Overview

Event Overview:

The 69th Forest Products Society (FPS) International Convention will be held June 10-12, 2015 at Atlanta's Georgia World Congress Center alongside SFPA Expo 2015—the 33rd Forest Products Machinery & Equipment Exposition. The annual International Convention is the premier event for professionals in the forest products industry. The Convention brings together hundreds of scientists, design professionals, managers, decision makers, and others from academia, government, nonprofit, and private industry sectors to discuss the state of forest products research and learn about innovations in the field.

Wood remains one of our most important renewable construction materials - a natural resource that contributes to the social, economic, and environmental sustainability of the planet. The Convention is a showcase for ideas: research, development, philosophy, technology. The boundaries between industry sectors are gone. Cross-pollination is the goal.

The theme of the 69th International Convention is "Unlocking the Potential of Forest Products" and will feature sessions targeting wood properties in construction, wood and the environment, education and marketing for the forest products industry, and advances in technology.
