2020 International Wood Adhesives Conference


The 12th International Conference on Wood Adhesives will be held Sept. 30 - Oct. 2, 2020 at the Portland Hilton Downtown hotel in Portland, Oregon, USA. This is one year earlier than originally planned, based on the strong interest and activity in bio-based adhesives.

The International Conference on Wood Adhesives is the premier technical conference on advances in adhesion of wood and biomass. Industry representatives were the majority of the 241 attendees in 2017, evenly split between the US and the rest of the world.

Whether you are an adhesive supplier or user or user of the downstream product; from industry, academia, government, or NGO, this conference provides a unique opportunity. Don't wait another 3-4 years.

If your business depends on having solid technical knowledge about glued wood products, this meeting is for you. We recruit the best technical thinking in the field of wood adhesives so you get the most value for your time invested and will have access to the proceedings.
