While we hoped that this year we could all get together in person, it will be another virtual, online conference and AGM due to Covid-19. However, that hasn’t stopped us from putting together an impressive series of topics and guest speakers this year.
Together with our media partner, Canadian Biomass Magazine, we have put together a condensed program to take place in short bursts over three days from September 20 to 22, 2021. The live conference will take place over three hours on September 20; the AGM – open to all WPAC members – will be on September 21 for one and a half hours; and there will be a board meeting for one and a half hours on September 22. In addition, we have loads of pre-recorded presentations available for conference registrants.
Although our live conference program is only three hours – including a break at the halfway point – we will still be able to pack in a lot of information. The theme this year is Making a Difference Globally and at Home which reflects the opportunities ahead for our sector as well as the key trends and potential headwinds. Key speakers are being confirmed and topics include:
- Global Market Perspectives
- Trends in Responsible Sourcing
- Innovating our way to a safer, better product
- Getting to Net Zero in Canada with Pellets
- The Power of Pellets in the Emerging Bioeconomy
This year we are not charging a fee to participate. We only ask that participants register to access our amazing content. Although costs are lower than normal, we will still incur expenses, so we are most grateful for our sponsors who are making this event possible.
