16th Annual Global Buyers Mission™ – International Buyers

Welcome to the 16th Annual Global Buyers Mission™ – the event to find new sources of high quality, competitively priced wood products, while reconnecting with your current suppliers and socializing with your peers.  The 2019 event is scheduled for Wednesday, September 11th to Friday, September 13th and is set once again in spectacular Whistler Village, British Columbia. 

As a pre-qualified buyer, your $295 CAD registration fee includes Vancouver/Whistler return transportation; and all meals and networking receptions during the event. 

The 2018 Global Buyers Mission (GBM) welcomed over 820 delegates to this invitation-only event, designed to bring together international buyers of wood and value-added wood products, with Canadian manufacturers. 

This International Event continues to be a great success for buyers and suppliers alike, with estimates last year of over $35 million in new business developed. 

You will have the opportunity of meeting with Canadian manufacturers of products that include engineered wood products; remanufactured items and components; pre-fabricated housing and structures; log / post & beam / timberframe homes and structures; millwork & finished building products; and specialty lumber including Western Red Cedar – all in a comfortable, networking environment. 

If you are still not sure and have questions regarding the benefits of attending the event, or to receive your registration link, please contact us directly at gbm@bcwood.com or call 604-882-7100
