Richmond, VA–Richmond Raceway Complex was the recent site for the biennial two-day Expo Richmond 2021/37th East Coast Sawmill and Logging Equipment Exposition.
For more than five decades, Expo Richmond has provided the forest products industry the opportunity to maintain efficient and cost effective operations through the event’s exhibits and networking. The exposition offers the year’s largest collection of sawmilling, kiln drying, harvesting, biomass, trucking, pallet manufacturing/recycling, optimization/scanning, material handling, firewood production and related equipment, supplies and services.
The first Expo was held in 1960 in Crozet, VA. It relocated around the Commonwealth to Petersburg, VA, then to the Richmond Arena before finally moving to its current home at the Richmond Raceway Complex.
Through the years, tens of thousands of forest industry personnel have visited the Expo site. Visitors from every state in the U.S. and many foreign countries are welcome to see the latest innovations on display at the Expo.
The exposition is co-sponsored by the Virginia Forest Products Association and the Cooperative Extension Service at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.
