FIEA delivers world class technology events for Australasian forest products companies. It has designed, managed and run these programs for over 15 years. A unique independent platform is provided to showcase new and emerging technologies.

FIEA’s activities are assisted throughout the year through the generous support of FIEA Partners. Their sponsorship and support assists FIEA to bring a wide range of technology events to Australasian forestry and wood products companies each year. The targeted promotional benefits and opportunities for product and service promotion offered through annual sponsorship compared to individual event sponsorship are substantial.

For further information on longer term sponsorship and branding opportunities through FIEA’s range of technology events/resources, contact gordon.thomson@fiea.org.nz or contact one of our FIEA offices.

The Forest Industry Engineering Association (FIEA) runs a regular series of conferences, practical workshops and managed exhibitions. These are run principally in New Zealand and Australia every year with over 500 events run since 1998.

Leading forestry and wood product companies, key product and service suppliers to the industry, researchers and technology providers from throughout the world are involved. The focus is on profiling new and emerging technologies that can be readily adopted by local companies. The very latest innovations, research and operating practices best suited to the local wood resource and the size and maturity of the industry are selected.

FIEA technology events are independent. They have a CLEAR FOCUS – to improve YOUR operating efficiencies, profitability and international competitiveness.



The Forest Industry Engineering Association (FIEA), a division of Innovatek Ltd, has since 1998 been running an extensive series of technical programmes for forestry and wood products companies. Programmes are being run, over 500 at last count, for both New Zealand and Australian operations.

An independent forum for local companies is provided by FIEA to evaluate new technologies. Networking with other companies and leading local and international technology providers is also a significant benefit of these events.

Forestry and wood products companies, largely distant from most major technology providers, can through FIEA, evaluate a wide range of new and emerging technologies suited to their own operations. FIEA is well established as a leading provider of technology transfer services for forest products companies.
