The aim of the event, to be held at the Stadium on 22nd November, is to raise awareness of the use of timber in construction and to highlight its potential contribution to the Welsh economy and its sustainable credentials.

Currently, around 40% of UK demand for timber is met from the domestic market.

I n addition to a number of companies from the timber construction industry in Wales that will be exhibiting their products and services, there will also be a trade delegation from Latvia present.

Leading industry experts will be speaking at the event, including Andrew Carpenter, Chief Executive, UK Timber Frame Association (UKTFA) and Phil Roberts, Chair, Wood Knowledge Wales.

Organised by the Welsh Government ’s Construction Sector, Business Minister Edwina Hart said:

"This is a great opportunity for companies to highlight the benefits of timber in the construction of buildings. We need to think more innovatively about how we use our resources into the future and the sustainable credentials of timber are excellent.

"The Welsh Government is committed to doing all it can to promote the use of timber in construction, and to promote trade links with other count ries. I urge interested companies to attend this business event as it offers an excellent opportunity to showcase what Wales has to offer, and is an important networking opportunity with other companies and potential clients ."
