Building project owners, developers, EPAs, Architects, etc. along with companies having the potential of meeting their demands by using the necessary materials, engineering and technologies for designing and constructing mid-rise and high-rise wood buildings.
Representatives of public authorities working at promoting the use of wood in this type of structure are also concerned, in particular to share their experiences as well as their methods and procedures in taking action at the international level.
And lastly, engineering and design departments, economists, control bureaus, certifiers of products and structures as well as R&D stakeholders are also invited, as their input is a decisive factor in knowledge and recommendations relating to the solutions best adapted to the challenge of high-rise buildings.
