The 5th International Wood & Wood Products Trade Conference offered an invaluable forum for a cross section of the international timber trade according to organisers.
Held November 13-15 in Guangzhou, China the event included representatives from log, panel, board, lumber, furniture, flooring, stairs and cabinet firms.
A summit on trade policy and domestic and worldwide markets took place as well as organised negotiation sessions for securing business.
The show itself was split into four distinct areas, including raw and processed materials, board, woodworking and Forest Stewardship Council products, as well as an international certified products area to allow Chinese wood producers to establish distribution channels for certified materials.
Visitors were also able to partake in factory visits in the Guangzhou area.
