Cancelled: International Woodworking Fair 2020
The International Woodworking Fair (IWF), North America’s largest woodworking technology exhibition, has been cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The biennial show was due to be held in Atlanta, Georgia, from 25 to 28 August 2020. There were hopes that the show would still go on, but due to the development surrounding the global pandemic, a cancellation notice has been published on the show’s website.
“As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt our lives and enterprises, IWF 2020 and the global woodworking industry it serves are not immune to such intrusion,” organisers said in a statement. “This unavoidable action comes only after long, intense and exhaustive study and consideration by the IWF show management team working in constant collaboration with the IWF 2020 Management Committee, whose members represent the Wood Machinery Manufacturers of America and the Woodworking Machinery Industry Association.”
The next edition of the IWF will be held from 23 to 26 August 2022.
