The count­down to the Vic­to­rian As­so­ci­a­tion of For­est In­dus­tries [VAFI] An­nual In­dus­try Din­ner 2017, is on, with tick­ets for the event on sale now.

Tim John­ston, CEO of VAFI, said this year the din­ner, be­ing held on Fri­day 17 Novem­ber, will be a great cel­e­bra­tion of the hard work that goes on ev­ery day in the for­est, fi­bre and wood prod­ucts in­dus­try.

“Last year we paid trib­ute to the his­tory of the in­dus­try and the as­so­ci­a­tion, but this year we are fo­cused on the fu­ture and the op­por­tu­ni­ties for growth across the board,” he said.

The VAFI An­nual In­dus­try Din­ner show­cases the Vic­to­rian for­est and wood prod­ucts in­dus­try and its im­por­tance to key gov­ern­ment and po­lit­i­cal rep­re­sen­ta­tives, and a range of in­dus­try stake­hold­ers. It is a chance for in­dus­try to come to­gether to net­work and en­joy a night of cel­e­bra­tion.

“I would to par­tic­u­larly thank our Gold Spon­sor, Aus­tralian Pa­per, for their sup­port of the din­ner, as well as event spon­sors Ryan & McNulty Sawmillers, our Award spon­sor, First Su­per and our ta­ble spon­sors, the Vic­to­rian State Gov­ern­ment, VicForests, ForestWorks, AFPA, and AE Gib­son. We could not do it with­out each and ev­ery one of them.

“I en­cour­age ev­ery­one to buy a ticket and come along to the VAFI An­nual In­dus­try Din­ner this year. Help us to cel­e­brate the in­dus­try whilst catch­ing up with friends and col­leagues. This in­dus­try is a great com­mu­nity and the VAFI team is proud to work for it,” he said.
