LANCASTER, Pa. – Felder Group will be front and center at Wood Pro Expo as it moves to its new venue in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Felder will be exhibiting at Booth 201 at the woodworking exhibition.

Felder makes sliding table panel saws, table saws, jointers, planers, shapers, combination machines, CNC machining centers, edgebanders, widebelt sanders and many other machines. Felder Group USA is based not far from the Wood Pro Expo site, in New Castle, Delaware. The company also has showrooms in Dallas, West Sacramento and Anaheim.

A month before opening, Wood Pro Expo Lancaster has sold all its exhibit space. Show planners set-up 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."

The Wood Pro Expo will be held October 19 - 20 at the Lancaster Host Expo and Conference Center. Floor registration is $20. A woodworking educational series of eight sessions are scheduled, covering business management and wood fabrication topics, including finishing and lean management. Individual sessions cost $45, and a two-day package provides admission to three sessions for $75. To register, see https://www.microspec.com/reg/wpe2017/index.htm

"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 over the next 30 days.
