2 August, 2016

With about 7 months until the International Woodfiber Resource and Trade Conference, I am excited to announce a program full of high level speakers from around the world. The event will take place from February 13-15 at the Furama Resort in Da Nang, Vietnam. Known by many long-term attendees as "The Woodchip Conference," this unique conference is the only one that focuses on the international trade in woodchips and biomass, covering the entire supply chain from plantation forest through ocean transport and to overseas end-users. The past several conferences (Savannah in 2015, Chile in 2014, Turkey in 2013 and Singapore in 2011) attracted professionals who are actively involved in this trade from more than 30 different countries.
