*PLEASE NOTE: We currently expect to hold FENCETECH 2023 in person, but arrangements are subject to change.  We will keep all of our speakers informed as the situation changes.

AFA is excited to continue offering conference tracks for 2023. The conference has always evolved in response to new challenges and opportunities facing the fence industry. These leading-edge tracks set a new standard for research and solutions that will shape the future of fencing. AFA is looking for a wide array of topics that are innovative, engaging, inspiring, and informative for fence and deck contractors across the USA. AFA’s goal is to offer relevant, timely education and training to help attendees do their jobs more effectively and make their businesses more successful. Conference attendees are interested in hearing the latest trends, installation techniques, and best practices from industry experts and peers. First-hand perspectives provide insight. Proposals should address contemporary or emerging issues confronting the fence profession.


Participants are fence, deck and access control professionals. Participants include contractors, installers, business owners, upper management, sales staff — anyone charged with increasing performance in the workplace. Experience levels of the participants also vary from individuals new to the industry to seasoned veterans.
