International Hardwood Conference 2017  from 15 to 17 November in Venice

After the success of the last edition, the International Hardwood Conference 2017 will be organized from 15 to 17 November in Venice, one of the most fascinating cities in the world.

The International Hardwood Conference, which is jointly co-organized by the European Timber Trade Federation (ETTF) and the European Organization of the Sawmill Industry (EOS), is the only international event which provides a global and exclusive vision of the production and trade of hardwood lumber; the Conference attracts the industry's most significant key stakeholders, thus providing a unique opportunity to network with a vast and high-level audience.

A large attendance of delegates from over 20 countries - representing businesses, NGOs, industry media and the most important international associations - is expected to participate in the Conference.

On November 16, 2017, in the charming venue of the Molino Stucky Hilton Venice, several qualified speakers will provide in-depth analyses of the most relevant international trends in the hardwood sector. The Conference will be divided into two sessions: the first one will zoom in on sector figures, analyzing the market in detail, while the second one will give suggestions and food for thought to entrepreneurs who are confronted with the issues of sustainability, legality, technology and innovation.

Courtesy of this outstanding programme, Venice will become for some days the capital of wood, emphasizing the strong connection between the city and this precious material.
