This is it... the new era of work has arrived.

Responsive manufacturing, exciting innovations and shifting demand are causing lumber industry professionals to seek out new equipment, products, and services, and EXPO 2023 is the place where the forest products industry comes together.

Make the most of this moment of opportunity – either as an attendee or an exhibitor – at the 2023 Forest Products Machinery & Equipment Exposition, the event trusted by the sawmilling industry since 1950.

Face-To-Face is Back

The forest products manufacturing community knows that EXPO is the place to get up close to the materials, resources, equipment, and technology they need now. That's why there's just less than 20 percent of the 50,000+ plus square feet of exhibit space still available to connect with the best professionals in the business.

  • Connect

    Build lasting relationships with the leading equipment providers in the industry. These companies aren’t attending to sell; they want to invest in a lasting connection.

  • Explore

    Learn from the finest machinery and technology companies on best practices and operational efficiencies. The companies at EXPO continually look for innovative methods to improve yields and ROI.

  • Discover

    A variety of new opportunities that can improve safety and decrease bottlenecks while enriching relationships with trusted partners.

A Noteworthy Change for 2023

EXPO 2023 will be held at the Music City Convention Center in downtown Nashville, Tennessee. Located in the middle of all the action, Music City Center is the perfect home base for a fun-filled visit to Nashville. Inside, the new, state-of-the-art convention center you'll experience a modern business atmosphere, and outside you'll find a thriving culinary, music, sports and cultural scene.

The Music City

Known for its trendy new restaurants and its eclectic music scene, Nashville is booming and the Music City Center is the new pulse of it all. A top-rated destination, downtown Nashville offers an authentic Music City experience. You are in walking distance of the Country Music Hall of Fame, the historic Ryman Auditorium, and the always fun and famous honky tonks, such as Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge.

Music City Center

The Music City Center is Nashville's convention center located in the heart of downtown. The 2.1 million square foot facility opened in 2013 and was built so that Nashville could host large, conventions in the downtown area – blocks away from entertainment, music, and dining.
