Jan. 30, 2018 - In Sven Gustavsson’s words, “if you’re anyone in the wood products trade in North America,” the Montreal Wood Convention is a must-attend.
“The fact that 20-25 per cent of the people there are American buyers and another 15 per cent are the major Canadian buyers of our products – it’s that interaction which is at the core of the entire event,” said Gustavsson, who is softwood manager at the Quebec Wood Export Bureau.
The convention, which is taking place March 20-22 at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth in Montreal, includes a seminar examining the current market and the U.S.-Canada trade dispute.
There will also be a focus on the aftermath of hurricanes in the southern U.S. after significant damages in 2017, and what that will mean in terms of building codes and demand for forest products.
This year’s technical seminar is about how new technologies could attract and maintain young talent in the forest industry.
And the hardwood seminar will feature a market outlook for the entire hardwood sector, which is mainly in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes.
There were approximately 1,000 attendees last year and Gustavsson and his team expect a similar turnout for 2018, if not more.
