TRADA paves the way for In Touch with Timber

Published:  23 October, 2009

HIGH WYCOMBE: TRADA is in discussion with top-level speakers for the 2010 In Touch with Timber event, to take place on 18 May, at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London.

This annual conference is aimed at architects, engineers, specifiers and other construction industry professionals. It demonstrates design and innovation in timber and wood products and to showcase inspiring examples of structures using timber to advantage.

Details of the programme will be released by the end of the year.

All delegates will attend the morning sessions and TRADA is undertaking market research to identify topics for the more in-depth technical seminars in the afternoon, to ensure that delegates can pursue their specific interests – a formula which has worked well in the past. There will be opportunities for networking during breaks.

A key feature of In Touch with Timber is the exhibition of timber products which runs throughout the day.
