Dreams Do Come True At IWF.
Festool exhibited at the International Woodworking Machinery & Furniture Supply Fair (IWF) 2008 in Atlanta, GA on August 20-23rd. We had thousands of people visit our booth and there was a lot to be seen. There were seven demo stations showcasing all of our major tools, including the newest products, the Kapex sliding compound miter saw, MFK 700 trim router, OF 2200 router and MFT/3 multifunction table. Marc Spagnuolo, ‘The Wood Whisperer’, also demonstrated the Festool tools at the booth Wednesday and Thursday.
We also did a daily tool giveaway, ranging from a Rotex 150 dual-mode sander to a TS 75 plunge saw. Attendees completed a contest card asking various questions related to the demos and received either a Kapex t-shirt, Festool hat or watch. Two or three entrants per day who were spotted wearing one of the items were randomly selected to win a free Festool power tool. Everyone who completed a contest card was entered into a drawing for a Festool Dream Shop Giveaway held at the end of the show. The Festool Dream Shop Giveaway included a Kapex, MFT/3-Kapex, MFT/3, TS 55, OF 1400, Rotex 150, Domino, CT 22, C 12 with chucks, as well as tool training – a value of over $7000! We would like to congratulation our Dream Shop winnner, William Goodpastor from Cincinnati, Ohio, who is pictured above attending training at our facility in Indianapolis.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by the booth. We hope you enjoyed the show and look forward to seeing you at AWFS in Las Vegas next year – July 15-18, 2009 at booth number 5875!
