Inspiring wood innovation since 2012
Since 2012, our monthly events have been inspiring individuals with a diverse range of wood-related topics. These gatherings serve as a dynamic space where informal conversations transform into the products, companies, and services that are participating in the industry today. Hosted across Vancouver and in Victoria, TWIG's events are tailored for those engaged in the wood industry, aiming to advance the use of local fiber and foster connections in their local regions.
For entrepreneurs and company owners, our events offer a platform to expand networks, meet new people, and discover solutions for ongoing projects. Likewise, employees have the opportunity to connect with industry peers, deepening their knowledge of BC's wood sector. At TWIG, these events are a concerted effort to build a localized network of wood innovators, creating a space where knowledge is shared, and new ideas come to life. Whether you invite a friend, bring a colleague, take a meeting, or show up alone, our events invite you to listen, learn, and find comfort in passionate discussions about wood and the future of our forests.
