W.I. Media and Wood Industry magazine will conduct the first-ever Wood Industry Manufacturers Roundtable on 9 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017, at the Royal Ambassador Event Centre, just north of the WMS show.
Interested manufacturer-readers may sign up for free admission on a first-come/first-served basis by emailing us, or writing to Roundtable, W.I. Media Inc., Box 84, Caledon, ON L7C 3L7.
To register, please send your name, job title, company, company number of employees, work address, email address and phone number. In addition, you may add one or two questions you would like to hear addressed by other manufacturers from across Canada.
Successful registrants will be supplied with an entry ticket and placed on the attendee’s list, and names will be checked against the list at the door.
Note: unlike other uses, our interest in company size is to try to ensure that our readership, the majority of which are small shops, are fairly represented. The “big guys” already get their share of attention.
The format of the event will be as indicated, except the table(s) may not be round. There will be an opportunity for every attendee to write down a proposed question, either as above, on the registration letter, or at the event, and note paper will be provided. Each question will then be presented by the moderator for response and each member with a response will be provided a chance to speak, as time allows.
This is not an information-harvest for suppliers, associations or the media, and, while the moderator is a journalist by training, he can also protect a source and the commitment to you is that nothing we hear in the room will go outside. It is, from our perspective, confidential, although everybody must understand that we cannot bind you or your associates from talking about it. It’s as confidential as we can make it.
We want to especially thank our many sponsors, who have indicated by their support that they wish this forum to succeed, and we wish to thank all attendees and potential attendees.
Finally, through the participation of our sponsors, we will provide all registered attendees with a swag bag, the contents of which remain to be determined. Suppliers interested in sponsorship: Please see info here.
