The International Forest Products Transport Association (IFPTA), New York, N.Y., USA, has announced the dates and location for its 2nd South American Regional Seminar. The Seminar will be held September 27 - 28, 2010, at the Sheraton WTC Hotel in Sao Paulo, Brazil. It will feature a two-day program focused on current opportunities and challenges of the continued growth of the South American forest products logistics industry in the past few years. It will include speakers from leading companies in South America and from around the world involved in the transport, handling, and distribution of forest products and related industries.

"Since our first seminar here in 2007, demand for forest products from South America has grown exponentially," said Ana Paula Trilho, South American director of the IFPTA. "This growth, while good for the economy, has brought its own set of challenges, infrastructure issues being at the top of the list."

Registration details, preliminary agenda, and hotel details will be available soon on the IFPTA web site. For information on how to become a sponsor of the seminar, contact Wendy Parsley at wparsley@ifpta.org.
