The ‘Timber Forum’ has been conceived as a knowledge-sharing platform for suppliers (timber councils, importers/ exporters), end-users, furniture makers, real estate construction companies, etc.) and influencers (architects, interior designers, project consultants, etc.). Organized by WoodNews magazine, the programme is one of the highlights of DelhiWood 2019.

The ‘Timber Forum’, whose theme this year is ‘Versatility of Timber’, is being publicized and promoted as a high engagement program for the industry to disseminate information on timber usage, versatility, technicality and sustainability. Stakeholders who visit the exhibition are from all of India’s woodworking hubs and from those of neighbouring countries that include Southeast Asia and South Asia.

The Aims of the forum include:

  • Description of various timber species from around the world and its use for various purposes.
  • Availability of timber, sustainability of sources & logistics of buying.
  • Traditional and innovative applications in furniture, construction & interiors.
  • Suitability & adaptability of foreign species of hardwoods and softwoods.
  • Understanding the Indian market especially pricing, trends, demand and potential.
  • Helping timber suppliers connect and engage with end users & influencers.

The Keynote Speaker, while addressing the audience comprising furniture manufacturers, architects, interior designers and representatives of construction companies, will share knowledge and industry trends, which will enhance the stakeholders’ understanding of wood and its versatility in different segments.

A panel of experts from the fields of architecture, design, construction, manufacturing and wood science will make presentations, which will be followed by panel discussions on ‘Challenges & Solutions in Woodworking’, with Q&A’s from the audience. There will, subsequently, also be one-on-one meetings between suppliers and consumers.

After the huge success of the Timber Forum at IndiaWood 2018 and the big takeaways for the audience in that program, the forthcoming event will be an ongoing engagement for all stakeholders of the woodworking and construction industry.
