The Frame Building Expo took place January 18-20 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort in Nashville, Tennessee. Exhibitors and attendees alike showed up ready to network, connect, buy and sell. Everyone seemed to agree that it was a good turnout and that the show went well. 

Everything’s looking good at Hixwood! Their service and products are driving great growth for their business.

People were in good spirits; not only was business good, but lunches and goodies were delicious and plentiful.

There was excitement in the forms of contests, speakers, and an awards luncheon.

As anyone who has been to the Frame Building Expo in Nashville knows, it’s also a very nice venue with “Fantasy Land” right outside the trade show door!
