Montréal Wood Convention 2015
A success all the way
The 3rd edition of the Montreal Wood Convention was a great success. Indeed, 650 participants from the wood products industry and over 80 exhibitors responded to the invitation of the organizing associations: the Quebec Wood Export Bureau (QWEB), the Québec Forest Industry Council, the Ontario Forest Industries Association, the Ontario Wood Products Export Association and the Maritime Lumber Bureau. At the same time, the 3rd Canadian Wood Pellet Heating Conference brought together an additional 85 participants for a total of close to 750 attendees.

At the Queen Elizabeth Hotel, the Convention started on the morning of February 18 with conferences on economy and markets. Participants were able to hear David Crowe, chief economist and vice president of the National Association of Home Builders, on the US housing market; Bob Berg, Senior Economist, RISI, on the timber market outlook in North America; and Charles Tardif, vice president of Maibec and member of the Softwood Lumber Board (SLB) on the results of the promotion program led by the SLB in the United States.

On the morning of Thursday, February 19, delegates were invited to attend a technical seminar where renowned manufacturers shared their vision for the future about innovation and technology. The Trade Show was held during the two afternoons of the Convention with the aim to network and develop business relationships.
