 REGISTRATION NOW OPEN

February 1st & 2nd, 2017    L.V. Eberhard Center, Grand Rapids, MI

Michigan Forest Bioeconomy Conference

As our society shifts away from fossil fuel supported materials and industries, renewable alternatives in energy and materials will provide sustainable, responsible and cost effective options. While the forest has long been an important source of renewable materials and energy, innovating to meet and create new markets that benefit local communities is vital in the transition to a bioeconomy.

Why attend?

For information- To inform and educate yourself on the forest bioeconomy and it’s potential to expand existing and create new business opportunities.
For networking- To make connections among wood processing companies and manufacturing entrepreneurs in transportation, medical, composites, chemical and construction industries.
We expect strong engagement from the forest products industry, pulp and paper industry, furniture industry, government, chemical sector, financial sector, academia, construction sector, and local communities.   The conference will start the process of facilitating inter-business relationships that will help drive future projects in 3 key focus areas: 1. Wood Fiber Innovation   2. Mass timber buildings   3. Wood recycling
