American Hardwood Export Council European Hardwood Conference: Driving change in European hardwood markets

20th - 21st October 2016

Copenhagen Marriott Hotel

Copenhagen WaterfrontThe American Hardwood Export Council is reviving its successful conference formula for an event on 20th & 21st October 2016 in Copenhagen at the Marriott Hotel. AHEC will be bringing together leaders from the US hardwood industry and major buyers from European markets to discuss and debate the challenges and opportunities both industries face, by addressing current issues and future developments.

Under the theme “Driving change in European hardwood markets” the conference will focus on; new market opportunities for hardwood, the issues that drive change and, how effective marketing and promotion can deliver results.

As traditional markets and uses of hardwood in Europe shrinks, there are new opportunities to position this valuable material as a high performance, sustainable solution within the built environment. By taking up these challenges, hardwood industries can win back market share from non-wood materials. As always these discussions will take place with a line-up of expert speakers and there will be plenty of opportunity for participation and networking.

We welcome American exporters, European importers and American hardwood agents, as well as large manufacturers who also import. Online registration is now open and will close on Friday 7th October 2016.

There is no attendance fee for the AHEC European Conference for Europeans and AHEC members. A registration fee of $400 will apply to US based non-member companies and their staff. Extra guest tickets for the Gala Dinner only are available for €80. AHEC will invoice you directly for the extra Gala Dinner tickets.
