The 5th China International Wood & Wood Products Trade Conference will offer an invaluable forum for a cross-section of the international timber trade, according to organisers.

Held November 13-15 in Guangzhou, China, the event will include representatives from log, panel, board, lumber, furniture, flooring, stairs and cabinet firms.

It will include a summit on trade policy and domestic and worldwide markets, as well organised negotiation sessions for securing business.

The show itself is 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 will also be able to partake in factory visits in the Guangzhou area.
