Join us in Fall 2025 for the Next
FPS International Conference on Wood Adhesives!
The 12th International Conference on Wood Adhesives will be held May 11-13, 2022 at the Portland Hilton Downtown Hotel in Portland, Oregon, USA.
We are very excited to move forward with planning for a full, in-person event next Spring.
The International Conference on Wood Adhesives is the premier technical conference on advances in the adhesion of wood and biomass. Industry representatives were the majority of the 241 attendees in 2017, evenly split between the U.S. and the rest of the world.
Whether you are an adhesive supplier or user or user of the downstream product; from industry, academia, government, or NGO, this conference provides a unique opportunity. Don't wait another 3-4 years.
If your business depends on having solid technical knowledge about glued wood products, this meeting is for you. We recruit the best technical thinking in the field of wood adhesives so you get the most value for your time invested and will have access to the proceedings.
Announcements will be made via the conference website and on the Linkedin group “International Conference on Wood Adhesives” as information becomes available.
Providing a safe meeting space for our speakers and attendees is our number one priority. COVID-19 rules and regulations are subject to change so we advise you to check back for updates as the conference dates approach. All presenters and attendees will need to either show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of checking in at the registration desk. In addition, under current rules, the state of Oregon mandates masks in public indoor settings until at least Feb 8, 2022. When the time gets closer we will post information on where to get tested in Portland.
