Raising the bar for deck building professionals.

DeckExpo is the once-a-year national trade show, educational conference and networking opportunity for the deck and railing industry. The vibrant show floor features top products, installation clinics and exhibitor-led product presentations. The conference kicks-off with Business Skills Boot Camps and rounds out with business-building seminars. Forge new relationships with product manufacturers and fellow contractors. Official sponsors of DeckExpo are North American Deck & Railing Association (NADRA) and Professional Deck Builder Magazine.

DeckExpo is the only trade event focusing exclusively on the deck, porch and railing industry. Launched in 2003 and purchased by Hanley Wood in 2006, DeckExpo has experienced steady growth in exhibitors, attendees and media exposure.  Builders and carpenters from all over the U.S., and even across the globe, come to the event to see the latest technologies and newest products geared specifically to the special building requirements of decks, docks and porches.  Since the 2009 event, Hanley Wood Exhibitions has co-located DeckExpo with Remodeling Show. With outside additions and alterations accompanying many remodeling projects in the US, pairing these two events was a natural fit. 


Reaching the right audience is key to any marketing plan. DeckExpo provides unrivaled face-to-face access to the top deck building industry professionals.  No other national platform comes close to reaching the number of trend-setting deckbuilders that we do.  Contractors who attend Deck Expo are serious and engaged in this business. They are the people who decide which products are used to build America’s decks. If you want to get in front of these industry leaders, DeckExpo is where you want to be.
