A few comments, suggestions, and ideas…
Early this week BC Wood is at the UBCM Conference under the sails at the “old” Trade and Convention Centre. The UBCM provides a good opportunity to get in front of municipal councils from across the Province, spreading the word about the business and market development activities BC Wood undertakes on behalf of the value-added forestry sector.
We then pack up our wares and move across the street to the fancy “new” convention centre to participate in the IDS West, interior design show. There, BC Industry that caters to the interior design and architectural millwork communities, will showcase to 10,000+ buyers from across the West Coast of Canada and the United States. These are two very different but equally important events.
Another trade event that should be on the radar for BC Industry is the upcoming IBS Builders Show this January 9 through 11 in Orlando Florida. The IBS is the largest residential and light commercial builders show in the western world with last years attendance topping the 115,000 mark. BC Wood has limited space available at IBS and with the devastating hurricanes that have recently hit the South East and Caribbean, reconstruction will be a high priority.
