WBPI will be holding a virtual event on February 16, 2021 to look at how the international wood-based panels industry has adapted to the current pandemic and look at movements in furniture trends.

Beyond Covid-19: The global wood-based panels industry adapting for the future is designed to be a gathering point for industry leaders in the global panels industry.

Aimed at primary panel manufacturers, secondary processors, technology/equipment suppliers, the furniture design community and other stakeholders, the online event is being launched as part of WBPI’s new VirtualViews digital platform.

The half-day online conference will have a special focus on the furniture sector, share how various panels markets are performing, as well as how manufacturers are adjusting to the situation. It will also look at the products, technology, equipment and trends that could prove to be important as we move into new phases of the pandemic and beyond.

“With so many physical events having been cancelled due to the pandemic, it’s more important than ever to find new ways to connect,” said WBPI editor Stephen Powney.

Featuring presentations, an online networking lounge, discussion groups and Q&As, this first WBPI VirtualViews event will be a safe gathering point for the global panels trade to network together, receive updates and learn about the future direction of the industry.
