One of the premier events for the state’s forest and wood products industry and of particular significance with 2018 being a state election year, the dinner brings together industry leaders from the forest and wood products sector, covering plantation managers, processors, sawmillers, contractors, and pulp and paper producers.

VAFI CEO Tim Johnston said that the dinner was a once-a-year opportunity for the industry to come together.

“Because our industry is geographically spread throughout the state, this event is a great opportunity for industry participants to network and speak to the many government and opposition MPs who attend,” said Mr Johnston.

“Being five weeks prior to election day, this is the final opportunity for the state’s political parties to promote their policies to our industry, so this should make for an interesting night.

“We have had a diverse and entertaining range of speakers in past years, and 2018 will be no exception.”

Tickets will be available for purchase from VAFI from July. For further information please contact VAFI on 9611 9000 or info@vafi.org.au
