Mark the date into your diary. Yes, it’s that time again. The forestry awards programme for the lower South Island is running again in 2019. This will be the fifth major awards evening for the industry in the lower South Island.

Feedback after last year’s awards was excellent. The turnout each year continues to be by far, the largest annual gathering of forestry and wood products companies, contractors and transport operators from throughout the region. Every year, well over 350 people from the industry attend.

The 2019 Southern Wood Council (SWC) Forestry Awards evening is shaping up again to be a huge night out for the industry across Southland, Otago and South Canterbury. It’s being run by the Southern Wood Council in conjunction with the industry training organisation, Competenz. It’s also being supported by all major forestry companies and key suppliers to the industry from throughout the region.

What’s being planned?

  • When: 5.30-9.30pm, Friday 24 May 2019. Mark the date now into your diaries.
  • Where: Corporate Lounges, Fourth Floor, Forsyth Barr Stadium, Dunedin.
  • Format: Pre-award drinks and nibbles, awards ceremony, post award drinks and catering.
  • Awards Presentations: As well as networking, recognising and awarding certificates to those that have achieved National Forestry qualifications over the past year, announcements and the awarding of nine major forestry awards for 2019, special presentations by forestry and sporting greats are also planned as part of the evening. Details will follow.
