CHICAGO — The International Woodworking Fair (IWF) Atlanta established a cooperation agreement with the European Federation of Woodworking Machinery Manufacturers (EUMABOIS), making IWF the only woodworking trade show in North America to be designated as an EUMABOIS-supported exhibition.
The cooperation agreement will help expand IWF’s global reach and enhance its services in the European woodworking industry. The two organizations will work together on joint strategic marketing initiatives that will be mutually beneficial for customers and constituencies.
“IWF’s new cooperation agreement with EUMABOIS expands our global presence and acknowledges the European woodworking industry’s strategic role in bringing leading-edge technology and innovation to the U.S. marketplace through the IWF portal,” IWF Atlanta Vice President, Marketing, Michael Turnbull said.
