Published:  05 October, 2010

THE MIDLANDS: The timber industry is putting its cash behind TRADA'S Timber Expo. Over 200 delegates attended the launch event at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry and...

more than 20 companies booked or reserved stand space on the day.

The show, to be held on on the 27 and 28 September 2011, is backed by TRADA Technology – the timber research and development association.

TRADA Chief Executive Andrew Abbott said: "We have developed a commercial model to meet the needs of the post-recession construction industry, an industry which is value-driven and environmentally aware."

Timber Expo will present the widest and most comprehensive display of applications for timber within the built environment. Covering everything from timber frame, engineered wood and SIPs, to flooring, decking, wood protection and certification, visitors and exhibitors will be at the UK's only dedicated event for the timber industry.

As a timber showcase for construction and sustainable building design, the event will bring all of the complex supply-chain elements together, said Mr Abbott.

TRADA's successful In Touch with Timber conference will continue as part of the exhibition.
