High value. Unsurpassed networking. Business-building.
You’ll find a high ROI at the 6th biennial Small Log Conference, which showcases the very best in small-diameter timber utilization, wood-based biofuels, and wood exports. Get maximum value for your event dollar on March 13-15, 2013 in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho at the Coeur d’Alene Resort.
Small diameter timber utilization and woody biomass
The first of our three focus areas consists of the Small Log Conference’s traditional core content: the key issues surrounding small diameter timber and woody biomass, and how they affect lumber mills, machinery manufacturers, conservationists, forest restoration, pellets, biomass use, technology and more.
Last fall, USDA-NIFA issued a $120 million grant to the Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance (NARA) and other university-led biofuels efforts to research the viability of creating a sustainable biofuels industry for aviation (and important co-products) and other uses from wood feedstocks. NARA and other universities/associations will use the Conference as a platform to discuss their progress and to network with attendees.
Wood exports, and Chinese/Korean softwood lumber buyers
A partnership with the Montana office of the World Trade Center (MWTC) and other trade experts will help you discover how you can take advantage of wood exports and new markets overseas. We will also host a delegation of Chinese and S. Korean log and lumber buyers at the conference to meet attendees and foster quality relationships that can lead to new business in Asia’s high-growth markets.
