The City of Wood
Wood Building Summit is held in Skellefteå, a city in the northern part of Sweden with a long tradition in wood building combined with world-class institutions and a constantly growing industrial sector.
Excellent infrastructure gives access to the whole Nordic market and the airline connections are also very good. (e.g Stockholm Arlanda International Airport is only one hour away). Skellefteå Municipality has a population of 73,000 and, in addition to the forestry & mining industries, the city is known for a much-awarded creative industry, its vibrant music scene and its passion for sports.
The forest industry in Sweden
Sweden is recognized as the worlds 3rd largest exporter of pulp, paper and sawn timber. In 2016 Sweden produced 17.8 million cubic metres of sawn timber and invested 2 billion SEK in research at universities, colleges and institues. In the Skellefteå region we have research institutes, university and several producers of wooden construction products, houses and sawmills. This is a region where tradition and history are united with technical development and innovative ideas, all of which you will be able to see for yourself by taking part in the pre-events with field trips to wood buildings in the city or the workshop on CLT.
