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.

IPPS 2023

3rd-4th October 2023

The International Panel Products Symposium (IPPS) will return to Llandudno in 2023. The conference will be held in The Imperial Hotel, Llandudno on 3rd and 4th October 2023. The call for papers is now open.

After a three-year break due to Covid-19 the organising team look forward to welcoming both seasoned IPPS delegates and people new to the sector and/or the conference to the delightful Victorian seaside town of Llandudno.

You can expect world-class research presentations, plenty of lively discussions, industry insights, networking opportunities, friendly staff and what we like to think of as one of the most fun and inclusive conference dinners!
