Under the terms of the partnership TDUK will be offering limited-edition VIP Tickets (free for TDUK members) to the event, taking place from May 28-30 in Nantes, France.

These VIP Tickets allow members to benefit from special networking opportunities, access to the VIP/Press Lounge with free coffee and soft drinks, and an invitation to the closing Gala Drinks Networking event.

“Europe is the UK’s main source of supply for all timber products and Carrefour attracts the widest range of companies covering all product bases,” said TDUK CEO David Hopkins, said:

“TDUK acts as a window into the UK market for overseas suppliers, so we are looking forward to the networking opportunities this brings to both sides. These relationships are crucial, and we look forward to seeing many members there.”

Mr Hopkins will be a key speaker at the Carrefour International du Bois session “Timber Architecture and Global Trends” on May 29 alongside speakers from across France.

During the session he will outline the UK Government’s “Timber in Construction Roadmap” as well as a new publication from TDUK, Timber Policy, a comparative study of policies across Europe which aim to encourage a greater use of timber in construction.

TDUK Members can apply for these limited-edition VIP Tickets at CARREFOUR.
