Timber Expo

Date: 7 - 8 October 2014 Time: 2 day event
Location: NEC, Birmingham Cost: Free to attend, booking essential

Timber Expo will once again this year deliver an unrivalled collection of high calibre speakers from all corners of the built environment. From niche areas to leading trends, the Timber Focus seminar sessions will be characterised by big issues, hot topics, architectural gems and inspirational projects. Timber is grabbing the headlines for all the right reasons - clients want to learn more about it, architects appreciate the flexibility and customers love to be closer to it.

The Timber Focus seminars are split into eight key themes across both days, with nearly 50 half-hour sessions delivered in two purpose-built timber-based theatres. The majority will be case study based, drawing on real life examples on how and why timber is performing across a wide range of sectors and applications.

The eight key themes include:

  1. Pushing Boundaries: stretching imaginations 
  2. Training and Talent: growing your business through people
  3. Resource: Directors’ briefings
  4. Innovation: designing the future
  5. Engineers and Timber: ingenious structures
  6. Architects and Timber: striking designs
  7. From Blueprint to Building: a client and contractor perspective 
  8. Sense of Space: creating places to live, work and play
