WRLA moves show to Winnipeg

WINNIPEG — The Western Retail Lumber Association (WRLA) has announced it will be moving its annual trade show to Winnipeg in 2021.

The show, which bills itself at the premier LBM show in Canada, will be hosted in Winnipeg in 2021, 2022 and 2023.

“We feel it is important for the WRLA to engage with all of its members from Western Canada, provide venues that present new business development opportunities and experiences that will also help to expand the industry community,” says WRLA President, Liz Kovach. “Winnipeg offers a great combination of location and services that will bring enormous value to the membership attending the annual show while enhancing the community feel of the event as well.”

Proposals from Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon and Regina were considered before the WRLA settled on Winnipeg as its host city. The association is currently working with the Economic Development Winnipeg team to finalize tools and resources to be released in the coming weeks to help support the transition in all aspects.
