Timber Expo back for 2017

The UK’s only event dedicated exclusively to Timber, Timber Expo has announced its return to Birmingham NEC from 10 – 12 October 2017.

Covering a wide range of timber applications, from timber frame through to plywood, CLT and timber cladding, the show will explore the latest developments across the industry as well as new products and innovations from around Europe, for all in the built environment.

This year, in a collaboration with TRADA, will see the Timber Focus Theatre introduce speakers who will explore how the industry is pushing the boundaries on the use of wood, wood for good health, technical timber an how designers are working directly with fabricators.

Students from the Emergent Technologies and Design Programme at the Architectural Association are also developing an innovative timber installation, co-ordinated by TRADA and sponsored by Hanson Plywood.

The show has introduced a series of free CPDs bringing together leading authorities to deliver advice and guidance on key issues including:

  • Up to date advise on fire prevention in all types of buildings
  • Changes to Legislation on Safety
  • Advice and guidance on construction product safety
  • Your responsibilities in the construction process and protecting you and your employees

Nathan Garnett, event director at Media 10, which runs the show, said: “In addition to showcasing the latest products and innovations across the timber sector, the Timber Expo will deliver the latest information on safety and quality in buildings for all in the built environment, from architects, contractors, local housing authorities, and developers. This is crucial in the current climate and only by coming together, through shared knowledge and learning, will we be able to tackle the issues surrounding building safety head on.”
