ATHENS, GREECE -- After the particularly successful realization of MEDWOOD in 2006, 2008 and 2010, the exhibition reopens its gates in 2012. MEDWOOD will take place March 29 - April 1, 2012 in the new modern exhibition centre, Metropolitan Expo. MEDWOOD is an International Exhibition of tools and equipment, semi-finished products, components and accessories and woodworking machinery for the furniture industry.

Metropolitan Expo is located at the very heart of commercial Athens, near the Athens International Airport "ELEFTHERIOS VENIZELOS". It is located at the end of the Attiki Odos Expressway, in the direction of the Airport, only two kilometres from the airport buildings and a few minutes from the metro and suburban railway stations, which are connected to the exhibition centre via regular internal transport. The access is very quick and flexible giving the chance of an all day business trip by airplane from every country that belongs to the area of Balkans, S.E. Europe and the Middle East.

The key product categories of MEDWOOD 2012 will be: Furniture materials, Woodwork machines, Woodwork – Construction, and Decorative materials. Visitors will be informed about new materials and advanced machinery, new trends and new opportunities as well as about upgraded structural materials.

An essential objective of the MEDWOOD exhibition is to enhance, in every new event, both the categories of its exhibits and their quality, on the basis of the modern trends in design, as well as functionality and innovation.

The world of timber was at MEDWOOD 2010; suppliers, furniture manufacturers, retailers, joiners, constructors, architects, civil engineers and designers expressed their impressiveness and satisfaction as much for the organisation and the quality of exhibits as for the appreciable image of the participating companies.
