ISC: 67th International Softwood Conference 2019


ISC: 67th International Softwood Conference 2019

Antwerp, on the crossroads of international trade and a major harbour for wood and wood products, will be the host city of the 2019 International Softwood Conference from 16 to 18 October.

Organised by the European Organisation of the Sawmill Industry, EOS, the European Timber Trade Federation, ETTF, and the softwood import section of Fedustria, the Belgian federation of the Textile, Wood and Furniture Industries, the conference will gather representatives of leading softwood producing and importing companies for two days of inspiring presentations and contacts.

In addition to the “technical” meetings, participants will be able to get to learn Antwerp better with a welcome reception and official conference dinner at famous landmarks such as the MAS (Museum aan de Stroom) and the Antwerp Zoo. All meetings will be held at the Radisson Blu Astrid Hotel.
