GBM Update

The 2009 Global Buyers Mission is shaping up to be another great event!  I’m pleased to say that our partnership with the Cedar Shake & Shingle Bureau and the Western Red Cedar Lumber and Export Associations has strengthened our abilty to bring the important US buyers to our event, particularly given these challenging economic times.

We’re also thrilled to see such a strong interest from our off-shore recruiting efforts and expect to surpass our target of 150 pre-qualified international buyers from Australia, China, Europe, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Taiwan and Vietnam.

Roy Manion has already indicated in his Architects Update that we have pretty much over-sold the Architects/Designers Program for the GBM, and have a waiting list for interested participants.

We’re happy to announce that Minister Pat Bell will be joining us to officially open the event Friday morning and welcome the participants on behalf of the Province of BC.

If you haven’t registered yet but are interested in participating, please contact me ASAP in the office at 604-882-7100, or by email to rwalker@bcwood.com.    Stay tuned for regular updates…
