As the mass timber movement continues to gain acceptance around the world, the industry will gather in Portland, OR next spring for its annual conference.
Eight years ago it was more of a cult than a mainstream building movement but now the mass timber industry has gained widespread acceptance throughout the world and so, its next conference promises to help advance the business even more.
More than 2,700 attendees, 170 exhibitors and 60 speakers are expected at the 2024 International Mass Timber Conference March 24 to 25 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, OR. Registration is now open for the event, which bills itself as “the largest gathering of mass timber experts in the world, focusing on the entire industry supply chain.”
Show organizers say attendees can learn about “cross-laminated timber (CLT), nail-laminated timber, glulam, mass plywood panels, dowel-laminated timber and laminated veneer lumber” as well as explore “the opportunities and obstacles in global design, construction, development, manufacturing and more.”
There will also be building tours of mass timber structures in the Portland area, which has become one of the more popular locations for such buildings.
One-day passes start at $450 and there are also all-access passes for the entire conference at $895 with reduced rates for students, educators, government officials and non-profits. Additional information and registration details are available at masstimberconference.com.
