Topics

Are you a manufacturer or researcher offering an innovative solution to modernize harvesting operations and increase their profits? Are you willing to educate an exclusive group of contractors from across Canada?

Send us your proposal to present at OptiLog – Forestry Tech Forum 2022 – the first in-person event of its kind.

OptiLog is a one-day education forum focused on the future of logging. Speakers will present on innovative forestry-specific solutions that are poised to change how we log in Canada. Faced with environmental and demographic challenges that are here to stay, contractors must innovate and adapt to survive.

Taking place in Kelowna, B.C., on June 8, OptiLog is a time-effective and affordable learning and networking opportunity, with registration restricted to logging contractor owners and operators, forest agreement/license holders, researchers, and consultants.
