The next ATIBT Forum is getting closer !

After 2 years of pandemic, the time has finally come to resume meetings. It is with a great desire to find times of discussion and face-to-face exchanges that we seized the opportunity of the next Carrefour International du Bois to organize the ATIBT Forum and the 70th anniversary of our Association.

A gala evening in honor of this anniversary, organized in the heart of Nantes under the nef des Machines de l'Île on May 31, will mark the opening of this meeting time. The Forum will begin with the Carrefour, the next morning, for three days of round tables and conferences. On Wednesday, June 1, a series of conferences will be held at La Beaujoire in a large conference room that can welcome 80 people. In parallel to these conferences, round tables will be held from Wednesday to Friday on the ATIBT stand.

These conferences and round tables will address many issues related to tropical timber markets, upstream and downstream of the sector; they will give the floor to actors and actresses of sustainable forest management in the Congo Basin and the promotion of certified tropical timber. These moments will also be an opportunity to exchange, in the form of question and answer sessions, on the current challenges of international trade in certified tropical timber.

The ATIBT team has produced a booklet of the event, presenting its framework, the context of the 70 years of the Association, the stands on which it will be mobilized and the topics that will be addressed. Although the program is still to be specified, we share this booklet with you here.
