Digital News Platforms
We publish a range of e-newsletters with the aim to better connect industry with the latest news, technologies, innovation and market intelligence.
Our two major e-newsletters are Friday Offcuts and WoodWeek. Both e-newsletters are read by 10,000 each week and have, for the last 15 years, been leaders in their respective industries for weekly news and current events.
Communication with industry members is a vital element to any organisation and providing a well-run e-newsletter is the best way to keep everyone informed on the current happenings within your industry. E-newsletters are also a great way to bring a community together and help spread the knowledge about new technologies to improve their business.
These digital news platforms are recognised as the leading weekly news sources in the Australian and New Zealand forestry sectors.
We have developed proprietary technology and processes for the creation and management of digital news platforms. We would love to talk to you further about how this could help you and your industry.
For details on advertising in any of our industry newsletters or event sponsorship in general, please contact Gordon Thomson via (+64) 7 921 1384 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Innovatek started in 1998 as a technology transfer event management company and has well over two decades within the industry.
A large part of the initial business has been in running the Forest Industry Engineering Association (FIEA) and an extensive series of technical programmes for forestry and wood products companies. Over 500 programmes throughout New Zealand and Australia have been run to date. These provide an independent forum for local companies to evaluate new technologies.
FIEA is well established as a leading provider of technology transfer services for forest products companies throughout Australasia. It has very strong linkages and partnership arrangements with most major technology providers, equipment suppliers, research institutions and industry associations throughout the region.
Innovatek has since run additional technology transfer events into a number of primary sectors throughout Australasia and, in more recent times, Canada and USA.
Innovatek also publishes the forestry industry’s leading e-newsletters, Friday Offcuts and WoodWeek. Starting back in 2005, Friday Offcuts quickly became the leading source of weekly news and technologies for the forestry industry. This enabled the launch of Friday Offcut’s sister publication, WoodWeek. Both e-newsletters have gone on to lead their particular niches and provide a successful platform for others to utilise the system within their own sectors.
Along with FIEA, we also provide secretarial and management services for the New Zealand based Wood Council, the Southern Wood Council.
