Exhibitors with a primary focus on the forest products industry and emerging biomass markets are invited to attend the 2021 show.

Why Exhibit

Pennsylvania is home to more than 2,700 forest products' companies and more than 500,000 forest landowners. The 2021 Timber Show will be be held June 4 & 5 at Penn State's Ag Progress Days site, 9 miles southwest of State College, PA. This central location offers exhibitors an affordable way to reach high-quality, industry-focused attendees. 

Approximately 100 vendors exhibit and focus on serving the needs of the forest products industry. The site offers affordable space rental rates, free electricity and forklift services. Although the Timber Show's primary attractions center around equipment services for the logging and sawmill industry, there are many more things for visitors to see and do at the show. Equipment related activities include grinder and chipper demos, skidder and forklift ride-and-drive areas, and a demo area for wheeled loaders. 

  • New for Timber 2021 will be a Career Fair designed to connect employers with job seekers to build and develop the industry's next generation of leaders. The forest products industry provides many exciting and fulfilling careers. This event will enable exhibitors to recruit new talent while providing job-seeking Timber Show visitors with access to many of the industry's top employers who are looking to fill vacant positions! With the continued interest among industry leaders to develop our workforce, it is hoped that this Career Fair will open doors for employers and job-seekers alike.
