OptiSaw returns to Montreal!

July 7, 2016 – The one-day OptiSaw workshop returns to Montreal as part of a week showcasing the latest in sawmilling technology.

July 7, 2016  By  Brandi Cowen

OptiSaw focuses on the future of optimization and automation in sawmilling, including challenges and opportunities on the cutting edge of this side of the industry. It offers a time-effective and affordable learning and networking opportunity for those driving the future of sawmilling in your operation.

The event is set for Nov. 4, just after InterSaw, at the Montreal Airport Marriott Hotel. The venue is right in the terminal, so there’s no need for a rental car.

This year’s OptiSaw West in Vancouver sold out all 10 available sponsorships, and the Montreal event is expected to do the same. The workshop has already attracted the BID Group of Companies as Platinum sponsor, and JoeScan and HewSaw as Gold sponsors. Autolog is also signed on as Lunch sponsor.
