Even with an additional 5,000 square feet of exhibit space added to the floor plan back in November, exhibitors are clamoring for the remaining 1,500 square feet that remains for EXPO 2015 – the 33rd Forest Products Machinery & Equipment Exposition. The three-day event, sponsored and conducted by the Southern Forest Products Association (SFPA), is set for June 10-12 in Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center.

More than 130 companies are planning to showcase the latest technology, equipment and services for the forest products industry, displayed across some 47,000 square feet of exhibit space.

“This show is already 25% larger than the 2013 event. Thanks to a stronger market, many companies are returning to EXPO 2015 with larger exhibit spaces,” noted SFPA exposition director Eric Gee. “Plus, the show is attracting many first-time exhibitors,” he added.

Some good exhibit spaces remain on the floor plan. Space applications submitted before February 2 receive a 10% discount on exhibit space. Exhibitors can expand their promotional efforts before and during the show using a variety of advertising and sponsorship opportunities.
