All segments of the wood industry face the challenge of digital adoption and connectivity within your processes to remain competitive and keep up with change.

Come to this session to:

The Bluewater Wood Alliance is the only managed industry-led cluster for the wood industry in Canada. Starting with 7 member companies in Grey/Bruce in 2011, it has grown to 150 member companies and expanded to include all of southwestern Ontario.

It is based on the European clustering model, and is run by manufacturers for manufacturers.
