Wood Pro Expo Lancaster has sold all its exhibit space. Show planners have setup a waiting list, as additional regional wood industry suppliers hope to squeeze into the October 19 - 20 event in Pennsylvania.

"It's a spectacular kick-off for the Lancaster show," said Tim Fixmer, CEO of Woodworking Network, the producers of the show. "We are working through the floor plan to see if we can make more space available."

"We have room for attendees at the educational program," said Carroll Henning, marketing manager for Wood Pro Expo. "We have eight sessions over the two days covering everything from lean management to finishing to panel fabrication." All show registrants receive free admission to daily keynote sessions, kicking off October 19 with the opening keynote by FDMC magazine editor Will Sampson. 

The exhibitor list now includes 41 companies, though some additions may be added if planners find a way to expand in the final weeks.
