The theme of the  Michigan Forest Bioeconomy Conference  is “Familiar Stakeholders – New Connections”, which illustrates an important objective of the meeting: to begin connecting traditional forest product industries with a wide variety of Michigan manufacturing sectors, particularly buildings, furnishings, transportation, health and wellness, and chemical products. The conference is designed to inform communities and businesses about the forest bioeconomy, and for MiFBI to receive input from sponsors and attendees to guide future actions and activities.


MIFBI is deeply grateful for the generous sponsorship that made the conference successful and contributes to furthering the mission of MIFBI.
