April 04, 2023
EXPO Registration Opens

Registration and housing reservations for the 37th Forest Products Machinery & Equipment Exposition (EXPO 2023), presented by the Southern Forest Products Association, will open April 18, 2023 at sfpaexpo.com.

The three-day biannual tradeshow, to be held August 23-25, 2023, at the Music City Center in Nashville, will provide attendees with solutions for nearly every stage of manufacturing. From raw material handling to crane operations; metal detection and scanning technologies; log optimization, drying, grading, sorting, packaging, and distribution, there’s an exhibiting company representative on site to explore these solutions with you face to face.

Don’t delay making plans when EXPO registration opens April 18!

Since 1950, EXPO has provided the place for both hardwood and softwood sawmillers to gather, celebrate new technology, network, and learn about the industry’s latest products. EXPO 2023 will feature more than 50,000 square feet of exhibit space and 160 exhibiting companies, with a mix of longtime exhibitors and first-time companies representing their products and services.


It had been more than 10 years since EXPO visited a city other than Atlanta. Attendees and exhibitors spoke, and SFPA listened. After much research and surveying of exhibitors, attendees, the EXPO advisory council selected Nashville for several factors, but, most importantly, it’s positioned smack in the middle of the forest action.

The surrounding areas, including the Eastern U.S. hardwood community, represent 42% of all lumber manufactured in the United States. And in case you’re curious, Nashville is just a four-hour drive from more than half of the Southern Pine and hardwood sawmills in the South!

Nashville’s Music City Center, located in the middle of all the action, provides a modern business atmosphere in the new state-of-the-art facility surrounded by a thriving culinary, music, sports, and cultural scene, including the Country Music Hall of Fame, the historic Ryman Auditorium, and the always fun and famous honky tonks – all within walking distance!
