Northwestern Building Products Expo North & Expo South

NLA’s two annual conventions showcase informative learning opportunities, provide access to the latest LBM products & resources from a large variety of exhibitors, and offer numerous opportunities for networking. Attendees will discover innovative strategies and best practices to integrate into their businesses for year-long success, while building life-long relationships.

The NLA conventions are B2B events, not public home shows. They are designed for the lumber yard dealer (Attendee) and those who supply products & services to those dealers (Exhibitor).






2021 Expos & WI Leadership Conference Cancelled



NLA is saddened to announce the cancellation of the 2021 Expo North & South, as well as the Wisconsin Leadership Conference, originally scheduled for next January and February. 

With all the restrictions placed on large gatherings in effect now and for the foreseeable future, as well as concern for the health and safety of our staff, event attendees, and vendor partners, we felt this decision was the best for all involved.

We plan to offer new opportunities this winter, as well as spending a considerable amount of time and brainpower rebuilding our Expos and Leadership Conference to come back even stronger in 2022.
