Acting Head of the Forestry Department for the Ural Federal District

Dear colleagues, ladies and gentlemen!

On behalf of the Federal Forestry Agency, the Forestry Department for the Ural Federal District welcomes you to the international specialized exhibition of machines, equipment and technologies for forestry and the woodworking industry LESPROM-Ural Professional-2019.

It is pleasing to see that this Ural region’s largest event for the timber industry professionals gathers around a hundred companies from a dozen countries each year.

Today, Russia’s forest sector is undergoing serious transformations. In the Ural Federal District, forests occupy a large area. But this is not only our great wealth, it is also our great responsibility. We must effectively and carefully manage this versatile renewable resource. Therefore, it is extremely important to make all efforts to benefit from the enormous economic potential of forestry. Many companies are ready to invest in joint projects. This is a good trend because this enables us to process more timber in the country.

During the four days of the exhibition, you will have access to informative seminars and round tables, scientific reports and educational programs. The Forestry Department for the Ural Federal District has organized an extended meeting featuring executive authorities of the Ural Federal District, Roslesinforg, as well as timber manufacturers, on updates of the Forest Code of the Russian Federation, including on the delegation of forest management responsibility to the federal level. It is important to note that the forest management is an integral part of the state forest management system and the main source of information supporting the forest management organization. The information obtained from forest management works is the basis of the timber processing complex.

We aim at preserving and efficiently using forest resources, promoting innovative development of the forest-based industries, improving the forest management efficiency, preventing damage from illegal logging, building an efficient forestry economy, ensuring sustainable waste treatment management and environmental safety of the Ural region.

I wish you all well-being, promising technological solutions, business growth, and new professional achievements!

President of the Union of timber manufacturers and exporters of Russia

Dear participants and guests! On behalf of the Union of timber manufacturers and exporters of Russia, I welcome you to the week of specialized exhibitions GRAND EXPO-URAL.

The forestry and timber processing industry are an important sector of the Russian economy that has a significant potential for its development. At the same time, it has a number of objective competitive advantages. These include, first of all, a significant number of timber raw materials, qualified personnel available, a growing demand for high-quality timber and paper products, as well as a convenient geographical location in relation to dynamic developing markets in Western Europe and South-East Asia.

However, despite the high potential of the timber industry, the factual indicators of forest management, production and domestic consumption of the main types of timber and paper products in the recent years have not met the requirements of the effective forest management and timber production. Russian companies involved in the timber industry require latest technologies, modern equipment, high-tech machines, new approaches and waste treatment technologies.

The furniture industry is a very important part of the Russian timber complex, which year after year has demonstrated only positive changes. Recently, domestic furniture production has been in constant growth, providing a better quality, improved design, as well as an expanded product range based on consumer’s demand and possibilities of various social groups.

During the GRAND EXPO-URAL Week, these topics will be the focus of its participants’ attention.

These exhibitions in Ekaterinburg offer opportunities to its participants and visitors to get familiar with new woodworking equipment and discover new trends in the furniture industry. They contribute to the conclusion of profitable contracts, facilitate successful promotion of Russian products and enhance the reputation of domestic producers.

I am sure that the participation in the exhibitions LESPROM-URAL Professional and EXPOMEBEL-URAL will be a real opportunity for exhibitors to present themselves and find new customers. It will also help to reinforce business relations between Russian and foreign manufacturers and trading companies. I wish successful business and prosperity to all participants, organizers and guests.

General director of the Association of furniture
and woodworking enterprises of Russia

On behalf of the Association of furniture and woodworking enterprises of Russia, I welcome exhibitors, guests and organizers to the International specialized exhibition EXPOMEBEL-URAL in Ekaterinburg.

