BC Wood and six member companies exhibited at MAGNA EXPO MUEBLERA INDUSTRIAL trade fair in Mexico City, January 17-20, 2018.

There were 186 exhibitors featuring technology, machinery and material supply for the forestry, woodworking, and furniture manufacturing industries. The trade fair was combined with the Furniture show MAGNA EXPO MOBILIARIO E INTERIORES . It was attended by 8,000 industry professionals, and visitors to the BC Wood were mostly carpenters, designers, architects, and some distributors.

The purpose of the BC Wood exhibit was to continue profiling the presence of BC Wood members and their products in the Mexican market, and to expand business connections in the Mexico City region. A half day workshop was also conducted at the trade show by BCWood, The Canadian Consulate Mexico, and COMACO on the topic of “Design and Construction of Wood Structures”. In conjunction with the trade fair, member participants were busy with a full week of business to business meetings with qualified customers in Mexico City, Guadalajara, and Monterrey.
