Get it All (and More) at IWF 2002

Door and window manufacturers who work with wood or wood composites won’t want to miss the International Woodworking Machinery and Furniture Supply Fair (IWF) 2002, to be held August 22-25 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. 

Show organizers say that the event will feature more than 1,200 exhibiting companies filling more than 800,000 net square feet of exhibit space. Products showcased will include supplies, machinery, raw materials, hardware and services for both large and small manufacturers. 

So what will companies gain by attending IWF? “IWF exhibitors can show you how to do things better, smarter, faster, with less waste—and help you make prudent and practical decisions about your company’s growth potential,” said show organizers.” Exhibitors will also be available to inform attendees how to improve production capacity and reduce set-up time, and stay ahead of the competition by applying new technology or processes to existing production methods.
