This week we have been meeting people who make a living in the forestry sector at Europe’s largest exhibition: APF 2010. The exhibition is held every two years, and this year was held at Cannock Chase in Staffordshire.
We are grateful to our main partner in the myForest Service, ConFor, for allowing us to share their stand and help us promote the service to the industry.
We spoke with many people face to face, and distributed a lot of leaflets. The overall response has been very positive with most people, often being made aware of the service for first time, commending the concept of the service and committing to signing up and ‘joining the woodchain’. It has also been very encouraging to meet a few existing users of the myForest Service.
We look forward to more businesses and woodlands appearing on the myForest maps over the coming weeks. As we stressed to those we met at the APF 2010, we welcome comments and feedback from users. Our ultimate aim is to create a truly useful service for the forestry sector.
