Gearing Up for a Busy Week at IWF Atlanta

PRE-SHOW PREP We arrived in hot, humid Atlanta, Georgia, a day early to set up our booth for the biennial International Woodworking Fair, where more than 12,000 people are expected to walk the floor Wednesday through Saturday to view the latest and greatest technologies in the industry.

Some first day highlights, according to the Woodworking Network:

  • Announcement of the seven winners of the Distinguished Challengers Award Competition, which celebrates innovations in the woodworking industry. Winners are selected from a pool of 20 finalists and announced at 11 a.m. Wednesday in booth #5000 in Building B. Read the Woodworking Network's Challengers Award handbook here.
  • Several educational conferences throughout the day on a wide range of topics, including "Made in the USA" manufacturing, business survival, mass customization and developing strategies for a changing market. You can find the entire schedule for Wednesday — and every other day of the trade show — right here on the IWF website.
  • And of course, don't forget to meet us at booth #4412, where you can check out our sawdust demo, washdown demo and other displays. See you there!
