Most major sawmilling companies from around New Zealand will be coming into Rotorua for the two-yearly technology and equipment event, WoodTECH 2019.
It runs on 11-12 September. To build on the number of wood processors that will be in town on Tuesday 10 September, the Wood Processors and Manufacturers Association (WPMA) will also be running a Bay of Plenty Regional Meeting at the hotel venue, the Distinction Rotorua Hotel.
The theme for the evening meeting is; “The challenge of maintaining international competitiveness in New Zealand’s wood industry”. In April, WPMA hosted its National Conference in Christchurch – “Wood manufacturing matters – especially in the regions” – WPMA has now moved on to its Regional Meeting Programme.
The meetings will be highlighting how industry and government are tackling trade barriers aiming to create fairer international competition. They will also present WPMA’s research looking at how government can play a more supportive role in NZ’s wood manufacturing sector.
So, if you’re a WoodTECH 2019 delegate who will be in Rotorua the night before the conference or a wood processor or manufacturer in the area, come and join us for drinks and canapes to network with New Zealand’s industry leaders in architecture, engineering, manufacturing and construction.
WPMA are hosting a cocktail function and regional meeting. The event starts at 5.30pm and is likely to conclude around 8.00pm.
