New market opportunities for timber products

Presented by Andrew Dunn, TDA NSW, Wednesday 25 September 2013.

In 2009, consumers, builders and retailers attitudes to timber products were investigated in two project for FWPA titled; Increased Market Applications for Timber Decking: (PNA1340809) and Timber Product Opportunities in the House Remodelling Market (PNA1230809). These reports made recommendations to the timber industry on how increase timber specification and use can be achieved through their marketing or product offer as well as identified areas that needed work on. This webinar will review the findings from these two projects and explore what has changed since the reports were completed. Some time will also be spent on examples of success.
