About the Show
Lancaster County, Pennsylvania is famously known as the home to numerous woodworking businesses, from very small artisan shops to some of the largest companies in the industry. On October 17-18, woodworkers from Lancaster County and beyond will descend upon the Warehouse at the Nook for the 3rd edition of Wood Pro Expo Lancaster.
Wood Pro Expo is a regional event for woodworking businesses that brings together suppliers and experts for a localized presentation of equipment and supply solutions. WPE includes a strong educational program on best practices for shop production - including CNC basics, employee recruitment, finishing, lean manufacturing, business management, software, and shop safety - and an expo floor with equipment and supplies geared to small and medium-size shops.
