BWF Members Day | 7 July 2016 | Towcester

The British Woodworking Federation (BWF) Members’ Day Conference 2016 will take place on Thursday 7th July at Whittlebury Hall Hotel and Spa, Whittlebury, Towcester.

BWF Members’ Day will provide joinery manufacturers and woodworking professionals the opportunity to participate in various workshops entirely focused on their needs, and to get up to date with the latest developments in the industry. The event also includes a free exhibition showcasing the latest innovations and technologies to aid the joinery industry.

The programme features BWF technical experts and other guest speakers covering topics as diverse as the fundamentals of stair design and how to deal with conflicting standards and regulations in that market, to managing difficult clients, smarter production processes, the growing use of wood in interiors, maintaining certifications, tackling poor installations, and how to avoid the three big health and safety fines. Kevin Underwood, the BWF’s technical director, will be running a workshop on the practical introduction of CE Marking of fire doorsets.

Keynote speakers include Suzannah Nichol MBE, chief executive of Build UK, who will give an update on the progress being made on fundamental supply chain issues and Bill Esterton MP who is expected to give his viewpoint on the implications of the EU Referendum and the latest iteration of the Government’s construction strategy.

Prior to the event, the BWF AGM on 6th July will confirm the appointment of a new BWF President for 2016. There will also be a drinks reception and informal networking dinner on the evening of 6th July.
