  • Covid 19

Date: 21 May


Time: 3PM London/10AM New York

Much uncertainty currently surrounds the economic environment but there is some light at the end of the Covid-19 tunnel, with more timber sector companies increasing operational activity. How can companies adapt in the coming months and what will be the important focus points.

The Covid-19 crisis has greatly impacted production operations and sales across most sectors of the wood industries, bringing unique and unprecedented challenges.

As we move into a different phase of the pandemic, how can the industry and companies within it adapt to the challenges ahead. TTJ’s Coming out of Covid webinar will examine key questions from different perspectives of the timber supply chain: sawmilling/importing, merchanting and timber product manufacturing.

Our expert panel will discuss the supply and demand situation, how different sectors are adapting to challenges and what will be important for companies in the weeks and months ahead.

Join us for the debate. Knowledge and communication are absolutely fundamental for helping business at this time.
