Focus on Forestry - April 2017 - KZN

Planning is well underway for Focus on Forestry 2017, organised by CMO, NMMU and the ICFR. This year's Focus will be held in KwaZulu Natal (close to Pietermaritzburg), from 19 to 21 of April 2017. Focus on Forestry will now be presented every second year - alternating between KwaZulu Natal and Mpumalanga (2019). Hosting Focus every second year will allow us to offer you an event that will add more value from South Africa in particular and Africa in general, and allow equipment manufacturers and service providers to invest in good exhibitions and field demonstrations.

Focus on Forestry now has a wider scope of including silviculture, fire management and forest engineering.

The objective of this email is to engage with all stakeholders to obtain your suggestions regarding possible presentation topics and/or presenters.

The 2017 theme is: "Harvesting, silviculture and fire management systems for a restructured forest industry"

Focus on Forestry 2017 is a larger and improved conference, exhibition and demo, aimed at the entire forestry value chain and caters for forestry role-players from across the Africa. Our target market remains primarily for the forestry manager, contractor, equipment supplier and related role-players.

As with previous years, the organisers would like to ensure that we consult widely to guarantee that the needs of our industry are met and that we can compile the best possible line-up of speakers and topics. Please send a short email through to me by Thursday 29 September 2016. The suggestions will be consolidated into the Focus programme. 

It would be helpful to indicate under which discipline you are including your suggestion/s:
  • Forest Engineering:
  • Fire Management:
  • Silviculture:

Please feel free to share this info with others in your organisation.

We will be opening for early bird registrations by mid-October, so please keep an eye open for when this is announced so as to save on registration fees!
