TIMBER MART kicks off first hybrid show

TIMBER MART is hosting its first-ever hybrid national buying show today and tomorrow via its virtual cloud-based tradeshow platform, and at the Toronto Congress Centre. In a release, CEO and president Bernie Owens said the group has “applied the best practices from our last two virtual buying shows to this year’s event and maintained our focus on offering a true buying show.”

Members will have 270 vendor booths to explore on the virtual platform and the 70,000-square-foot show floor at the Toronto Congress Centre. New to the event this year is a show app with information like the schedule of events and show floorplan. It also facilitates online chat between attendees and appointment scheduling between dealers and vendors.

Hardlines is on-site and will bring you full coverage of the event in next week’s heart-pounding issue of the Hardlines newsletter. (Still missing out on the industry’s must-have weekly news blast? Sign up to start your four-week free trial today!)
