The event

The furniture industry in Central Europe is a strong, traditional economic sector. Like many industries, it is in a state of upheaval and is currently facing major challenges with regard to the transformation of business processes from linear to circular. 
We would like to start an exchange with you as stakeholders, provide concrete political input on the circular economy, present the first best practice examples in the furniture industry, discuss the necessary framework conditions and approaches for a reorientation and fix the next structural and strategic steps.
