The Wood Industry Cluster attended EFIC Furniture Day 2022

May 19 @ 10:00 16:00

On May 19, 2022, we attended the conference “Furniture Day 2022”, organized by EFIC – the European Furniture Industry Confederation.

The conference focused on topics such as digitalisation, the green transition and the impact of the Ukrainian-Russian war on supply chains and the furniture industry in the EU. It turns out that the furniture industry will undergo a fundamental change in its operations in the coming years, especially in terms of requirements in the field of reducing the industry’s impact on climate change. Both digitalization and the green transition or. the circular economy also brings an extremely large opportunity, and at the same time a shortage of labor and disruption or. changes in supply chains and the price of energy are of great concern to businesses. The situation is almost identical across the EU and beyond.

The event was also a great opportunity to establish new contacts with related organizations in the field of furniture in the EU and to discuss new collaborations. As part of the newly established “Cluster of Clusters” initiative, which operates within the EFIC, we have also taken the first steps towards concrete cooperation.
