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!
