TPEEbkgd copy

Organizers of the Timber Processing & Energy Expo announce that registration is now open online for the event to be held this October 15-17 at the Portland Exposition Center in Portland, Oregon. Hatton-Brown Expositions, LLC, an affiliate of Timber Processing, Panel World and Wood Bioenergy magazines, is conducting the event, which is held just off Interstate 5 between downtown Portland and Vancouver, Wash.

Held every other year, TP&EE hosted 162 exhibitor companies and their representatives, and more than 1,000 attendees from 115 forest products producing companies and 200 specific mill site operations in 2012. Visitors came from 30 U.S. states, five Canadian provinces and several overseas countries. The event caters to primary producers of lumber, panels and engineered wood products, as well as wood heating and energy operations.

Once again, the event will also include a Workshop Day, during which in 2012 more than 200 people participated in any of the 16 seminars that covered technologies in wood products production.

The 2012 TP&EE was the first Portland event to be hosted by Hatton-Brown and its affiliate publications. “Optimism was just coming back to the industry in 2012, and we expect even greater enthusiasm at our event this October,” says Rich Donnell, show director and editor-in-chief of Hatton-Brown Publishers, Inc. “If our recent capital expenditure surveys of wood products operations are accurate, there are a lot of projects and upgrades still in the works.”

Three extremely reasonable online registration options exist:

• A free 3-day pass to the exhibit hall
• A $15 pass for the 3 days that also includes a “beer and a brat” ticket
• A $75 charge for the workshop day on October 16, which includes entry to any of the presentations as well as entry for three days to the exhibit hall, and a “beer and brat” ticket

New Portland Event Picks Up The Pace

Organizers of the new Timber Processing & Energy Expo report that the event booth space is 60% sold out as of March 1. TP&EE will be held October 17-19 at the Portland Exposition Center in Portland, Ore.

Hatton-Brown Publishers, Inc. is affiliated with Hatton-Brown Expositions, the show producer. Hatton-Brown publishes several wood products industries magazines, including Timber Processing, Wood Bioenergy, Timber Harvesting and Southern Loggin’ Times. It is also affiliated with Panel World magazine.“We’re still seven months away,” comments event Co-Chairman Rich Donnell, who is also the Editor-in-Chief at Hatton-Brown Publishers, Inc. “The show is almost selling itself, which indicates to me that companies are anxious to experience a new venue in the Northwest.”

The Portland Expo Center is conveniently located off Interstate 5 between downtown Portland and Vancouver, Washington. It’s only minutes from the Portland International Airport and has immediate access to the Max Light Rail.

TP&EE is scheduled for Hall D, which encompasses 72,000 sq. ft., more than half of which will be sold as booth space, along with an abundance of outdoor space. The overall Exposition Center sits on 60 acres and includes five halls with 330,000 sq. ft. The facility hosts more than 100 events annually, attracting in excess of 500,000 attendees.

Machinery and supplier exhibitors will cater to an attendee base of primary producers of lumber, veneer/plywood and engineered wood products as well as wood-to-energy producers.

The previous Portland show under a different ownership simply ran its course, Donnell says. “It was a great show for many, many years. But I believe the machinery community and the mill community are looking for a new event that is organized and operated by people who are hands-on with the wood products industry. In fact, people have been asking us for years to do this.”

Hatton-Brown Publishers, Inc. is no stranger to “show business.” It is affiliated with the biennial Panel & Engineered Lumber International Conference & Expo and Bioenergy Fuels & Products Conference & Expo held in Atlanta. It also conducts in-woods logging expos throughout the South.

“We’re making this event a little more cost reasonable for the exhibitors,” Donnell adds, though I believe what the exhibitors really want to see is an enthusiastic attendee base. We’re now beginning our promotion efforts to the wood products companies and personnel. Many of them had quit coming to the Portland show because they weren’t getting enough out of it.”

Donnell says the new location should be an attraction to attendees. “It’s very open, very accessible, plenty of on-site parking.”

Donnell adds that these same potential attendees are the readers of Timber Processing, Panel World and Wood Bioenergy magazines. “They know us. They know we’ll give this show 110% with them in mind.”
