Event Details

What’s Planned for 2017?

The ForestTECH series has been run annually since 2007. It is now firmly established as the technology event where forest resource managers, remote sensing and GIS specialists and inventory foresters from throughout Australia and New Zealand meet.

ForestTECH has become the annual platform for showcasing; new remote sensing technologies, advances in satellite imagery, mobile communications developments, systems for improving data collection, analysis and reporting, disseminating results from research and in-forest trials and the integration of this into operational, strategic and financial planning.

ForestTECH 2017 will again be building on this theme with an increased emphasis on how forestry companies can better use the ever increasing volume and quality of data that is being collected from a myriad of new platforms and sensors.

Programme Opportunities

We work closely with a wide range of New Zealand and international companies, service suppliers, researchers and government bodies to develop a strong and innovative programme.
