All major sawmilling companies in addition to leading tech providers from throughout Australasia, North America and Europe converged on Melbourne and Rotorua.

In September 2017, WoodTECH 2017 will again be running.

“Again, it’s a who’s who of international saws and sawmilling technology that will be travelling into Australasia,” FIEA Director, Brent Apthorp said.

“In addition to new and emerging technologies being showcased, what makes WoodTECH 2017 so special this year is the practical workshops that have been set up for local sawmills.”

The event runs in Melbourne on 20-21 September and then again in Rotorua on 26-27 September.  For full details on the two-yearly WoodTECH 2017 series visit
