The UK Wood Panels Conference 2018

The UK Wood Panels Conference 2018: Adding Value Through Innovation & Fire Safety

Wood based panel products are some of the fastest growing product sectors in the timber supply chain. Versatile, decorative and easy to use, they have become increasingly popular with merchants, builders, designers and architects.

This half day conference aims to examine the state of the market in the UK – the world’s fourth biggest import market for wood-based panels – and its prospects for growth. In particular, it will be looking at the innovative ways manufacturers and traders are designing products to meet specific market needs, adding value and ensuring quality at all steps of the supply chain.

This is a “must attend” event for all those involved in the global wood-panels sector. It offers a great networking opportunity for producers, agents, importers and traders alike.
