Festool Connect 2019
« on: August 28, 2019, 12:08 AM »
From Festool ...................

Thank you for your inquiry about Festool Connect!  This year we are handling Festool Connect in a slightly different way.  We have been touring the U.S. and Canada with our Roadshow Truck visiting schools that are preparing the next generation professional to enter the trades.  As the Skills Gap topic is one that is dear to us, we have used this asset and opportunity to engage these students as well as help recruit students into these careers through the participating educational institutes.  In addition to visiting schools coast-to-coast, we have extended each stop by one day for an “Open House” opportunity for both the school and for Festool.  This is a day where we get to “Connect” with users in many different cities.  Not everyone has been able to come to our past events, so we wanted to bridge that gap and meet people where they are.  This year we are scheduled to stop in 27 cities in total.  To find when the Roadshow Truck will be in your city, please visit:


We’d look forward to “connecting” with users at one of these stops.  Also, you can “connect” with us at local dealer events, which are posted here:


If you’d like to learn more about how to use the products we offer hands-on training opportunities.  You can see class postings here:


In addition, we have a slew of videos of product content available on our YouTube channel:


Stay tuned for more exciting information from Festool here on the FOG and follow us on Social Media as well for the latest news.


Again, thank you for your interest and we hope to see you soon!

The Festool USA Team

I made the time to attend the Festool Roadshow here, in Colorado Springs.
I closed the shop so everyone could go. I meet up someone there I’ve know through various forums for 30 years for the first time at the event.

They held the event at The Mill. Very impressive place. Sherwin Williams is in the process of setting up a finish training center at The Mill.

My next hires will come from The Mill, be them in training or graduates.

Unless the Roadshow events are different than in the past, they really aren't that useful. It's just a couple of stations with various tools and too many people to really get much out of it.
