Established in 1993 and sponsored by EWTA, Info Fair is the premier supplier exhibition for companies wishing to connect with North America’s leading engineered product manufacturers. It is held in conjunction with APA’s annual meeting and therefore provides a direct and close-range connection with key decision makers from APA’s member companies, including owners, principals, CEOs, sales and marketing executives, and other senior managers.
Unlike other shows where exhibitors are chained to their booths during the entire length of the exposition, Info Fair is open at various strategic times during the three-day annual meeting, providing exhibitors ample opportunity to participate in the numerous other networking and information transfer opportunities featured during the convention.
Exhibitors also can elevate their exposure and broaden their reach to prospective customers through sponsorship of various meeting events and activities. Several sponsorship categories are available. And Info Fair exhibitors receive free company descriptions in the annual meeting issue of EWTA’s Engineered Wood Journal.

The APA annual meeting and Info Fair supplier exhibition will return this year to the popular Ritz-Carlton on Amelia Island, Fla., where the event was last held in 2009. Located approximately 30 minutes from Jacksonville International Airport, Amelia Island is the southernmost of the Sea Islands, a chain of barrier islands along the U.S. eastern seaboard.
Complete meeting information and registration materials were e-mailed to APA and EWTA members in July. Please contact Kim Sivertsen if you have any questions.
