DREMA Fair 2007
This year's International Fair of Woodworking Machines and Tools - DREMA 2007was held from 24th till 27th April 2007 at the premises of Poznan International Fair.

- a testing station called ARTIFICIAL SPORTSMAN designed and constructed in the Wood Technology Institute and allowing testing various types of floors for the correctness of structural solutions, especially so-called sports floors;

The Institute together with the Publishing House prepared a competition for the exhibition visitors entitled „Faces of wood" which consisted in identification of 6 samples of wood-based panels.
