The European Panel Products Symposium (EPPS) has been running since 1997. In 2007 it was renamed the International Panel Products Symposium (IPPS) to reflect the increasingly global nature of the industry and reflect the delegate base.

Over the years the conference has reported many exciting developments in the industry and been a showcase for high quality research from Europe, and increasingly worldwide. Papers from all conferences are available in the printed copies of the conference proceedings.

In 2010 the conference team explored a new seminar style format, with the introduction of the IPPS Master Class. The Master Class has now been established as an event which will occur on alternate years to the main IPPS conference. Master Classes are well suited to generating a high quality of discussion and learning, with longer sessions, presented by experts in their field, allowing new technologies and concepts to be well explored.
