Get Your Brand Out In Front at EXPO '23!

Year after year, the most successful exhibitors do more than simply reserve a booth and show up to the Forest Products Machinery & Equipment Exposition. Trade shows are a powerful opportunity to meet face-to-face with current and prospective customers, but driving buyers to end decision-makers to your booth requires thinking outside the box.

The variety of marketing and sponsorship opportunities available will help you create buzz and greater visibility for your products and services. And there’s something for every budget! Contact SFPA Communications Manager Christian Moises at [email protected] to secure your sponsorship today! 

The No. 1 onsite and post show resource for EXPO attendees with more than 3,000 readers, the show program features exhibit floor plans, exhibitor lists, seminar and workshop schedules, special events and more.

10 available for entire show - ONLY 6 LEFT

Want to be high-tech and showcase your brand on the big screen, maybe even include a quick video? Six of the 10 opportunities remain to showcase your company every two minutes and greet and connect with attendees via a 10-second display on video boards above each of the two exhibit hall entrances. Your two spots every two minutes will be seen a minimum of 400 times during the entire show!

Exhibiting is just one part of the strategy to get in front of new business (and nurture existing relationships). How else can you make your presence known and get in front of new customers?

Coffee! Yes, the fuel that gets everyone going in the morning. While other exhibitors may wait until later in the day to host their happy hours, dinners, and after-parties, take advantage of EXPO’s coffee sponsorship and help stand out among attendees while they’re fresh – and be the first thing they see for the day!

    1. One station for one day: $3,499
    2. Same station for three days: $9,699

*Stations can be positioned in or near your booth. Want to customize? Contact [email protected]
