The Malaysian Wood Expo 2019 will take place from 19 to 21 November in Kuala Lumpur


The Malaysian Timber Council (MTC) is organising, jointly with Panels & Furniture Group, the Malaysian Wood Expo (MWE) 2019 , a wood and woodworking machinery show, to which they are pleased to invite you. The event will take place in Kuala Lumpur at Tun Razak Hall 1, Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) from 19 to 21 November 2019.

We share this information because the relations between ATIBT and the MTC are regular. Our association, together with LCB, had exchanges with the MTC at the beginning of 2019 and a work programme on the promotion of certified tropical timber in Europe was discussed. It has become clear that the promotion of tropical timber in Europe deserves to unite the efforts of the organisations involved in this task to jointly defend this market, which has been declining for years.

The ATIBT Marketing Commission will discuss this issue in the fall, as well as the common objectives between the two organisations.

This inaugural Kuala Lumpur exhibition aims to bring international timber-based industry players, woodworking machinery suppliers, buyers and related timber industry professionals for trade and networking opportunities.

MWE 2019 will focus on the market, trends, new products and the place where the tendencies of tomorrow are going to be discovered.

The main products of interest to buyers are:

  • Sawntimber
  • Plywood and veneer
  • Mouldings
  • Wooden flooring & decking
  • Wooden doors and windows
  • Furniture components

The persons concerned by this exhibition are timber and timber product importers looking for potential partners and who would like to penetrate the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) market and its neighboring regions.

Wood producers and processors in Africa may also wish to visit the Kuala Lumpur show in search of tropical wood techniques and trends.

Special offer for ATIBT members: MTC will sponsor buyers three (3) nights of accommodation at selected hotels. Each sponsored buyer will get one (1) complimentary single occupancy hotel accommodation for a period of 4D/3N from 18 – 21 November 2019. Terms and conditions apply. To benefit from it, please contact: Agnes Seah
