ForestTECH 2021 Rescheduled to Early 2022

October 27, 2021

By: The Working Forest Staff



ForestTECH is this region’s most popular annual independent forestry technology series. As detailed to all registered ForestTECH 2021 delegates on 19 October, the decision was made to postpone by several months, the running of this year’s forest technology update.  

Why? The uncertainty still around the evolving Covid situation in New Zealand and safety concerns for those traveling into Rotorua to attend the conference, workshops, and exhibitions scheduled to run on 23-24 November, has forced this decision. The event (now renamed ForestTECH 2021/22) will run instead from Wednesday 23 – Thursday 24 February 2022. For presenters, registered delegates and exhibitors, all felt that a face-to-face meeting was far more preferable to taking the whole event online.


The Good News  


1) The two-day conference programme at this stage is unchanged. In addition to advances being made in remote sensing, data capture and forest inventory, the very latest developments in forest establishment, mechanized planting, and automated silviculture will be covered, as planned. Click here for programme details.

2) The three pre-conference workshops/meetings planned to run the day before the conference, will all still be run as scheduled. They will now run on Tuesday 22 February 2022Click here for details on all three.

3) New Zealand foresters can book with far more confidence, with expectations that the Covid situation in late February 2022, will have largely resolved itself with regards to travel and meetings.

4) Virtual registrations for those joining the Rotorua event remotely can still be made. At the time of postponing in mid-October, registrations from delegates from 13 different countries had already been received. So, it’s certainly being eagerly awaited and will be viewed around the globe.
