FEBRUARY 23, 24, 25, 2023
It’s time to plan for the 2023 Oregon Logging Conference. We have some exciting things for this years’ conference program and social events, that we think you will like. This year’s theme, “Green Trees Matter. Healthy Forests=Healthy Future” sets the stage for networking opportunities with industry professionals.
The exhibitor booklet link is listed above. In this booklet you will find valuable information pertaining to the conference schedule and exhibitor details. To reserve your booth space, please complete the exhibitor contract and mail to the OLC office as soon as possible. We will hold the Thursday and Friday evening Sawdust Bowl inside the Performance Hall located in the Convention Center. This will provide you an opportunity to socialize with your customers. Please note you will be required to have someone in your booth during the hours of the Sawdust Bowl from 4:30p.m.- 6:30pm. If you don’t want to be located in the same building as the Sawdust Bowl please indicate your preference on the exhibitor contract. We will do our best to accommodate your building and booth space request. Please note building and booth space is based on availability.
It is our goal to provide an educational experience for our members of the logging, construction and trucking industry to improve professionalism through certification. This year we have included seminars presented by our exhibitors. We will have ―Hands On seminars in the outside display area and additional seminars presented inside meeting rooms. (Please see program schedule for topics and times). We have worked out a schedule that will leave a maximum of free-time for your customers to visit the other exhibits as well.
The Oregon Logging Conference has long been known for its hospitality and social atmosphere. Your paid registration of $95 per person will include a hosted breakfast on Thursday and Friday mornings, the OLC Sawdust Bowl at the end of each day’s activities and access to the equipment show, and all program and seminar sessions.
We continue to work to make the OLC better each year. You will see a change in our schedule; we are once again pleased to provide the venue for the Oregon Women in Timber “Kick Off“ dinner and auction. This will be held on Wednesday evening, February 22nd. Tickets can be purchased directly through OWIT call for details 503.831.1593. The evening will begin with the Talk About Trees, fundraiser silent auction, followed by dinner and the live auction.

Plan to attend this fun evening to help us celebrate the 85th OLC. The evening will begin at 7pm with Hosted Beer and Wine tasting, buffet dinner and dancing until midnight. Event will be held in the Playwrights Hall at the Graduate Eugene (formerly Eugene Hilton). Reserve your tickets on the OLC registration form.
