JLC LIVE Returns To the West Coast After 3 Year Hiatus-2011 Portland OR


November 2, 2010, Dallas, Texas – After a 3 year hiatus due to the economy, JLC LIVE Residential Construction Events will re-launch a second regional event on the west coast  in December 2011 after numerous surveys and one-on-one phone calls.  The Oregon Convention Center in downtown Portland, Oregon was selected as the venue for the second JLC LIVE event.  The Exhibit Hall will be open December 8-9, with the conference program beginning Wednesday, December 7.  JLC LIVE is owned and produced by Hanley Wood Exhibitions and officially presented by the Journal of Light Construction, Remodeling Magazine and Tools of the Trade Magazine.

When asked about the decision to re-launch an event on the west coast, Amy Allen, Show Director for JLC LIVE, Remodeling Show and DeckExpo explained “we came to the conclusion that the economy is moving in a better direction which offers our exhibitors the exposure they expect in return for their investment in time, effort and dollars spent. Conversely, bringing JLC LIVE to Portland provides attendees in the region enough top manufacturers and education making attending worth their time away from the jobsite,” stated Amy Allen, Show Director for JLC LIVE. 
“Although the show may have been on hold for the past few years, it was the right decision to preserve the show’s future,” continued Allen.  “We appreciate the patience of our sponsors, exhibitors, attendees and other partners during this hiatus.”
The event website is currently under construction and should be live in December 2010.  Booth space assignments for the 2011 Northwest event are scheduled for spring of 2011.  Manufacturers or distributors interested in participating should call 800.471.4204.  Incentives will be in place for those who wish to participate in both the 2011 Northwest event and the 2012 New England event.
