2016 TP&EE Registration Is Open!


Organizers of the third Timber Processing & Energy Expo (TP&EE) announce that attendee registration on-line is open.

TP&EE will be held September 28-30 at the Portland Exposition Center in Portland, Ore. It is hosted by Timber Processing and Panel World magazines, produced by Hatton-Brown Expositions LLC, and caters to primary producers of lumber, plywood and engineered wood products.

The 2014 event attracted 1,700 industry producer personnel, representing 140 wood products companies and hundreds of lumber, veneer/plywood and engineered wood products mill operations. The event also attracts an international audience, with 22 countries represented in 2014. In addition, 1,000 exhibitor personnel were on hand.

Registration options remain the same as they were in 2014, meaning the event is free for those who register on-line. Registration at the show will be $20. The other on-line options include registration along with a beer & brat ticket for $15; registration for the Lumber Manufacturing Workshop on Thursday September 29 for $75 (which includes the exhibit floor pass and a beer and brat ticket); and registration for the Veneer-Based Manufacturing Workshop on Wednesday September 28 for $75 (again including the exhibit floor pass and a beer and brat ticket).

The event is moving into Hall E, which is a third larger than Hall D, where the event was held in 2014 on the Expo Grounds. The additional space has allowed the show to increase the size of its Beer Garden to allow for more seated area. Also, the event has added German and Italian pavilions, featuring machinery manufacturers from those countries.

TP&EE Names Speakers For Veneer & Plywood, Engineered Lumber Workshop


The Timber Processing & Energy Expo will include a day-long workshop on Veneer & Plywood Manufacturing and Engineered Lumber to be held the first day of the expo, Wednesday, October 15, in the meeting rooms above the expo floor at the Portland Exposition Center in Portland, Ore.

TP&EE will be held October 15-17. More than 160 exhibitors have filled the Hall D venue at the Expo Center for the event, which will cater to primary producers of veneer, plywood, engineered wood products, lumber and wood energy.

The workshop kicks off with a speech by Republican House Representative Dennis Richardson, who is a candidate for governor of Oregon, running on a platform for business improvements and the creation of jobs. Richardson is a retired lawyer, business owner and Vietnam War veteran pilot from Central Point, Ore. He is serving his sixth term in the Oregon House of Representatives.

“My goal is to benefit the entire state in a way that will restore the pioneer legacy for our children and grandchildren—a legacy of good jobs for Oregon workers…and an effective, rational policy for efficiently managing our natural and human resources with respect for our quality of life and the environment,” Richardson says.

Richardson is opposing incumbent Democratic Governor John Kitzhaber.

Richardson’s opening talk is entitled, “Critical Issues for the Northwest Forest Products Industry.”

The Wednesday workshop includes presentations on a range of manufacturing processes, as well as an afternoon panel session on cross laminated timber.

Among the speakers are Dick Baldwin, operating partner with New Wood Resources and Atlas Holdings; Scott Weatherford, president of ATCO Wood Products.

The CLT discussion includes presentations from representatives of Weinig and MINDA.

Other presentations will address Turnkey Plywood Plant Technology; Veneer Grading; Veneer Drying; and Lathe Scanning Technology.

And end-of-day panel discussion will address “Meeting Customer Needs,” and include Chris Seymour, Region Manager-Western Oregon Region, Boise Cascade, as moderator.

On the second day of the expo, Thursday, October 16, the Lumber Manufacturing Workshop will be held. A fee of $75 includes access to both workshops, as well as admission for three days to the expo floor, and a free “beer and brat” ticket.
