Make plans now to join nearly 400 leading overseas manufacturers, importers, U.S. manufacturers, port authorities and shipping companies for the only U.S. convention focused on increasing imports of wood products! The 2007 World of Wood is already creating a buzz with the speaking confirmations of Bill Weaver, President of Cabinet Creek Cabinet Company and current KCMA Chairman of the Board, Hardwood Review Editor George Barrett, and CITES Secretary General Willem Wijnstekers.
“These timely presentations give overseas manufacturers and U.S. importers insight from key wood consuming industries into the trends and key issues on the horizon for 2007,” said IWPA Executive Vice President Brent McClendon. “We’re also very fortunate to have leading officials speaking on new trade and environmental regulations that could cause significant impacts on overseas exporters and their U.S. partners.”
