Running Machinery Demos bring tech to the forefront at Wood Pro & Closets Expos

The Running Machine Pavilion was expanded after its initial space allotment sold out in December.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – An expanded Running Machine Pavillion, featuring comprehensive demonstrations of woodworking technology, will be held during both days of Wood Pro Expo Florida and the Closets Expo, April 13-14 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.

The popular RMP demonstrations will be delivered by equipment companies exhibiting in the Running Machine Pavilion. The size of the pavilion’s footprint was increased in December after the original space allotment sold out.

The RMP provides a forum for woodworking professionals to see new technology in action, narrated by industry experts. These interactive sessions provide ample time for Q&A. The range of featured presentations includes nested-based production, edgebanding, panel sizing, and dust collection. 

The RMP sessions are scheduled, making it easy for attendees to determine which demonstrations they want to check out. All sessions are free to attend.
