The Mass Timber Conference, which had its first event in 2016, is now the world’s largest gathering of experts and stakeholders in mass timber, with a focus on manufacturing and construction. The conference brings together the leading industries and suppliers from around the world, with the aim of exchanging experiences and learnings to advance the development of this technology in various countries. The event takes place once a year, always with a robust agenda and lectures led by world-renowned experts in the field.
For this year, architect Michael Green, a reference in timber constructions, recognized with more than forty international awards for design excellence, will be the keynote speaker at the event, which takes place from March 27 to 29 in Portland, United States.
