Members are also invited to attend the Timber Industry Summit.

The summit will feature the unveiling of exciting new research on the future of the timber industry and the aim is to stimulate debate that will help identify key steps to securing a positive future for the sector.  Research has focussed on the key challenges facing the timber industry, how other sectors are rising to these challenges and lessons that we can learn as a timber sector.  The panel features leading names from the specifier, building and timber sector.

This summit is the first project of the Timber Industry Accord.  The Accord has been signed by the leading timber industry trade bodies and is aimed at bring together some much needed joined up thinking in the timber sector.    The event will take place 2 - 5pm, Monday 24th September 2012 at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry Ricoh Arena, Coventry.  To book your place (spaces are now severely limited) please visit: http://www.timber-expo.co.uk/summit-registration
