Launch of the 2012 Global Buyers Mission™ (GBM)

Posted by Randi Walker
June 13th, 2012

Welcome to the 9th annual Global Buyers Mission™ (GBM) – 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 include finished materials, building supplies, and remanufacturing products. We will be back at the beautiful Whistler Conference Centre and have negotiated great hotel rates for you in Whistler Village.

Our buyer recruiting will bring buyers, distributors, contractors, builders, architects, and developers, all pre-qualified by our Canada Wood in-market representatives and Canadian Embassies from around the world. We have also expanded our Specifiers program to include direct in-booth presentations on Friday afternoon for manufacturers interested in meeting this important audience.

You will not want to miss this opportunity to showcase your products to over 200 pre-qualified international wood products buyers and important specifiers.

Exhibit space is limited and will be available on a first-come/first-served basis. If you haven’t already registered, contact us at for your on-line access code, or call Randi at 604-882-7100 (toll free 1-877-422-9663).
