Nearly 1,000 exhibitors have contracted for exhibit space occupying more than 500,000 net sq. ft., making IWF 2016 the largest fair since 2008, according to the producer.
“The demand for exhibit space has been extremely high and we are looking forward to a great 2016 fair,” Tom Onsrud, IWF 2016 chairman and president of C.R. Onsrud, said in a statement.
The IWF will take place Aug. 24-27 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
The surge continues with attendee registration 25 percent ahead of 2014. Hotel bookings and registrations for educational sessions are up as well.
IWF will feature six symposiums on Aug. 23 and an expanded educational program which begins Aug. 24 with nearly 60 sessions.
