The main theme for the IFBC2020 is:

“New Forest Business Frontiers”

A greater demand for energy, volatility in the fossil fuel markets and increasing material resource scarcity are considered as the most significant sustainability megaforces shaping European and global wood industry markets over next 15 years. Together with unstable consumer demand, uncertain policies and indifference among regulators, forest and wood industry have never experienced such significant barriers to advancing sustainability and profitability.


The goal of the International Forest Business Conference 2020 is to focus on megatrends that shape forest and wood industry sectors, highlight the transformation of forest related businesses towards a low-carbon bioeconomy, discuss tensions between sustainability and cost competitiveness, and call attention to new green innovations.


Networking opportunities will be in abundance, and the conference will offer a unique opportunity to meet CEOs and senior management of the most influential companies in the forest business industry.

Attend this conference for in-depth discussions and analysis on forest products market challenges, opportunities, threats and issues for 2020 and beyond.
