Two of BC’s wood products associations, the Log and Timber Builder Industry Association and BC Wood, partnered over the weekend to support member companies participating in the BC Log Home show. Fourteen manufacturers, members of the two associations, displayed a range of products including log and timber frame homes, prefabricated homes, doors, windows and flooring to over 10,000 interested and appreciative show attendees.
This year’s show, with a record attendance, was marked by a general improvement in the public’s confidence and attitude toward building. Many of the prospective clients attending the show indicated an intention to build in the next 12-18 months. This positive attitude was a welcome change from the past two years when most prospective clients were taking a wait and see approach.
The BC Log Home show was the second to last tradeshow event in BC Wood’s fiscal year ending on March 31, 2010. BC Wood staff will attend the Cottage Life show in Toronto, March 26-28th. Member companies interested in having their promotional literature at the Toronto show should contact Brian Hawrysh at 604-882-7100 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
