Join leaders from the forestry and timber industry for a two-day event focused on the key issues facing the sector, new innovations in machinery and research, and exploring opportunities for future growth.
The Confor Woodland Show is a place for anyone interested in trees and wood to hear about the latest products and services, receive practical advice, network with peers, and enjoy the demos and seminars on offer.
Held this year at the Bath & West Showground on 21-22 September, the Show promises a valuable snapshot of the current state of the industry, whether you’re a part of it already or are looking to find out more.
Confor is the voice for forestry and wood-using businesses in the UK, and our tent is set to be the central hub of the Show, bringing together big names and influencers to discuss topics like agroforestry, bioplastics, trends in the forest marketplace, and modern management techniques. This year’s speaker line-up includes representatives from DEFRA, Forest Research, FSC UK, Rainbow Professional, CSX Carbon and more!
Richard Hunter, Technical and Industry Support Manager at Confor, said: “After a four-year break, it’s great to have the Confor Woodland Show retaking its place in the sector’s calendar. With a move to the Bath & West Showground, we hope that our members and colleagues from across the industry will agree the Show has returned bigger and better than before. Everyone at Confor is excited to welcome old and new faces back in September. We are immensely grateful to our sponsors and exhibitors for making our excellent programme of discussions, panels and demonstrations possible.
“This is an extremely important time for forestry in the UK. The benefits that woodlands, forestry and timber can provide for the economy, for rural communities, and for the mitigation of climate change present unique challenges opportunities for the sector. Bringing leaders in the industry together to share knowledge and ideas is now more important than ever.”
Exhibitors will include manufacturers and distributors of forestry machinery like Fuelwood, Jas P Wilson Approved Hydraulics, Lister Wilder, DJB Machinery and Wood-Mizer UK among others. Forest advisory and management services, nurseries, wildlife and conservation bodies, suppliers of wood heating systems and woodland craft workers will also be attending, ensuring there will always be something to draw your attention.
