The woodworking community is buzzing about finally having a show specifically for Western Canada’s cabinet manufacturers, residential and commercial furniture manufacturers, custom wood product manufactures, architectural woodworkers and millworkers. Organizers report that interest and participation in Canada Woodworking West are on the rise, from industry associations, exhibitors and visitors alike. Exhibitor confirmations from key players in the western market include Upper Canada Forest Products, Formations, Richelieu, E.Roko, PJ White, Masse Sales, Canadian Woodworker, Clermont’s Ultimate Tool, Multicam and many more. Educational seminars and an expansive exhibit floor will offer extensive opportunities for networking with industry peers. And according to Mike Neeb, show manager for Master Promotions Ltd., endorsements from regional industry leaders – UBC Centre for Advanced Wood Processing, CKCA, FP Innovations, The Wood Manufacturing Council, and AWMAC British Columbia – ensure this will be a must-attend event for the secondary woodworking industry. “We are building on this core group of major exhibitors and associations to ensure a top quality event for our show visitors,” he said. “Canada Woodworking West offers the excitement of a new show in a proven and growing market. Following the success of Canada Woodworking East, which took place in Montreal in September 2014, Canada Woodworking West is expected to attract all the industry’s major exhibiting companies along with thousands of qualified attendees from across Western Canada and the US.”
