Irrespective of the current global COVID-19 pandemic, the organizers would like to inform you that the 12th European Wood-based Panel Symposium will take place as planned from 30th September to 2nd October 2020. We promise you interesting presentation topics, plenty of space for networking, and the customary pleasant atmosphere at the Grand Elysée Hotel Hamburg. 

We sincerely hope that all of us will remain healthy until then and we would be delighted to be able to welcome you to Hamburg at the end of September 2020.

We thank you for your loyalty concerning this event!

Ladies and gentlemen,

From 30th September to 2nd October 2020, the Fraunhofer WKI and the European Panel Federation, in co-operation with the International Association for Technical Issues related to Wood (iVTH) and SasolWax, are organizing for the twelfth time the European Wood-based Panel Symposium. For the third time, the wood-based panel industry will meet up at the Grand Elysée Hotel in Hamburg.

This time the organizers will allow more room for networking by extending the breaks and specializing the evening events.

For the first time, the location where the Sasol evening reception will take place will be disclosed before the symposium. Successful discussions with cool drinks and good food are important to us. In doing so enjoy a bird's eye view of Hamburg downtown!

We look forward to your participation!

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.
