Wolff’s 2013 Sharpening Convention

Come Visit Wolff's SC Plant, Network, and Learn!!

Now is the time to start making your plans to attend the Wolff 2013 Sharpening Convention in Greenville, SC. The show dates are August 16th through the 18th.  This year Wolff is bringing back our old show format. Wolff went to smaller shows in 2007 and feel it’s time they got back to the larger show format that sports attendance of over 100 sharpeners and multiple vendors in the industry. During the day on Friday the 16th, Wolff will be hosting a run of plant tours and a yard sale at the Wolff plant in Spartanburg (about 17 miles from the host hotel). During this time Wolff will be doing demonstrations, you’ll have a chance to meet their family of workers, and  you can sign in for the convention on Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday & Sunday will host Wolff's popular seminars and vendor room.  Both are geared toward sharpeners who specialize in sharpening barber, beauty, and grooming shears, clipper blades, and clipper repair.  Seminars will include classes on sharpening on the Ookami Gold® and Twice as Sharp® sharpening systems, flat hone sharpening, clipper blade sharpening, clipper repair, manufacturing shears, marketing your business and more. To register for the sharpening convention call Wolff Industries at 800-888-3832. The price to attend is $35 for the first person and $15 for each additional person from your shop if you register by May 15th, and $45 for the first person and $25 for each additional person from your shop if you register after that date. All registrations received by June 15th will be in entered into a special drawing where you will have a chance to win Wolff's E-Kit, a set of Wolff's Ookami® shears with a retail value of over $1320.00.
