Issue 19 – August 2010
Registration is open for the ForestWood 2010 Conference, Tuesday 12 October 2010 at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, Wellington.
ForestWood 2010 is a pan-industry conference being jointly hosted by Forest Owners Association, Wood Processors Association, Pine Manufacturers Association, Forest Industry Contractors Association, and supported by Woodco, NZ Farm Forestry Association, and Frame & Truss Manufacturers Association.
This is the first time that these organisations have held a joint conference. This will build on the successes of previous individual and combined industry events which have attracted world-class speakers and presenters.The conference will be focused on the forest industry's contribution to New Zealand's future prosperity – how it can maximise value through the value chain, the sector's relationship with the community, and the challenges facing the different sectors.
This is a fantastic opportunity for organisations and individuals with a keen interest in forestry to engage with decision-makers and professional specialists from the forestry industry.