At the end of 2018, the domestic furniture industry showed significant growth. In monetary terms, it amounted to 189.7 billion rubles (+25% compared to the previous year). According to preliminary data, this trend continues this year. That means that today we can safely state that the national furniture industry has gradually adapted to the modern market realities and transformed consumption patterns. Still, sales of furniture correlate with the real estate market in our country. And in this regard, the Ural region has a significant development potential for the furniture industry. The volume of housing, retail and office space construction only in the Sverdlovsk region is 3.93 million square meters per year, and in the whole region more than 6 million square meters are built annually. In addition, the Sverdlovsk region is in the top 5 Russian entities in terms of retail trade turnover.

Every year the EXPOMEBEL-URAL exhibition becomes the center of attraction for specialists of the furniture industry and related industries. New collections of furniture, upholstery fabrics, components and accessories draw both professional visitors and end users of furniture products. It is gratifying to note that the exhibition is the place where furniture manufacturers can see specialized equipment in action, select machines and establish business contacts with suppliers. The eventful congress program is the hallmark of the furniture fair in Yekaterinburg. The latest trends, legislation and initiatives, sales and marketing are discussed by the participants and guests of EXPOMEBEL URAL throughout the exhibition.

I wish organizers, guests and participants of EXPOMEBEL-URAL fruitful work, profitable contracts and success in achieving the goals!

Acting Rector of the Ural State Forest Engineering University

Dear colleagues! The International Eurasian symposium «Woodworking: technologies, equipment, management of the XXI century» is organized and run by the Ural State Forest Engineering University for fourteen years and it is key event of LESPROM-URAL Professional’s congress program.

Currently, the government pays special attention to applied sciences and commercialization of scientific developments. This has been stated in the Scientific and Technological Development Strategy of the Russian Federation and National projects which aim at ensuring Russia’s scientific, technological and socio-economic breakthrough, higher living standards, as well as providing conditions and opportunities to allow everyone to discover their talents and achieve personal fulfillment.

During the Symposium, researchers and specialists from various scientific, educational and industrial organizations are going to discuss how to improve the timber industry technically and technologically from round timber production to finished products. Today, the Symposium has become the center attracting various presentations and business events of the annual Eurasian timber industry forum in the framework of the GRAND EXPO-URAL exhibitions: LESPROM-URAL, EXPOMEBEL-URAL, AQUAPROM-URAL, and UTILIZATION.

The Eurasian forum is a platform for professional communication and discussion on important issues of the timber industry. The forum features students, postgraduates and young scientists, which contributes to the preservation, reproduction and development of intellectual and engineering potential. The rich forum’s program allows participants to establish business contacts and demonstrate their achievements.

On behalf of the Ural State Forestry University, I welcome all participants of the XIV international Eurasian Symposium "Woodworking: technologies, equipment, management of the XXI century".

I wish you all fruitful work, effective business contacts and excellent mood!

The specialized exhibitions week GRAND EXPO-URAL in Ekaterinburg is a traditional multi-industry event of the international scale, which displays the latest achievements and innovations of a few important industries.

The UTILIZATION exhibition within GRAND EXPO-URAL is taking on a growing topicality every year in the context of an increased role of the environmental movement and the interest of all segments of the society in protecting nature against anthropogenic pollution.

Waste management is a complex and multifaceted problem. On the one hand, it is a source of secondary resources. On the other hand, we have to deal with environmental hazards associated with environmental pollution. Waste management is a symbiosis of science-based technical, technological, economic, environmental and legal measures related to the operation of enterprises. In this regard, the development and implementation of low-waste and resource-saving technologies, new equipment and technical means, is of particular relevance.

The industry forum “Changes and innovations in the field of waste management. Environmental and financial risks of enterprises”, in the framework of the UTILIZATION exhibition, will be dedicated to the topics that are currently on the agenda. First of all, industrial and municipal waste management. Waste management ensures environmental safety, preserves the environment and improves people’s quality of life. This industry forum is another serious step towards the unification and integration of all the structural forces associated with waste transportation, treatment, disinfection and disposal.

I wish the organizers, participants and guests of the exhibitions to have a fruitful exchange of experience and implement new business projects aimed at preserving nature, and therefore people’s life and health!
