All About the Virtual Conference

Why virtual?

As the world’s largest mass timber event we were set to draw ~2,000 people at last year’s conference, with even larger numbers expected for 2021. But due to the ongoing pandemic, an in-person gathering of any reasonable size is not feasible for our conference dates of March 30–April 1. Therefore, our move to a 100% virtual event allows us to produce a safe, cost-effective, and productive meeting and offers a host of exciting opportunities not always available at the in-person event.

NOTE: We plan to produce a hybrid conference in 2022, so an in-person event is still very much in our future!

We’re investing heavily to make the 2021 virtual conference a pivotal investment for your company and an industry-defining event (we truly mean that).

This won’t be just another Zoom meeting…
