Forest2Market do Brazil is responsible for the technical organization of the first day of the "HDom Summit - Forest Leaders & Investors Meeting” that will be held on April 10 and 11, 2019 at the Blue Tree Premium Faria Lima Hotel in São Paulo, Brazil.
The event is an international meeting of investors and forest managers where participants will discuss the current state of the forestry sector and ideas related to perspectives, innovations, competitiveness, new investment and the primary challenges for companies that manage forest assets.
"A few years ago, I participated in international forestry investment conference and I always imagined organizing a similar, grandiose, high-quality international event focused on investments in Brazil and Latin America. Since Forest2Market do Brasil is not a company focused on event planning, I proposed the idea to the most respected company in this area, Malinovski, who helped to develop the idea and plan the event," said Marcelo Schmid, director of Forest2Market do Brasil.
In Malinovski's creative conceptualization of the event, it became broader and more comprehensive of the entire forest value chain. In addition to the discussion on forest investments in Brazil and Latin America, the event will also include a full day of lectures and debates directed by leaders of forestry companies in which they will discuss key issues related to forest management in Brazil.
The event will be held in both English and Portuguese and will be attended by speakers from related international investment companies and from some of Brazil’s most productive and renowned companies in the forestry sector. The detailed programming is as follows:
