ForestTECH 2016

forresttech2016ForestTECH is this regions premier technology series run for Australasia’s forest resource managers, planners and inventory foresters. It’s run by the Forest Industry Engineering Association (FIEA). Since 2007, it’s the one event every year that continues to draw in foresters from both countries. Key researchers, technology providers and forest owners are also now picking up the opportunity of building in their own client meetings, workshops and discussion groups around both the New Zealand and Australian events to capitalise on this “once a year” turnout.

ForestTECH is New Zealand and Australia’s leading forest management technology series, providing companies with the latest technologies, innovations and practical tools to increase forest operations productivity.

Held in Melbourne on the 22nd from 9.00am to 5.00pm and the 23rd from 8.30am to 3.00pm.
