The 16th Annual Global Buyers Mission™ (GBM) planning is officially underway and already we have almost sold out the floorspace with returning wood products manufacturers and suppliers from across Canada.
If you are interested in being a new exhibitor at the GBM in Whistler, you will be joining over 800 delegates including pre-qualified international Buyers and Specifiers. Last year, it was estimated that over $35 million in new business was developed from this event.
Pre-qualified Buyers are expected from Australia, Belgium, Chile, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Jordan, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Philippines, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, the UK, United States, and Vietnam.
