Timber Expo relocates to the NEC

Published:  15 February, 2013

Timber Expo - the UK's national timber event - will be relocating to the NEC Birmingham in September 2013.

The event, which will be held on the 24 and 25 September 2013, will showcase an expanded range of timber technologies and wood products together with the widest display of new and innovative applications for timber within the built environment. It will feature an exhibition of over 165 companies together with the most comprehensive free seminar programme.

Loretta Sales, event director of Timber Expo said: ''Timber Expo moving to the NEC in 2013 is great news for everybody involved in the event and within the timber industry. The NEC is a fantastic venue and is the ideal location for the further expansion of the show. With excellent transport links via road, rail and the airport it will be even easier for our visitors and exhibitors to get here.

"In fact the airport being interconnected with the venue was a key element in choosing the NEC, as the vast majority of our key target regions for overseas exhibitors (Austria, Finland, Germany, Sweden) all have direct flights into Birmingham International. With the combination of excellent content, leading exhibitors and superb facilities at the NEC, this year's Timber Expo is set to be the best yet.''
