MAIN SECTORAL EVENT IN THE SOUTHEAST EUROPE AND IN THE MEDITERRANEAN COUNTRIES
Adriatic Wood Days is one of the leading international conferences on forest-based industries and accompanying EU policies, bringing together more than 200 participants from across Europe each year, with the main goal of finding new models for further development of the sector and highlighting the environmental and socio-economic potential of wood processing, especially in rural areas.
In Rovinj, leading experts from the economy, science, politics and the media will spend two days analyzing the situation in these sectors and looking for optimal solutions to improve opportunities. Important sectoral topics such as biomass, wood trade, certification, furniture production, forest protection and many others will be discussed. Participants will gain insight into market trends and trends in related sub-sectors. AWD is also a great opportunity to exchange opinions, useful ideas, but also to connect.
Likewise, AWD provides insight into the existing technological equipment of the sector and provides an opportunity for suppliers of technologies and services to present innovative solutions that will increase the competitiveness of the sector.
AWD wants to highlight the ecological and socio-economic potential of wood processing, which is becoming increasingly important in Europe as wood is processed in rural areas, saving millions of jobs. For this reason, forestry and wood processing are increasingly perceived as a complete, unique and integrated sector of great potential. In addition, the conference aims to encourage greater cooperation in the field of technological innovation, but also to promote neighborly and regional cooperation.
The overall character of the conference and participants is highly international, and in recent years, in addition to participants from Croatia and Southeast Europe, many participants arrived from other EU countries, as well as US, Russia, India, China and other.
AWD is the largest and most comprehensive sectoral event in this part of Europe, and participants will adopt conclusions and propose recommendations to sectoral policy makers at national, regional as well as European and global levels.
AWD provides sector companies, their owners and managers with insight into market trends and the display of trends in related subsectors.
