This business fair is organized every two years in Nantes (France) by professionals for professionals. Sawmills, panels, parquet flooring, specialized retailers, wood construction solutions... and major players in forest management will be present. The 2022 edition, in which FSC had already participated with a booth, brought together more than 600 exhibitors from 40 different countries and from all wood-based sectors and 14 000 visitors (+20% in comparison with 2018).

It’s a place to exchange information about the market, the latest tendencies, new products, etc, through 4 thematic halls, as well as conferences, pitches and other activities.

As more and more players in the construction and timber sector adopt a more responsible sourcing approach, FSC is taking the opportunity to participate in this major event to increase the visibility of FSC certification among these industries, and the understanding of its benefits.

FSC will be represented by teams from FSC France, FSC Netherlands, FSC Africa and FSC International, who will be happy to meet with interested parties, present the advantages of the certification to French, European and international players, its value to the construction sector and answer any questions.

The diverse profiles of the FSC teams will enable you to discuss a wide range of subjects such as: traceability, the new EUDR regulation, ecosystem services, timber species, etc.
