Meet Safe in Atlanta

EXPO 2021 is looking forward to welcoming our attendees and exhibitors back to Atlanta. EXPO we will be one of the first in forest products industry events in 2021 to help lead the way of offering face-to-face networking and learning experiences.

As we prepare for an in-person Forest Products Machinery & Equipment Exposition, August 11 - 13, the health, safety and security of our community continues to be our top priority. Our team is working closely with local Atlanta authorities, including the Georgia World Congress Center and related hotel partners, as they develop new best practices and implement their re-opening plans. We are monitoring the situation and will ensure our plans follow the recommendations of public health experts and the standards set-forth by the CDC and federal, state and local governments.

EXPO is committed to creating an event experience where our participants can safely and effectively come together. The Georgia World Congress Center has implemented a program of stringent processes for cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention under its GBAC STAR™ facility accreditation.

We want to ensure EXPO continues to help you make the connections you need to boost your business and build your brand. As such, we will continue to update this COVID-19 FAQ page to keep you up to date on the latest plans for the show.
