The Global Softwood Log & Lumber Conference on May 8 will again offer attendees a very timely and strategic perspective to better determine global market strengths and identify potential growth opportunities. There will be networking opportunities – last year it attracted 275 delegates from 15 countries.

A key theme this year will be: “Where will the U.S. and China get their incremental wood supplies as both timber and the overall supply chain become much more constrained as demand rebounds?”

There is also a two-day B.C. interior mill tour taking place before the conference (May 5-7) where delegates will have the opportunity to see mills processing mountain pine beetle-killed timber.
