Good Wood Expo Roadshow

Indonesia

11 – 14 March 2019

Good Wood Expo is a roadshow of responsible promotional events which will take place around the world. We chose the Indonesia International Furniture Expo (IFEX 2019) as our first destination. IFEX is Indonesia’s flagship event and international showcase for the furniture industry. It is strongly supported by the industry and government, and attracts thousands of professional buyers worldwide.

Carrying the theme "Redefine, Inspire, Innovate", IFEX 2019 featured a wide range of products by around 500 exhibitors in a space of 60.000 square meters. The Good Wood Expo – Indonesia was quite a success and gathered over 200 visitors in its tent during the 4 days of IFEX.

Why Indonesia?

Indonesia is the first country in the world authorised to issue FLEGT licenses for timber products.

Ghana

28 February - 2 March 2018

Good Wood Expo Ghana (formerly called Responsible Timber trade Fair) was held in Accra, Ghana, as part of the 22nd Ghana International Trade Fair. The event took place from 28th February to 2nd March 2018.

The objective of the Responsible Timber Trade Fair was to raise awareness about the legal and certified timber trade and to promote and expose timber companies that embrace legality and the FLEGT-VPA process to timber traders from the EU and China. The presentations and discussions that took place and the timber companies that displayed their products in the exhibition booths helped to promote the trade in legal and certified timber products from West and Central Africa.
