The Northeastern Retail Lumber Association (NRLA) will celebrate its 125th anniversary at LBM Expo in Boston.

Scheduled for Feb. 6-8 at the Hynes Convention Center, 2019’s Expo is designed to help LBM professionals experience the future with hands-on demos and sneak peeks at the technology that will be disrupting the industry soon, the NRLA said.

Additionally, LBM Expo will unveil a new format to maximize the attendee experience on the show floor as well as educational opportunities.

“We are thrilled to bring the LBM Expo back to Boston for this historic event,” said Rita Ferris, president of the NRLA. “And while we will be honoring our past, we will also be focusing our sights on the future of the LBM industry.”

More than 3,000 attendees are expected with the show featuring over 200 exhibiting companies.

LBM Expo launches on Feb. 6 with an opening session by certified kitchen designer Eric Goranson, discussing how dealers and contractors use technology and social media to be the experts of information.

In addition to the exhibits and interactive in-booth demos, LBM Expo will have three demo zones educating attendees in a variety of topics from building best practices, and high-performance homes, to the future of LBM and construction.

On Thursday evening, the NRLA will celebrate its 125th Anniversary with a special evening, featuring a short documentary on the association, and a performance from former Tonight Show host, Jay Leno.
