The staff at Panel World magazine is in full in-person-conference mode in preparation for the eighth Panel & Engineered Lumber International Conference & Expo (PELICE) to be held March 31 to April 1, 2022 at the Omni Hotel at CNN Center in Atlanta.

Some of the keynote speakers we’ve lined up include: Roseburg’s Jake Elston, Swiss Krono’s Wedig Graf Grote, American Wood Council’s Jackson Morrill, Coastland Wood Industries’ Doug Pauze, RoyOMartin’s Scott Poole, AFRY’s Philipp Sauter and Kennesaw State economist Roger Tutterow. We’re in negotiation with several others as well and will be announcing those soon.

In addition, PELICE will feature numerous technical sessions on Air Emissions Control, Resins & Waxes, Project Implementation, Quality Control, Fire Prevention, Digital Integration, and Veneer & Plywood Technologies. We continue to line up speakers for these topics, such as Rob Freres of Freres Lumber, Tom Evans of Coastal Forest Resources, Rodney Schwartz of Dürr Systems, Steve Banick of Hexion, Dane Floyd of Veneer Services, Richard Lepine of Argos Solutions, Ed Pridgen of Flamex, Michael Spurgin of Limab, Bijan Shams of Cogent Industrial Technologies, Rodney Pennington of Nestec and many others.

The full timeline agenda will be released in mid-January on the website: www.pelice-expo.com, as well as through e-mail blasts and in the Panel World newsletter. The March issue of Panel World will encompass a special PELICE 2022 preview.

Needless to say, we’re pumped up for the PELICE coming out party!
