Welcome to the International Panel Products Symposium homepage. IPPS is the leading technical conference on wood based panels, including all aspects of panel production technology, feedstocks, resins and additives, market analysis and the use of wood based panels in furniture and construction applications. The full conference runs every two years, and in the intervening year a Masterclass allows a focused look at important topics in a more informal learning-friendly environment.
