networking opportunities.

Due to the inability to hold the show live, we are excited to connect through technology in 2020.
