Organizers of the Timber Processing & Energy Expo announce a money giveaway contest geared to southern pine sawmills. “We recognize it’s not always convenient to fly across the country to a trade show, so we’re providing a little incentive,” comments Rich Donnell, director of TP&EE.
TP&EE will be held October 17-19 at the Portland Expo Center in Portland, Ore. It’s produced by Hatton-Brown Expositions LLC and hosted by Timber Processing and Panel World magazines.
TP&EE will give away $3,000 to the one southern pine sawmill that registers and sends the most employees to the show. “We’re talking about number of personnel from a single sawmill site,” Donnell explains. “This way the contest is fair to those companies that only operate a single mill as compared to companies that may operate multiple mills.”
All the mill and their personnel have to do is go to the show web site and register as normal, and the show will know which mill they’re coming from by noting the company name and location of the registrant. Or somebody from the mill can contact a show representative and give them the names of the personnel from the mill and the representative will get them registered.
“On Friday morning, the last morning of the show, we will announce the winning southern pine mill,” Donnell says. “And remember, the company’s people have to actually attend at least one day of the show.”
