March 1st-3rd 2011, BC Wood will coordinate the participation of member companies and other Canadian forest products associations at the Ecobuild in London, United Kingdom. BC Wood members participated in the 2009 Ecobuild show reported considerable success. While not saying that business was easy, the mood was extremely positive highlighting that sustainable construction was an issue that was here to stay for the construction and design community in Europe
The Ecobuild 2011 is expanding and will change locations this coming year to London’s ExCel, a larger and more modern facility. In only its 8th year, this annual event has become the World’s largest conference and trade event devoted to green building, sustainability, and modern methods of construction. It is expected that the March show will draw over 40,000 visitors and with the specialty nature of the show, as many as 10,000 of these visitors are expected from outside the United Kingdom.
The Ecobuild show has dedicated a specific section on the show floor for timber products. This year, BC Wood will be located in this area and it will provide an excellent venue for the promotion of a broad range of timber products and building systems.
