RUSSIAN WOOD AND TIMBER 2014 - Production, Supply, Processing and Trade: harnessing knowledge to create new business opportunities in Russia’s forestry sector

Hot topics at Russian Wood and Timber conference in 2014:

  • Development of forest policy in Russia

Systemic crisis in the forestry sector and how to shift it. Evaluating the state of the Russian forest complex and update on the latest developments in the formation of Russia’s Forestry Policy

  • Implementing forest projects in Russia

State support for the industry, PPPs and their feasibility in the Russian forestry sector, regional programmes and financing options

  • Developing the domestic market for wood & timber products

What types of new timber products should be developed for domestic consumption and what is the potential for growth and in what category of products? Evaluating the current state of the wooden housing construction and furniture manufacturing sectors to determine the future needs and prospects for the domestic market

  • Science and technology to drive the sector forward

The latest viable research projects designed to improve technologies in the Russian forestry complex. Evaluating successful or recent examples of new technologies developed within Russia and their practical implementation


Last year’s pre-conference “Wood and Timber Market Intelligence” Focus-Day proved popular with attendees and we witnessed many lively debates on a range of timber sales issues. This year we are making this day more focused by concentrating specifically on sawn timber and wood panels but are also expanding the breadth of coverage by inviting the leading distributors to share their thoughts and ideas on the current state of timber sales, prospects for various products, and pricing.

Key topics for discussion:

  • An overview of the demand, volumes and pricing for sawn timber and a range of wood panels
  • How is the Asian market developing and how do these developments impact the rest of the world?
  • What is the situation in Russia: will the prices and the demand continue to fall?
  • What is the forecast for OSB manufacturing in Russia: what new plants will come on line and how will new facilities impact on supply and pricing?
