With the spread of ESG investment, the realization of a decarbonized society, and the achievement of the SDGs, the trend toward "wood use" and "wood change" is increasing in all aspects of life. As the use of wood continues to advance, the utilization of wooden materials in urban environment (usage of wood and wooden materials for non-residential, medium-to-high-rise, and large buildings in urban areas), which has an impact of an order of magnitude in terms of economic benefits, social roles, and wood demand, is attracting attention as a major step toward revitalization of the forest industry including forestry and regional revitalization.。

Seizing the strong interest in the market as a commercial opportunity, we will hold the FORESTROPOLITAN exhibition (Urban Wood Technology Exhibition) for the first time to further promote urban wood technologies, which strongly moves the cycle of "cutting, using, planting, and growing trees".

The exhibition will allow interested parties and target audiences to experience various products, technologies, and services related to urban lumbering, and will create business opportunities through the possibility of business negotiations and exchanges. The seminars will be held together with the exhibition to lay out themes to foster awareness of the introduction of the technologies and establish a foothold for their implementation and popularization. We hope that you will consider participating in the exhibition for the purpose of promoting your technology, promoting sales, and further market development.


The term was coined by combining the words "Forest" and "Metropolitan". The former expresses the concept of forest industry (forest business) that encompasses everything from upstream forestry to midstream forestry and downstream lumber use, all of which share forest resources as their common foundation. The latter means capital city, metropolitan city, or urban area. Two words are combined to form the title in hopes of promoting urban wood technology as a trigger for the revitalization of the forest industry as a whole, including forestry, which is the heart of the industry.
