The Proof is Here

For 125 years, the National Hardwood Lumber Association has been “proving” our commitment to serving the hardwood lumber industry. As we celebrate our 125th anniversary this year, we’re inviting you to join us and the global hardwood industry in Louisville, KY October 4 – October 6 at the Omni Louisville Hotel.


Why Attend?

We’ll provide you with industry-specific education, dynamic speakers, hands-on educational demonstrations, companies exhibiting the latest tech, products, offerings for your hardwood business, networking events, and opportunities to meet new connections that span every sector of the hardwood lumber industry.

NHLA Convention Registration is NOW OPEN!

“We feel it’s important to exhibit at the NHLA Convention because we have a lot of customers who attend, and we can see them all in a short amount of time. We also display new products and get our message across in an efficient manner. We see all of our customers who are usually stuck in mills, and we get to establish that relationship face-to-face.”
