Just a reminder, BC Wood is gearing up for our fall shows in Asia. From October 23rd to 25th, we will be simultaneously participating in the legendary Japan Home and Building Show in Tokyo and the China International Exhibition on Housing Industry in Beijing, targeting the emerging market of wood framed construction.

The JHS is a great show for BC Wood members producing millwork, cabinetry, engineered wood, timber frame homes, log homes, 2×4 packaged homes, as well as reman and structural lumber. BC Wood’s Japan Office will once again be organizing a large pavilion on behalf of the Canadian wood industry for this event. This is a great opportunity for members to take advantage of the hot Japanese housing market.

The CIEHI offers the best opportunity in China for Canadian companies looking to export: engineered wood products, timberframe packages, packaged 2×4 and log structures, WRC outdoor products, as well as finishing materials. Its main exhibits include:

  1. Wooden architecture: wooden houses, vacation cabins, wood gazebos & pergolas, and light wood frame & heavy timber structures;
  2. Wooden structural materials;
  3. Wooden structures and equipment; and
  4. Other wood materials: flooring, decking, fencing, stairs, outdoor furniture, etc. Landscape planning, construction, and maintenance: landscape design, golf course design and construction, green roofs, tourism development planning, etc.
