Wood Product Producers meet in Whistler

Date: September 2023

The 20th Annual Global Buyers Mission, hosted by BC Wood in Whistler, BC in September, was a great success with 700 delegates from all over the world in attendance.

This event provides Canadian wood product manufacturers a platform to expand their export opportunities by connecting them with buyers and suppliers from over 15 countries.

The Opening Ceremony of this year’s GBM was graced by the Honourable Premier Eby, who was the special guest speaker. This was the first time a Premier of BC has officially opened a GBM.

Sunrise Kitchens participated in the tradeshow and also took part in the Building Connections program, which offers opportunities for focused time to develop new business.

During the event, we had the honor of meeting Jagrup Brar, the BC Minister of State for Trade, and discussed strategies to strengthen international partnerships.
