A look back at WoodEx 2016
From 9-11 June 2016, FSC Africa staff members attended the 4th bi-annual WoodEx exhibition, where we displayed a variety of FSC certified products ranging from packaging to wooden flooring, shutters and even lawn dressing.
The FSC stand was designed to raise awareness about FSC as an organisation, and the wide array of options when it comes to certifying products and packaging. WoodEx attendees included representatives from various timber-related industries, entrepreneurs and members of the public. The FSC stand received significant interest, with many visitors curiously examining the products on display and taking some of the reading materials we had available. Some visitors were certificate-holders who instantly recognised the FSC logo, and others were eager to learn more about the benefits certification could have for their businesses. Overall the event was a success and we hope to have made many meaningful and lasting contacts in the process.
We’d like to thank the following sponsors who provided items for us to display at the FSC stand:
Universal Paper and Plastics – pocket handkerchiefs
Tetra Pak – water cartons
TDM – door and shelf
Oggie – hardwood flooring
American Shutters – shutter
CTP – books
Sun Pallets – pallets
Sonae – wooden board used as a table top
