What is Dubai WoodShow?

Published Date: 2/11/2022

One great philosopher, a Docent and Doctor of Psychology at the University of Tampere, Marjut Wallenius once said, “Wood reduces stress in a person and has a calming effect. This is based on the positive emotional experience that wood causes, such as proximity to nature, warmth, homeliness and a relaxing effect.” The quote expresses the importance of wood; hence Dubai WoodShow was established.
