CMO Conferencing

Planning is well underway for Focus on Forestry 2017, organised by CMO, NMMU and the ICFR.

Focus on Forestry will now be presented every second year – alternating between KwaZulu Natal and Mpumalanga, South Africa. Hosting Focus every second year will allow us to offer you an event that will add more value from South Africa in particular and Africa in general, and allow equipment manufacturers and service providers to invest in good exhibitions and field demonstrations.

Focus on Forestry now has a wider scope of including silviculture, fire management and forest engineering.

The 2017 theme is: “Harvesting, silviculture and fire management systems for a restructured forest industry”

Focus on Forestry 2017 is a larger and improved conference, exhibition and demo, aimed at the entire forestry value chain and caters for forestry role-players from across the Africa. Our target market remains primarily for the forestry manager, contractor, equipment supplier and related role-players.

Date: 19 to 21 of April 2017

Location: KwaZulu Natal (close to Pietermaritzburg), South Africa
