We are happy to announce that the Timber Processing and Energy Expo will be held September 28-30, 2016 at the Portland Exposition Center in Portland, Ore. This will mark the third biennial TP&EE to be produced by Hatton-Brown Expositions, an affiliate of Hatton-Brown Publishers, Inc. and Timber Processing and Panel World magazines.
The 2014 event was a major success, featuring 170 exhibitors who displayed their equipment and technologies to 1,700 industry producer personnel, representing 140 wood products companies and hundreds of lumber, veneer/plywood and engineered wood products mill operations. Non-exhibitor attendance increased by 70% compared to the 2012 event. The event also continues to attract an international audience, with 22 countries represented. In addition, 1,000 exhibitor personnel were on hand.
The 2014 TP&EE was held as housing and wood products markets rebounded from the devastating declines of previous years. Wood products companies and exhibitors conducted “real” business on the show floor. More of the same is expected in 2016 as market forecasts remain positive for the future, meaning wood products producers will continue to enhance their operations with capital expenditure on new machinery and systems.
The 2014 TP&EE also included two workshop days that featured presentations on a range of lumber, plywood and engineered wood products technologies. Many exhibitor companies took advantage of the opportunity to participate in these workshops through presentations on their latest systems. More than 200 people attended the workshops.
We look forward to your participation in the 2016 Timber Processing & Energy Expo.
