Tommy Tomkins is Named New Chairperson of IWF
Charles R. (Tommy) Tomkins, president of Cresent Fine Furniture Co. based in Gallatin, Tenn., was named chairperson of The International Woodoworking Fair (IWF) 2008 at the IWF board of directors meeting held in Atlanta in early December 2006.
"In keeping with the changing industry, IWF is continuing to expand its reach into more than woodworking segments to include windows/doors, surfaces and fabrication, flooring, plastics, architectural woodworking, raw materials, engineered wood products, composites, machine tooling, material handling, forest products and store fixtures," he said.
Tomkins is already making plans for IWF 2008.
"Our plans for the 2008 Fair focus on the twin goals of continuing to build the size and breadth of the exhibitor base and to attract qualified buyers from diverse audiences worldwide by demonstrating that IWF is the one international event where exhibitors and buyers come together to make great things happen for the industry."
As part of this focus, IWF will continue to explore partnerships with industry groups, trade publications, and manufacturers of machinery, supplies across the expanding marketplace to ensure IWF is meeting the needs of our exhibitor and buyer customer base.
