The Southern Forest Products Association (SFPA) has announced that its 35th Forest Products Machinery & Equipment Exposition – Expo 2019 – will be held June 26-28, 2019 at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center.

Sponsored and conducted by SFPA every two years since 1950, this event has traditionally included many of the biggest names in the business displaying everything from sawmill machinery to materials handling equipment, attracting key representatives from the nation’s largest wood products manufacturers. Expo 2017 featured 183 exhibitors, with a total attendance of just over 2,000.

“Expo 2019 is the best place to be for companies wanting to showcase the latest equipment, products and services for the wood industry,” commented Eric Gee, SFPA’s exposition director.

An online sales kit and exhibit space application will be available in mid-May. “We will also be rolling out new event management software that streamlines the exhibit space selection and confirmation process,” Eric added.
