WPAC annual pellet conference goes virtual on September 22

The Wood Pellet Association of Canada (WPAC) has announced that this year's edition of its annual pellet conference will be held virtually on September 22, 2020.

“Due to COVID-19, we are holding this year’s WPAC Conference and AGM as an on-line event. Hopefully, by next year we will be able to hold a physical event again so that we can reconnect face to face and enjoy all the social activities that are traditionally part of our conference,” said Gordon Murray, Executive, Wood Pellet Association of Canada (WPAC).

Together with media partner, Canadian Biomass Magazine, WPAC has put together a condensed program to take place in short bursts over three days from September 22 to 24, 2020. The live conference will take place over three hours on September 22; the AGM – open to all WPAC members – will be on September 23 for one and a half hours; and there will be a board meeting for one and a half hours on September 24.

Although our live conference program is only three hours – including a break at the halfway point – we will still able to pack in a lot of information. We will cover global and domestic pellet markets, WPAC’s new sustainability messaging initiative, recommendations for policy changes to improve domestic wood pellet consumption, progress on reforming Canadian biomass boiler pressure regulations, and making our industry safer by implementing critical control management. We will leave plenty of time for questions and answers after each presentation, said Gordon Murray.

In addition, a number of pre-recorded presentations will be available for conference registrants.

This year we are not charging a fee to participate. We only ask that participants register to access our amazing content. Although costs are lower than normal, we will still incur expenses, so we are most grateful for our sponsors who are making this event possible, ended Gordon Murray.
