interzum, the leading trade fair for wood processing, design and furniture manufacturing

From 14 to 17 May, interzum bogota, the global leader in wood processing, design and furniture manufacturing, returns to Corferias, Bogotá, as a platform showcasing the industry’s solutions, technology and innovations. Featuring participants from countries including Turkey, Brazil, Chile, Spain, Italy, Germany, India and the United States, this significant event will focus on innovation, the circular economy, design and sustainability, highlighting global trends and new solutions for an industry at the cutting edge.


After the remarkable success of the 2022 edition, which brought together 120 exhibitors and attracted over 10,000 visitors, the 2024 edition of interzum bogota promises to be an even more enriching experience. This momentum is supported by growing interest from participating brands, with demand so high that the event has completely sold out. With expectations including the participation of 220 exhibitors, the opening of a new hall and the attendance of 14,000 visitors from all over the world, this edition is poised to be one of the most remarkable in Colombia.

This edition will focus on the crucial themes of sustainability and the circular economy, reflecting the trade fair’s commitment to promoting responsible solutions within the industry. This direction emphasises the importance of adopting practices that not only protect forests but also encourage the sustainable use of resources in a country with immense forestry potential. With 24 million hectares suitable for commercial forestry plantations, Colombia represents a valuable opportunity to lead in sustainable forest conservation and management. The fair aims to be a platform that fosters innovation in natural resource management, positioning the industry as a beacon of environmental responsibility and good sustainability practices.
