Well done!

We are looking back on three successful days full of interesting presentations and in-depth discussions. Many thanks to our speakers, moderators, participants, all technicians and translators, the scientific committee, the organising committee and everyone who was responsible for the success of the 12th European Wood-based Panel Symposium, especially the teams from Fraunhofer WKI, EPF and iVTH as well as the sponsors who supported us.

We hope to see you again in Hamburg in October 2024!

The 13th European Wood-based Panel Symposium will take place from 9 to 11 October 2024. Save the date!



The conference program is available, here.

Since October 31, 2021 you are able to register in the event. We would like to inform you that we will be conducting the event according to the Corona rules for conferences in October 2022. Hywax (former Sasol Wax) will be holding their evening reception on October 13, 2022 as a 2G (recovered or vaccinated) event.

Ladies and gentlemen,

Would you like to find out more about the most important trends and current challenges in the wood-based panels industry? Are you looking for a forum where you as a manufacturer, supplier or user can exchange ideas and network in intensive discussions?

The expected more than 300 international participants will be able to discuss in detail with each other during the breaks and at the two evening events to which EPF, iVTH and other industrial companies as well as the company Hywax GmbH (former Sasol Wax) invite.

For all matters relating to the Symposium, or if you are interested in participating in the technical exhibition which will accompany the conference, please contact Heike Pichlmeier or Sarah Lippelt from the local organizing team in Braunschweig.

We look forward to your participation!


All exhibition stands are now allocated. The organizers would like to thank the companies for booking. They are making a great contribution to the success of the 12th European Wood-Based Panel Symposium.
