IWF Symposium: Creating New Products and Business Approaches

Although the International Woodworking Fair (IWF) is scheduled to begin Aug. 20 in Atlanta, the real action kicks off a day earlier when a full-day symposium—Woodworking Inventors: Creating New Products and Business Approaches—looks at how a new breed of woodworkers is approaching the market of the future. The session, presented by Woodworking Network and sponsored by Timber Products Company, runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Georgia World Congress Center.

“The symposium is a great opportunity for distributors and cabinet makers to hear from custom woodworkers on business philosophy, new products and marketing strategies,” said Timber Products Director of Marketing Roger Rutan. “It’s a chance to get inside the minds of companies that will be leading the business through a transformation. We’re thrilled to be involved and are looking forward to hearing from these innovators.”  

Specifically, the symposium will dive deep into new products, how to produce them and how to take them to market successfully. Attendees will hear from a variety of woodworkers and designers who have succeeded and were featured in the Customer Woodworking Business Woodworking Inventors’ article series.

Our social media team will be on hand at the symposium, gathering content and talking with several experts, so watch for video interviews on the Timber Products social media channels after the show and live tweets during the event.
