DEMO International® 2024 Heads to the Nation's Capital!

DEMO International® will take over the Ottawa/Gatineau area, September 19-21, 2024. A world-class event for the forestry industry, this edition will be hosted by SBC Cedar (SBC) on one of their forest properties in Venosta, Quebec.

Typically occurring only every four years in different regions across the country, the 2024 edition will mark the 14th edition of DEMO® International.
