It Takes A Village

It takes a village to pull off a show like the International Woodworking Fair (IWF).  Preparation by Allen, Joel and Jen starts many months before the actual show.  Machines and accessories are chosen, carpet is picked out, electrical power is ordered, hotels and airfares are reserved, trade show shirts are designed and the list goes on and on.

Weeks before the show, our team in the shop winds the motors, builds the motors and assembles the saws.  Greg skids and packages the shipment and Tina organizes the pick up at our factory in Britt, Iowa, and the drop off at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

Derek, Chris, Joel and Allen meet the shipment in Atlanta and handle set up, working the booth and tear down.

All come home tired, with barely a voice left, and start to reach out to all those that were met and are interested in our products.

The video above looks like lots of fun, (which it is :)) but it takes a village to pull together a show like IWF!
