The biennial show, sponsored by the Southern Forest Products Association, saw 244 exhibitors showcase a full range of forest products machinery, equipment and services.

“Many equipment transactions were completed on the show floor,” said EXPO director Eric Gee. “Despite the recent challenging market conditions our industry has endured, exhibitors recognised the importance of being at the show to maintain their customer relationships.”

The next EXPO will be held on June 11-13, 2009 in New Orleans.
