Registration is now open to attend the 34th Forest Products Machinery & Equipment Exposition – EXPO 2017. This three-day event will be held June 14-16 at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center.

Sponsored and conducted by the Southern Forest Products Association (SFPA) every two years since 1950, this event has traditionally included many of the biggest names in the business, attracting key representatives from the nation’s largest wood products manufacturers.

The show for 2017 is shaping up to be another record event – larger than the 2015 show – continuing to benefit from an industry-wide recovery and many companies with ongoing upgrades underway. More than 150 companies are set to exhibit the latest equipment and services for the forest products industry, across more than 51,000 square feet of indoor space.

Some exhibit space remains. “More than 90% of the floor plan is under contract,” notes SFPA exposition director Eric Gee.  “Many exhibitors returning from the 2015 show have expanded their displays for EXPO 2017, plus we have many first-time exhibitors,” he adds.
