European Bamboo Expo 2024 Concludes with Global Participation and Success

Dortmund, Germany – The second annual European Bamboo Expo 2024, held from May 16 to May 18, 2024, concluded with resounding success, drawing international visitors from around the globe. This year’s expo featured 30 exhibitors, 25 speakers, and attracted over 300 visitors, highlighting the central role of bamboo in the circular economy, with a special focus on the construction and food industries.

The event showcased the remarkable versatility of bamboo as a renewable resource in architecture, textile manufacturing, agriculture, and commercial product design. “Bamboo possesses the extraordinary ability to regenerate devastated soils. Simultaneously, it offers a plethora of opportunities for agricultural practitioners and investors in European crops. Together, we can contribute to advancing innovations in the circular economy,” said expo organizer Iraklis Kalamenios of Weproductions.

Building upon the success of last year’s inaugural event, which attracted exhibitors and speakers from over 30 countries, this year’s expo provided businesses with a unique platform to present their latest products, technologies, and services to potential partners, customers, and governmental institutions. Participants explored the latest trends in the global bamboo industry and identified new opportunities for research, product development, and investments in the European market.

The expo revisited the theme of bamboo as a sustainable building material, a highlight of last year’s event. This year’s expo also emphasized public engagement, addressing locals, consumers, as well as architects, developers, builders, decision-makers, and industry representatives.

“Dortmund is committed to environmental quality and climate protection. As a city with the most green spaces, we are well-versed in growth and renewable resources,” said Dortmund’s Lord Mayor Thomas Westphal. “We have been engaged in sustainable, circular, and socially oriented economies for a long time. Therefore, as the Lord Mayor, it is important to me that an expo focusing on the sustainable use of our resources is hosted in our beloved City. With the European Bamboo Expo, we aim to promote a renewable resource, which is already well-known and widespread in Asia, to maturity and higher recognition in Europe.”

Presented with pride by the city of Dortmund, the European Bamboo Expo 2024 was organized and executed by the event production and marketing company Weproductions. The conference -expo took place at the Dietrich-Keuning-Haus, Leopoldstraße 50-58, 44147 Dortmund.
