Global Buyers Mission Update

Posted by Randi Walker
April 30th, 2010

Welcome to the 7th annual Global Buyers Mission™ – a three-day, invitation only networking/tradeshow event developed to bring together pre-qualified international buyers of wood products from around the world, with Canadian manufacturers of products that included finished materials, building supplies and remanufacturing products.

BC Wood has once again partnered with the Cedar Shake & Shingle Bureau (CSSB) and the Western Red Cedar Lumber & Export Associations (WRCLA/EA) to deliver Canada’s largest value-added wood products event.

We will be back at the beautiful Whistler Conference Centre and have negotiated great hotel rates for you at the Delta Whistler Village Suites.

Our buyer recruiting will bring distributors, contractors, builders, architects, and developers from around the world. They are all pre-qualified by our Canada Wood in-market representatives and Canadian Embassies

You will not want to miss this opportunity to showcase your products to over 200 pre-qualified international wood products buyers and North American Architects, Designers & Engineers!

Exhibit space is limited and will be available on a first-come/first-served basis. If you haven’t already registered, sign-up now to avoid disappointment!
