Global Buyers Mission 2023

The in-person 20th annual Global Buyers Mission (GBM) is scheduled for September 2023 in Whistler, BC. The GBM is the largest and most important wood show for international buyers and Canadian sellers of value-added wood products. As BC Wood’s premier business development activity, the GBM helps value-added manufacturers connect with hundreds of qualified international buyers and specifiers of wood products. Sales generated from the GBM have increased nine-fold since the first event in 2004, to over $35 million per year.

Several events for manufacturers, buyers and architects alike will be at the GBM, including:
• Building Connections
• WoodTALKS™ at the GBM
• GBM Tradeshow
