The Great Lakes Timber Professionals Association (GLTPA) and Logging Congress Committee announced that the Lake States Logging Congress and Equipment Expo dates and time have changed for the 2013 show, to be held at The U.P. State Fairground in Escanaba, MI. The expo will now be held on September 6, 7, 2013, with show hours running from Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The Presidents Kickoff Event will continue to open the Logging Congress festivities on Thursday, September 5th.
“There are a few reasons the Logging Congress Committee decided to shift the dates and hours,” states Bruce “Sparky” Enstrom, Logging Congress Committee Chairman. “Most importantly, we listened to our customers, booth exhibitors and attendees, who said that a Friday-Saturday show works best for their busy schedules. It is also the most economical solution in terms of travel expenses for attendees and exhibitors alike. With the buzz already surrounding the 2013 show, anything to make it even better is a win-win situation.”
Over 200 indoor and outdoor exhibitors attend each year to showcase the best of the best when it comes to Log Splitters, Portable Sawmills, Compact Tractors & Logging Equipment, Implements, Chainsaw Carving, Wood/Pellet Stove Dealers and much, much more. The first Logging Congress occurred on November 1 & 2, 1945 in Houghton, Michigan, and in 1948 the Congress began the practice of adding different locations to encourage greater exposure and participation. Now it its 67th year, the Logging Congress events have been known to attract over 300 booth set-ups, 3,500 attendees daily, and cover 875,000 square feet.
