Roadshow at IWF - Atlanta
« on: August 27, 2016, 01:42 PM »
I just returned from the IWF show in Atlanta. Festool had the Roadshow Semi-truck parked in the convention center as their booth. There were some multi-million dollar set-ups there as well, but the Festool area was the most unique. It seemed to be very well-received with many people watching Festool demos and trying the tools. I didn't take any photos, but I'm sure they're available if you check the Festool Facebook page. Without question, the highlight of my show experience was seeing Minnie there, looking and feeling well again. If you've ever been to a training class in Lebanon, you know that Minnie is about the sweetest person you'll ever meet.

Great to see that Festool was back at IWF.  Too bad they didn't mention it here that there were going to be there.  I am sure a few of their faithful might have gone out of their way to attend.

Minnie ROCKS!  Haven't seen Minnie in quite a few years but that should be remedied in a couple of weeks.  Looking forward to seeing Festool folks again.

Stopped by the display and checked out the Conturo MFT table and the corded HK55.  I don't recall seeing these at the roadshow.  It was good to see Festool back.  It was mostly the roadshow redux so if you attended that event, you didn't miss anything new.

BTW, it was mentioned in IWF2016 thread so the faithful should have been informed.
