70th edition of the International Softwood Conference
On 13 October 2022 the 70th edition of the International Softwood Conference will be hosted in the lively Copenhagen. The Danish Timber Trade Federation, together with the European Organisation of the Sawmill Industry (EOS) and the European Timber Federation (ETTF), invites you to save the date for one of the most awaited events of the year in the #wood world.
This unique conference will offer the opportunity to deeply scrutinize trends in the #timber market focusing on facts and figures showing softwood production as well as consumption in the most relevant #countries. The pandemic has profoundly changed the behavior of consumers, which in turn had a strong impact on the business of timber traders and sawmillers. Speakers will try to gauge what the future will hold as the sawmillers and timber traders are navigating the new normal. The legislative measures connected to the fight with #climatechange and the effects that this might have on wood availability will also be part of the programme.
Due to the still uncertain sanitary situation and given the success of last year’s format, the conference will be held once again in a hybrid format. While this will give the possibility to attend the conference online to people who cannot travel, the organizers’ wish is to host as many physical participants as possible. As it is customary, the conference will be anticipated by a cocktail reception in the early evening on October 12, then the conference will officially start the following morning at the Copenhagen Marriott Hotel and will be followed, as usual, by a gala dinner in a fascinating venue. The organizers are also planning some extra programs such as visits to sites of interest to the industry.
More information will follow in the coming months.
