NB, Canada (PRWEB) January 31, 2014
Global forest industry leaders will gather in Vitória, Brazil, April 1-2, 2014, for the Business of Forestry Conference, highlighting economic growth, environmental sustainability and getting the best value from our forests.
The invitation to attend the conference was issued jointly today by the three major sponsors, INFLOR Consultoria e Sistemas of Brazil, esri International and Remsoft of Canada.
Expert presenters and business leaders will discuss best practices, latest trends and sustainable management with the audience, expected to include about 200 individuals and companies in the global forest industry.
The full agenda is still in preparation but as of today companies such as, CMPC (Compañía Manufacturera de Papeles y Cartones), Eldorado, Weyerhaeuser Solutions, and Fibria will be presenting. It was confirmed today that Brent Keefer, Director of Resource Planning and Investment Strategy, Hancock Timber Resource Group, one of the largest timberland investment managers in the world, based in Boston, Massachusetts, will be a speaker. He will focus on how technology can mitigate risk by connecting timberland investment issues (investment risk) with resource planning technology.
“We know that risk management is a priority concern of our global clientele,” said Andrea Feunekes, co-founder and co-CEO of Remsoft. “We heard this clearly when we held a risk management discussion session for company executives at Remsoft’s 2013 Users Group Conference in Canada last September. Mr. Keefer’s topic is timely and important in today’s forestry environment where everything from global economics to natural disasters is making risk management increasingly difficult. He will bring the firsthand experience of the Hancock Timber Resource Group—which uses information technology extensively in its planning processes—to the conference audience.”
Niva Vilela, CEO at Inflor, says the Business of Forestry Conference will attract two different audiences—industry executives who will be drawn by case studies to be presented and operational people who will benefit from the planned technical presentations. “We are pleased to be holding the event in Vitória which is close to important players in the industry” he says. “This will be a good opportunity for networking and experience sharing.”
