§Tech Sharing to Live Experiences –Multifaceted Journey!

The upcoming livestream event and wood technology seminar series will focus on four key issues that are currently affecting the wood processing industry. These issues include proactive export products with simple operation, green factories that are working towards carbon neutrality, equipment health that is maintained through smart maintenance, and EUDR and green supply chains. The event aims to showcase the latest technologies from Taiwan and provide a valuable foundation for major wood variations in Vietnam to update information on trends and new art technologies. The workshops will feature live demonstrations accompanied by practical solutions from participating galleries. These workshops will also introduce the right time to convert and upgrade factories, particularly in light of the many changes in the industry and legacy products. 


Furthermore, the event will provide attendees with casual, interactive activities, including limited-edition canvas bag serigraphy, a themed photo wall, and refreshment stations. These elements introduce a touch of informality within the context of formal B2B business interactions, facilitating more significant networking opportunities for domestic and international companies.
