Why Sponsor

Every year the SFI Annual Conference is the must attend event for those who want to engage in discussions with some of the foremost thought leaders in the forest sector. Network with people from the conservation, community and economic sectors who care about the future of forests. Past attendees include CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, conservationists and community leaders, indigenous representatives, forest managers, university faculty and students, government officials, and many more.

This year’s conference theme – Forests. A Way of Life – will highlight how we all depend on forests whether we are harvesting professionals, landowners, producers, customers, Indigenous peoples or people using forests for recreation. To enjoy our shared quality of life, we need to ensure our forests are responsibly managed, so we have clean air, clean water, biodiversity, sustainable communities and forest products that improve our quality of life.

Your sponsorship ensures the 2017 SFI Conference will continue to deliver dynamic speakers, invaluable networking opportunities and sessions offering engaging discussions around this shared theme. Contact SFI Inc. to secure your sponsorship today!
