Whistler Conference Centre, Whistler, BC

It’s the time of year when BC Wood ramps up the preparations for the up-coming GBM. What is different this year from the previous three or four is the early strong interest from US lumber wholesalers and building materials distributors. Maybe it is a result of some early advertising we did in US trade publications; the support from the Western Red Cedar Lumber Association in advising their members of the GBM has certainly had a positive impact; or maybe it is just the marked improvement that we have seen in the business climate and attitudes of the US buyers… all probably have combined to have a positive effect on the response we’ve received so far. Whatever the factors, this year we are looking forward to a strong GBM attendance from our friends and customers from south of the 49th.
