The Northeastern Forest Products Equipment Expositions, otherwise known as the Loggers’ Expos, are the premier forest products industry trade shows in the Northeastern US. The Loggers’ Expo alternates between Bangor, Maine in odd years and Essex Junction, Vermont in even years. In addition, the Loggers’ Expo has been recently held in Hamburg, New York; Watkins Glen, New York; Springfield, Massachusetts; and Syracuse, New York.
The Loggers’ Expo typically features up to 250 exhibiting companies and attracts a range of 5,500 to 7,000 attendees - comprised mainly of active industry decision-makers. The Loggers’ Expo has become the place where serious business is accomplished between buyers and sellers of forest industry equipment, supplies and services. The Loggers’ Expo features a mix of live demonstrations and static displays - with both inside and outside displays.
The Bangor Expo is returning to Bass Park, but into the brand new Cross Insurance Center Arena and Ballroom. The 2015 Expo features new exhibit space around the Cross Insurance Center, with a familiar layout of the parking area where the outside component of the Expo has traditionally been set up. The Arena and Ballroom inside exhibit areas are all new and improved exhibit spaces.
