From 6th to 9th September 2022, Slovenia will host the most renowned globally hosted event in the field of taller wooden buildings that draws over 1000 participants from all the fields of the built environment as well as policymakers and standardisation entities. The 2022 congress is also taking place under the honorary patronage of the President of the Republic of Slovenia Borut Pahor.
The congress reflects all that the European Green Deal and the New European Bauhaus stand for. It showcases the best global practices in timber engineering and architecture with the aim to promote sustainable transformation and development of the construction sector. In 2022 the congress will furthermore intensively focus on the topic of renovation, rehabilitation, and restoration of existing urban buildings with the use of wood-based technologies.
The congress will be held on the crossroad of three different cultures, where the forests of the east meet the construction technologies of the west. We invite you to join thousands of fellow innovative timber construction designers on the Adriatic coast in beautiful Portorož, Slovenia, for four days of knowledge, tours and Mediterranean hospitality.
