Richmond Expo 2021
« on: May 01, 2021, 08:25:13 AM »
Apparently the Richmond Expo 2021 is a go for this year.   I got a message from Dan Shade about it and went digging and confirmed its a go.   This is only about an hour and 15 minutes from my place so as usual I will be attending.    

A quick look at the exhibitors maps as of 1 May, so far it looks like Baker is the only sawmill company registered.      I'm wondering if Woodmizer or any others are going to make it.    With Woodmizers backlog in orders and new management staff I wouldn't be surprised if they are a no show.    I hope I'm wrong.

Attendee registration is here:   Expo Richmond 2021 (prereg.net)

According to the Woodmizer website they won't be at any shows until August.

I had intended on going on Saturday, and I've never been before.  I didn't browse the vendor list.  If its that light, I might be reconsidering.  Its just shy of a 2hr ride for me.

Do vendors typically bring enough inventory for purchase on the spot or just for show?

If I'm going anyways, and I can save $ on shipping, it seems like a win win.

Yoders!  Now I'm hungry!

I'd say it depends on what you are seeking.  Some items might be available only after the show ends.  If they do not have to haul it back to their home base you could get a better deal.  Cash has an added incentive on some vendors.

Usually Husqvarna has specials on things like ppe and chains and such. Stihl doesnt seem very enthusiastic about selling stuff and just refer you to their dealers. All bets are off this year though. Just good to see shows are back on, even if they are somewhat limited.

Good on stihl for supporting the dealers.  I had hoped they would just wait til next year or late fall.  This event was critical for the funding of the organization and for the convention area.

Will be there Friday.  There is always something to learn and people to meet at these shows.
Go with an open mind.  Look at all the stuff possible and see how you can adapt it to make your own business more efficient.  One machine I bought 5 or 6 years ago cut employees needed from 4 to 1 and double production.  8 fold improvement.  You never know what you will see until you see it.

I'm on track to be there Friday.   Probably arrive around noon as I have to drop off some equipment on the way there.  I hope to meet up with the Cedarman crew and any other FF members that make it.     I'll even wear my Forestry Forum hat.    ;D

I was all set to go, but a few things have come up both Friday and Saturday.

Would like to be able to meet some FF members next year and hopefully COVID19 will be a distant memory and there will be more vendor participation.

There won't be one next year.  The Richmond Expo is every other year.

Just got back from Richmond.  As usual, always learn a lot.  Some new equipment. Saw a skid steer with forks and a buck saw for about 6 grand.For the forks, not the skid steer too. Oh, the possibilities for that thing.
Number of vendors were down, but quality of those there was good.  Great opportunity to hear what is really going on in the rest of the country.
Maybe 1 in 100 people wore a mask.  Was like Covid never existed, but plenty of hand sanitizer available. DR Buck and I got together and had a great time.  Even got to visit Texas Roadhouse Fri evening.
Learned why Tigercat bought up the biochar business.
Pallet people are price makers now rather than price takers as they have been for years.
Looks like I will have to go to the Paul Bunyon show as I missed one vendor that has some neat stuff that I somehow missed.

I'll bite...why did tigercat get into biochar, to be clear I did not know that they had.  I've looked at it; @Southside and I chatted about it briefly at some point.  I think it could be good for some folks but sort of surprised tigercat is there.
