The conference aims to encourage the innovative practices in woodworking industry. Various woodworking professionals will be discussing different topical issues addressing the development of innovative woodworking in the region. Conference will explore the potentials of timber in architecture as a tool for innovative and sustainable development. Internationally recognised architects will present innovative examples of use of timber in designing modern buildings.
In a competitive tight market, the differentiation strategy for specific niche markets in the development of innovative, well-crafted products with superior quality detailing, says that a strategic opportunity for woodworkers who could try to achieve added value is to create an opportunity to enter or strengthen cooperation in demanding European markets in global markets, and maintain green jobs in rural areas. Therefore, since niche markets are smaller in policy than others, these products mean exclusivity, uniqueness, differentness and, as such, a higher added value.
