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.

2016 TP&EE Organizers Face Good Problem


It’s a sell-out! Well, sort of, as organizers of the third Timber Processing & Energy Expo (TP&EE) are still considering whether to add exhibitor space for the event to be held September 28-30 at the Portland Exposition Center in Portland, Ore.

Nearly 190 exhibitors have purchased all of the available space, 56,000 sq. ft., in the primary exhibit Hall E. Show organizers report that an exhibitor waiting list is growing and they’re considering additional space options connected to Hall E.

“It’s a tough call, and a lot of logistics and quality considerations go into adding space, so you have to tread carefully,” comments Show Director Rich Donnell. “We have several options to choose from, if we go in that direction. At the same time, you don’t like to turn exhibitors away.”

TP&EE moved from Hall D on the Expo Grounds in 2014 to the larger Hall E for this year’s event. Donnell said the amount of exhibit space sold inside compared to the 2014 event is up about 17,000 sq. ft. “In 2014, which was a sell-out in Hall D, we had several exhibitors outside in the front lot, and we’ve been able to move them inside into Hall E,” Donnell explains. “And we had exhibits in a connector room between Hall D and E in 2014, and they’ve gotten onto the main floor this time.

“We’ll figure out the exhibitor space situation,” he adds. “In the meantime we’re turning our attention to building attendance.”
