 DANA event

For the first time ever, a DANA event is being held, not at a hotel conference venue, but at the unique Skukuza Conference Centre which is located in the world-renowned Kruger National Park

Your conference registration includes a Game Drive to seek out "The Big 5", and later to experience the conference dinner which will be a traditional African Braai (BBQ), under the stars of the African sky

Almost all speakers are now confirmed for this important second Africa Forest Industry Investment Conference - the current line up includes 14 international speakers

Three Major Keynote speakers are:

  • Ole Sand, the Managing Partner of Criterion Africa Partners who will open the conference. Criterion companies now harvest more logs than any other African company (excluding South Africa);
  • Piet van Zyl, the CEO of the major South African forest owning and wood processing company York Timbers; and
  • Stephen Jennings, Director of Rendeavour, a company which is investing in major urban infrastructure projects in Africa

In addition to this:

  • Country speakers covering Angola, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia are confirmed or are identified;
  • A number of South African and international speakers with presentations on regional and global wood trade, and on investment issues; and
  • All visits for a full 1 ½ day field trip are now in place, covering softwood and hardwood forestry and poles - sawn timber - plywood and pulp manufacturing

Full details of programme, speakers, online registration, venue and accommodation can be found on the website, or for further information regarding this conference and field trip or any other queries please email Julie Bell, Conference Organiser
