Invitation WEI hybrid autumn meeting

Brussels-webinar – Thursday 9 September, 9h30 – 13h00

Dear Member,

You will remember that WEI was supposed to meet for its annual meeting in Milan this year but that it was decided to cancel this meeting due to the continuing pandemic.

However, since the situation starts to improve in many countries and that vaccination campaigns are successful, we take the initiative to organize a physical meeting in Brussels on Thursday 9 September at the Novotel Tour Noir in Brussels.

The meeting will start at 9h30 and close at 13h00 followed by a buffet lunch.

As we know that not all interested members will be in a position to travel abroad, it will be a hybrid meeting where participants may also have the possibility to connect via the internet.

We are currently working on an interesting programme. The following topics are already confirmed:

  • BPR: Creosote and other active substances
  • Update on sawmill sector
  • UK development on quality control of treated timber

Important to note is that we will only continue with this hybrid meeting if at least 20 members will take part in Brussels. If fewer members intend to participate, we will opt for a 100% webinar.

Therefore, we invite you to complete the attached registration form before 31 August 2021.

An agreement with the hotel has been reached that we can cancel the meeting room for free before the end of the month. Rooms can be cancelled at zero cost until 2 days before the event.

On Tuesday the 31st we will decide whether the meeting will be a hybrid one or not. You will be informed the same day!

Looking forward to meeting you in Brussels, we meanwhile remain,

Yours sincerely
