New this year: a seminar on US and international markets for hardwood that attracted nearly a hundred people on March 22. It was determined that demand remains strong and constant with opportunities in emerging markets. The Convention was officially opened Wednesday, March 23 in the morning with conferences on economics, markets and lumber marketing. According to the specialist Carl Grenier, the next Canada-US lumber agreement may be more restrictive than that of 2006. Professor Christian Dussart demonstrated that social medias represent a huge business potential and it is important not to underestimate them.

At lunch on March 23, Earle G. Hall, speaker and prolific writer and entrepreneur in advanced technology, offered a conference entitled "Science of Happiness." Based on his research in organizational psychology, he explained why happiness sells and how to apply and make profitable advanced concepts of happiness. Also, under the theme "Profitable Investments", the technical seminar on March 24 morning hosted the equipment and services leaders of the wood products industry who presented success stories.

The 5th edition of the Montréal Wood Convention will take place from March 28 to 30, 2017 at the Bonaventure Montréal.
