Fifteen presentations make up the Lumber Manufacturing Workshop, which will be held Thursday, September 29, during the Timber Processing & Energy Expo at the Portland Exposition Center in Portland, Ore. TP&EE will be held September 28-30.

TP&EE is produced by Hatton-Brown Expositions, LLC, an affiliate of Timber Processing and Panel World magazines. This will be the third TP&EE.

“There’s a great range of topics in this workshop,” comments Rich Donnell, Show Director. “We’ll basically have two meeting rooms going on simultaneously with presentations during the morning and afternoon. You can’t beat what you’ll get for the cost.”

Cost of the Lumber Manufacturing Workshop is only $75, which includes access to any of the presentations, a three-day pass to the expo exhibits, and a beer and brat ticket for the expo Beer Garden.
