On 8 October 2020 the 68th edition of the International Softwood Conference was held for the first time ever online. Not even the Covid-19 pandemic could stop producers and traders of softwood lumber from organizing their annual gathering. The Conference was as usual organized by the European Organization of the Sawmill Industries (EOS) and the European Timber Trade Federation (ETTF).
While the appeal of a physical International Softwood Conference remains unaltered, participants of the first-ever online International Softwood Conference which took place on October 8 were not disappointed: as usual, the presentations were first-class and attendees could draw many useful insights from them. The remit of this year’s presenters was particularly challenging as the goal of the organizers was to provide a forward-looking event which anticipates what the short- and long-term consequences of the Covid-19 outbreak would be on the softwood market – from the two angles of producers and traders.
