On 14 October 2021 the 69 th edition of the International Softwood Conference was held for the first time in a hybrid form, at the Clarion hotel in Helsinki and online. The Conference was hosted by Finnish Sawmills Association, which co-organized the event with the two usual partners: the European Organization of the Sawmill Industry (EOS) and the European Timber Trade Federation (ETTF).
Helsinki, 15 th October – After a successful online edition held last year, improvements in the sanitary situation allowed the organizers to hold a physical event in Helsinki. Given the ongoing pandemic, the Conference also took place online to reach as large an audience as possible. The event drew many participants as almost 200 people attended the Conference in Helsinki and about 100 followed it online.
