TIWF 2024

Thailand’s thriving woodworking and furniture industry is looking forward to hosting the Thailand International Woodworking and Furniture Exhibition 2024 (TIWF 2024), which will take place at the IMPACT Exhibition and Convention Centre, in Bangkok from 18 to 20 September 2024.


TIWF 2024 is as a business platform to present and discuss the latest technology, solutions, materials, trends and sustainability impacting the woodworking industry, not just in Thailand, but also the Southeast Asian region. 

Hosted by Thailand’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, the exhibition has already received numerous industry endorsements from over 17 international and local industry organizations and associations, affirming the show’s presence as a regional face-to-face industry platform and market-gathering place. 

Taking up over 5,000 sqm, the exhibition has to date received participation confirmations from seven national exhibitor groups, including Germany, the US, Malaysia, Taiwan, China, France and Thailand, as well as over 150 exhibitors from 22 countries. 

Over 4,000 regional delegates and trade buyers are expected to attend this event, coming from across the entire spectrum of the woodworking and furniture production industry in Thailand and Southeast Asia. 

The exhibition is also a knowledge exchange platform with the conduct of a range of conferences and seminars that discuss and share latest industry trends and issues. In addition, there will also be a series of carpentry skill masterclasses and DIY workshops conducted by vocational institutes and knowledge partners. 

In helping to facilitate new business and networking opportunities between exhibitors and attendees, the show will oversee the conduct of numerous business-related activities such as business matching program, business networking activities, technology demonstration and product presentations. 

Ms. Peerayaphan Pongsanam, assistant director at IMPACT Exhibition Management said: "The trend demonstrates consistent growth in the exportation of Thai wood products. The Ministry of Commerce reveals that export values rose from 94,460.49 million baht in 2021 to 103,832 million baht in 2022, culminating in 115,176 million baht in 2023. This includes processed wood, plywood, fibreboard, wooden appliances, and wooden construction equipment, thereby illustrating robust and sustainable expansion in this vital sector.”

Recently, the organizers of TIWF 2024 went on road show to Chiang Mai, northern Thailand, where an industry seminar was organised to share the sustainability trends in woodworking productions. 

The seminar was well attended by over 70 delegates from 54 companies, coming from a region that has a vibrant woodworking industry, renowned for its skilled artisans, who produce a wide range of wooden products. 

A similar event is planned for in May, this time in Songkhla, south of Thailand. This southern region of Thailand is rich in natural wood resources, such as teak, rubberwood and mahogany and it supports a woodworking industry that encompasses both large-scale manufacturing operations and traditional craftsmanship.
