ForestTECH conference online now

Wednesday 15 Aug 2018

Our ForestTECH conference series is running in mid-November again. The conference is very popular given the pace of technology change.

This year a raft of new disruptive technologies already been trialled in the forestry industry – and allied industries – are going to be showcased for the first time in this region. Another key feature of the series this year are the pre-conference workshops that have been set up for ForestTECH 2018 delegates.

As we’ve done in the past, ForestTECH 2018 conference delegates have the opportunity of registering for a series of pre-conference workshops in both countries. This provides those attending the technology series some additional time with some of the key presenters in smaller groups. The workshops are free to ForestTECH 2018 conference delegates and will run on the afternoon before the main conference runs at each venue.

Workshops this year include: Developments in Forest Management & Wood Procurement Software, ArcGIS, Mixed-Reality Applications for Forestry (this workshop is being taken by two leading companies in this space right now, Microsoft and Taqtile Inc who are based in Seattle and have developed some innovative uses around HoloMaps and their own Manifest mixed-reality solutions) and VR Assessments for Forest Inventories.

Due to venue capacities, workshops are limited to just 40 delegates in Rotorua and 35 delegates in Melbourne. Seats for these will be filled on a “first in – first served” basis so if you and your team want to secure a space, you'd better register quickly.

For our subscribers in North America, this conference series continues running on 22-23 October in Vancouver, BC, Canada. In the meantime news and updates will be released on that website shortly.

Full conference and workshop programmes are on the event website,
