AUSTimber2020 countdown on in earnest
The Australian Forest Contractors Association (AFCA) has appointed a new AUSTimber2020 Event Coordinator. Business partners Brooke Adams and Kristen Smith have been appointed to the role of Event Coordinator. Together Brooke and Kristen will be responsible for the delivery of the biggest forestry show in Australasia, AUSTimber2020.
Brooke and Kristen have a combined 30 years’ experience in the events industry. Having each worked with several high-profile nonprofit organisations, they have extensive experience coordinating a diverse range of national and international events.
Brooke and Kristen are passionate about creating a vibrant and engaging program, bringing the forestry community together and ensuring the event has something to offer all those interested in the forest industry.
“We are excited to have engaged an experienced events team with great enthusiasm and ideas and I look forward to working with them to grow AUSTimber2020,” said Stacey Gardiner, General Manager, Australian Forest Contractors Association.
“They have hit the ground running and will be meeting with the AUSTimber Steering Committee shortly to share ideas and take planning of the event forward.”
With the event only just over two years from now, an AUSTimber2020 Launch will be held next month. The Launch will be held on the Flynn Site in Latrobe Valley on Monday 26 March and Brooke and Kristen are focusing their initial energy on finalising arrangements for this date.
They expect to make further announcements shortly detailing the Launch.
