The Southern Forest Products Assn. (SFPA) has announced the 38th Forest Products Machinery & Equipment EXPO will return to the Music City Center in Nashville from August 6-8, 2025.
“The move to Nashville in August 2023 exceeded all expectations, and we heard it over and over on the show floor and for weeks after the event from exhibitors and attendees alike,” says Eric Gee, SFPA Executive Director. “We’ve already had booth space requests, so we can’t wait to return to the Music City Center for our 38th edition.”
Since 1950, Forest Products EXPO has provided a place for both hardwood and softwood sawmillers to gather, network, and learn about the industry’s latest machinery, technology and equipment. The three-day tradeshow provides attendees with solutions for nearly every stage of wood product manufacturing. From raw material handling to crane operations; metal detection and scanning technologies; log optimization, drying, grading, sorting, packaging, and distribution.
“The SFPA team has already started securing hotel room blocks, and our EXPO Advisory Committee is discussing plans to make 2025 even better,” Gee adds. Exhibit space sales for the 38th Forest Products Machinery & Equipment EXPO are scheduled to open in May 2024.
Walter Jarck, whose career in the forest products industry spanned 65 years and ranged from logging machinery to engineered wood products, died January 3, surrounded by his children, in North Wilkesboro, NC. He was 92.
