On March 5th Osborne Wood Products traveled to London, England to take part in the EcoBuild Trade Show event. The event was held in the ExCel London Exhibition and Conference Center; a space covering over 325,000 square feet. The EcoBuild events are held in various cities around the world, and are among the largest sustainability exhibits and conferences. The show floor of EcoBuild was covered with thousands of exhibitors from around the globe. Exhibits ranged from timber, to light fixtures, to exterior design, all focusing on the green initiative and sustainability.
Joining representatives from Georgia companies Boral and Vetrazzo, Osborne took part in the show exhibiting with the Georgia Department of Economic Development. The show took place on Tuesday through Thursday (March 5th-7th) beginning at 10:00am each day.
This unique event was able to provide Osborne with valuable information and networking opportunities. Osborne representative Lane Taylor participated in meetings with several European companies to discuss European business trends, timber products in the European market, and interest in Osborne’s products.
Among those in attendance at the show were architects, manufacturing companies, interior designers, home owners and builders, and design students. Osborne was able to meet with many of these individuals and businesses from countries throughout Europe and around the world.
Ecobuild 2013 proved to be both exciting and beneficial to the company. Osborne is excited to remain in contact with those who visited the booth at the show, and to continue to develop business relationships in the European Union and around the world.
