Open to the public, the conference is a new annual initiative that will provide professional development and peer support for bench workers and create new global dialogues to advance the field.

Since its inception, it has launched its first fellowship program, where aspiring luthiers are matched with more experienced members of the community to encourage the development of skills and knowledge on and off the bench.
