May 19, 2023  By  Jennifer Ellson

The B.C. Saw Filers Association Convention and Trade Show is back in Kamloops, B.C. this year on May 26-27. Returning to the Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre, a slew of topics will be discussed at the convention.

“Speakers will talk about innovative tools, methods and ideas pertinent to saw filing,” BCSFA vice-president Scott Courtney tells CFI.

“In the afternoons the trade show will open, and vendors will be welcome to showcase their new equipment, tools and services. Friday evening will have a dinner, as well as entertainment in the form of a comedian followed by a live band,” Courtney explains. 

“It’s the perfect blend of education, business and socialization!”


Agenda highlights
The convention kicks off Friday, May 26, with the trade show beginning at noon and running until 6 p.m. The show will open again Saturday from 1-6 p.m. 

The conference portion of the event will be on both mornings. Courtney is expecting to have speakers talk about the evolution of the sawmill, as well as discussions on supply chain and labour shortage issues, and new technology advancements in the trade.

Friday night will see the usual buffet dinner and entertainment, this year featuring comedian Leland Klassen, followed by a dance with music from a live band.
