Two major Portland, Oregon-based wood products events that Search North America will be attending are...

THE INTERNATIONAL MASS TIMBER CONFERENCE, which is an annual event held this year on March 24th through the 26th. This conference centers around cross-laminated timbers (CLT’s), mass plywood panels, and glulam, which are innovative green alternatives to structural concrete and steel used in mid to high-rise buildings and bridges. Visit for more information. The International Mass Timber Conference is one of the largest gatherings of CLT and mass timber experts in the world. It hosts professionals from across the forest, manufacturing, design, development, and construction industries. Last year, over 1,600 experts from 30 countries attended.

THE TIMBER PROCESSING EXPO, which is a bi-annual event held this year on September 30th through October 2nd. This is a conference for decision makers in the lumber, plywood, engineered wood products, and wood-to-energy industries. Visit for more information. At the last expo, about 3,000 industry personnel attended. These attendees (from 40 U.S. states, six Canadian provinces, and 20 countries besides the U.S. and Canada) came to view 225 exhibiting companies on 60,000 square feet of booth space.

Since the staff of Search North America will be attending both of these conferences, if you are planning to attend either of these events we would like to meet with you.
