DANA London International Timberland Investment Conference: 10 & 11 October 2013: September Newsletter Issue 3

This is likely to be the last formal DANA London International Timberland Investment Conference newsletter before our two day Conference commences next Thursday and Friday October 10th and 11th

However, we are now receiving an increasing number of enquiries from people around the world who may have just heard about the meeting, and who are asking us details about the program and attendance.  Dennis Neilson from DANA Ltd ( or myself will of course be happy to answer any queries, right up to the morning of the Conference, so please do not hesitate to contact us.

Below are examples of emails in just this afternoon:
  • "X or I are trying to re-arrange our schedules to attend your conference in London next week."
  • "I see that you will be hosting this conference in London next week. I'm hoping that I might be able to secure places for me and one of my colleagues. It will be good to catch up with you, X (who I haven't seen in 10 years), and the fine set of panelists that you've assembled."
  • "Your program looks spot on"

We are confident that we have secured the highest quality speakers and panelists ever assembled for a timberlands investment conference in Europe; but you can decide for yourselves by going to the program speakers and panelists link.  In addition to the speaker program, we have 13 panelists in two sessions providing brief descriptions on projects and associated topics in Western and Eastern Europe, Latin America, Africa, Oceania and Pacific Islands.

This will be the inaugural DANA London Timberland Investment Conference, but it is shaping up to the be the first in a series, with a different business model to other similar meetings held in London.  We now have more than 100 delegates, from 22 countries registered; and if other DANA/DANA associated meetings in 2013 (in Istanbul and Melbourne) are any guide, we should get several more delegates in the next 9-10 days; including walk ups on the day.  You will be provided with a list of delegates as part of your Conference information package when you register.

There are also opportunities to register for private prearranged meetings between investors and project managers, so if you are interested in finding out more information, please contact me as soon as you can.

We're delighted to announce that our colleagues at IPD in London have reserved a limited number of complimentary guest places for DANA Conference delegates to attend the afternoon session of their IPD Alternative Real Estate Conference as well as the networking drinks reception and alternative investment dinner on Wednesday 9th October.  Don't miss this unique opportunity to network with senior figures from the European institutional investment market who have an increasing interest in alternative investments, see the program featuring numerous industry leaders here. Please contact to reserve one of the limited complimentary places offered.

Register now for the DANA London Conference to ensure you are part of this important event!
