The 10th annual Global Log & Lumber Conference will be held on June18, 2020


with LIVE Q&A focusing on the Impacts of COVID-19 around the world
As you all know, the COVID-19 virus has changed everyone’s business plans and personal lives in very short order. This includes our Global Log & Lumber Conference that was scheduled for June 17-18 in Vancouver.

We have decided to cancel the physical conference, but since we also understand the dramatic changes that COVID-19 has made to business and markets, this means that there is an even higher interest in sharing strategic and timely industry and market information from around the world. As a result, we are now planning to hold a “Virtual Conference” that will feature pre-recorded presentations distributed to delegates followed by live Question, Answer and Discussion Sessions over a web-based program.

We are currently working on the details and we will announce these next week. Delegates will receive advanced recordings of speaker presentations as well slides prior to the start of the live Q&A sessions. On the conference date (June 18), we will facilitate questions from the delegates to the speakers as well as some additional experts on a live schedule throughout the day. We would also record the question and answer sessions for those that cannot be available to listen in live or where the time zones are not convenient for this.

The new format with reduced prices will be released next week. All registered delegates to the physical conference will be offered a refund or they can apply their payments to the new conference with a partial refund.
We hope to contribute to better global communications in these changing times with the new format of our Global Log & Lumber Conference in June 2020.
