Our events support innovation in the biggest way. It's where new connections are made, conversations take place and action is inspired. Join our events to stay informed and engaged with the evolution of BC's value-added wood industry and the creators and innovators that are driving it.
We've been doing monthly events since 2012 to inspire people with a range of topics that relate to wood, and to meet the diversity of people that contribute to the value-added industry. We have seen informal conversations transform into products, companies and services that exist today. TWIG hosts events across Vancouver and in Victoria, created for people engaged in the wood industry and looking to advance the use of local fibre and connect with others. For entrepreneurs and company owners its a place to expand your network, meet new people and find solutions for the projects your working on. Our events are a place for employees of companies to connect with others across the industry to deepen their knowledge and understanding of BC's industry.
We do these events to bring people together to enhance a localized network of wood innovators, and to create a space of belonging where knowledge can be shared and new ideas can be realized. Invite a friend to our events, bring a colleague, take a meeting or show up alone, listen and find comfort in hearing people talk about wood more than you do.
