Transforming New Zealand

We are the industry voice advocating for wood as the key to New Zealand's economic and sustainable future

Fieldays at Mystery Creek June 2024

WPMA were part of the Forestry Hub at Fieldays 2024

This is the first time WPMA has been an exhibitor with a key goal of wider industry engagement and promotion for our members.

We talked and advocated to many interesting people, including members, non-members, wider primary industry, the general public and politicians.

106,000 people attended Fieldays, with visitors navigating a mix of sun, clouds and rain, reflecting the adaptability and spirit of the community. 

A constructive and positive event for WPMA.
