ATLANTA  – The International Woodworking Fair (IWF) is pleased to announce a 40 percent increase in early attendee registration in comparison with IWF’s last event, which was hosted in 2010.

In addition to increases in advanced registration IWF is seeing a surge in exhibit sales. IWF is pacing ahead of 2010 and will be a larger event compared to 2010 with 792 exhibits currently. The top manufacturers of machinery, supplies & services will be displaying the most innovative products available to the marketplace.

“In addition to the rebounding housing market, we suspect that increased attendee numbers can be attributed to demand for new machinery, supplies & services that IWF exhibitors offer,” says Michael Burdis, IWF 2012 chairman and president of James L. Taylor Manufacturing Company. “The increase in exhibitor sales and advanced registration all point to a very strong IWF 2012.”

The IWF tradeshow brings together industry leaders and showcases innovative products, machinery, materials and design. IWF 2012 will be held August 22-25 in Atlanta at the Georgia World Congress Center. For up-to-date and industry updates, connect with IWF on Facebook and Twitter.
