2018 DANA NZ Forest - Wood Products Conference & Field Trip

30 September - 03 October 2018
Taupo, New Zealand

It gives us great pleasure to be able to bring to you the 2018 DANA NZ Forest - Wood Products Conference & Field Trip in and around the Taupo Region in early October. This follows on from several previous DANA NZ conferences, including a very successful (and over subscribed) pre-conference field trip in Rotorua last year.

Sunday 30 September - Optional Pre-event Boat Adventure: Join us and cruise Lake Taupo on one of Chris Jolly Outdoors charter boats for trout fishing, claybird shooting and a buffet dinner. This is a great way to enjoy some of what the Taupo region have to offer, and to network - on a "lazy" Sunday afternoon.

Monday 01 October and Tuesday 02 October (AM) - Conference: We have expanded this out to 1 days this year. Given the change in government and a serious re-focus on forestry and the forest processing sector, we thought it timely to provide a theme for this year's event: Does the NZ Industry Have to be World Class to Compete in the World? We already have almost 95% of the 18 speaking slots filled, and so the programme is able to show these, even as we launch the website.

With previous conference organisation experience, we have been able to further refine our programme to attract a wide ranging audience - from selected important political figures, to forestry and wood processing presentations, and including specially interesting panel slot, where we have persuaded wine, kiwifruit and avocado industry leaders to share their views on what it takes to be or become "World Class". We also have presentations by leaders in non- direct forest sector positons (e.g. a geothermal power company and a port) which are so important to our sector.

2018 DANA Australia Forest - Wood Products Conference & Field Trip

Launceston, Australia
9-11 October 2018

DANA is very pleased to offer delegates a comprehensive 1 1/2 day, information filled conference on the Australian forest industry sector in Launceston, Australias oldest city and a major gateway to Tasmania, in October. This will be the 7th event that DANA has held in Australia, and it is fitting that it is being held in Tasmania, a state that is quickly regaining its former importance in the Australian forestry and wood products sectors.

The conference programme features 18 international and domestic specialists from Tasmania and the mainland, with presentations on several topics of interest to all Australians, and our popular New Funds - New Projects Panel will round out proceedings.

Following the conference, we have organised a 1 1/2 day field trip which will include visits to plantations, softwood and hardwood sawmills, and log and wood chip export ports. Seats will be limited so we encourage you to register your participation now.
