The Salt Palace Convention Center is in the heart of Utah’s state capitol. It was the media center for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games and has all the physical amenities needed to make attending the Congress a comfortable, enjoyable experience.

Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC) receives direct flights from 12 cities in Asia, Canada, Europe, and Latin America. Travel time between the airport and downtown Salt Lake City is about 10 minutes.

Who Should Attend?

The International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) is open to all individuals and organizations dedicated to forests, forest products, and related disciplines. The 24th IUFRO World Congress will provide attendees the opportunity to share knowledge and build relationships with colleagues from around the world.

The agenda will facilitate the flow of ideas and interaction among attendees. After the Congress, we hope that attendees will feel invigorated in their efforts to enhance understanding of the ecological, economic, and social aspects of forests and trees and to disseminate this information around the world.
