2019 WoodTALKS™ at the GBM

BC Wood’s Annual Global Buyers Mission™ (GBM), featuring WoodTALKS™, designed to enlighten, inform and inspire on the use of wood in design and construction. This 2-1/2 day event is full of opportunities for architects, designers, contractors, developers, public officials and other wood products specifiers to see first-hand what is new in BC’s wood industry, learn, network and catch up with colleagues. 

The GBM is Canada’s largest event of its kind with attendance on an “invitation-only” basis. The GBM brings together those who specify, source and use wood products, with Canadian manufacturers and suppliers. Once again it is set in spectacular Whistler Village, British Columbia.
