The International Woodworking Fair Atlanta—North America’s oldest and largest global woodworking technology and design trade show and conference—has established a Cooperation Agreement with the European Federation of Woodworking Machinery Manufacturers (EUMABOIS) for the purpose of expanding IWF’s global reach and enhancing its services extended to the European woodworking industry.

Under the Cooperation Agreement, IWF becomes the sole North American woodworking trade show designated as a EUMABOIS-supported exhibition. IWF and EUMABOIS collaborative efforts will encompass strategic joint marketing communications initiatives executed for the mutual benefit of their respective customers and constituencies.

Founded in 1960, EUMABOIS is a non-profit organization aimed at promoting the European Woodworking Machinery Industry, primarily by bringing together national sectoral associations, but also individual companies without officially appointed bodies. Guided by principles of cooperation, innovation, and technological advancement, the European Federation, whose scope covers more than 800 companies, strives to increase the attractiveness of woodworking machinery and foster its potential along the entire value chain.
