We will also focus on sustainability and the role of wood as an attractive and environmentally friendly material for consideration by any actor in the building sector, from the perspective of the user to professionals like architects, engineers, producers and construction companies.

Recycling, re-use and optimal utilization of materials are coming important topics and will be properly discussed.
