Come join us for our 9th Annual Forest Products Forum, the premier conference featuring forward-looking analysis of the wood products, timber and wood biomass sectors.

The FEA Forum takes place on Tuesday, September 17, 2019 at the World Forestry Center, Portland, Oregon

This one-day event will feature industry-leading economists from Forest Economic Advisors (FEA) addressing a wide range of hot-button topics, as well as a variety of outside experts offering their views on the most important issues facing stakeholders in the industry. In addition, the team from FEA will present their North American outlooks.

This year’s Forum will be at the front-end of the Who Will Own the Forest? 15 event. We will provide a full day of analysis on September 17th, followed by the industry’s best-attended cocktail reception at the WFC Discovery Museum.
