fibreco_overviewMarch 8, 2013, Vancouver - Pellet producers and industry colleagues are in for a treat this November, as the Wood Pellet Association of Canada (WPAC) will host its expanded AGM in Vancouver.

The event, held November 18-20 in scenic downtown Vancouver, will grow on the format adapted for WPAC's last AGM held in Quebec City in late November 2012. It will include a pre-conference tour of bioenergy facilities, an ice breaker reception, a one-day conference focused on the pellet export market, and the WPAC AGM itself.

For the first time it will also include a small number of value-priced table-top exhibit opportunities (priority will be given to WPAC associate members), as well as a few sponsorship opportunities. Details on these will be announced in early April. Contact Ross Anderson to be added to the event's email contact list. As the official media partner of WPAC, Canadian Biomass will work with the association to develop and promote the event through both its domestic and international audiences.

"We're excited to see our industry grow, and with it our annual meeting," says WPAC executive director Gordon Murray. "It will be a gathering of all the key players in the Canadian wood pellet sector, with a focus on growing our traditional and new export markets."
