Hello Past and Potential Wood Expo Participants,
In the midst of the current provincial public health emergency, we have been trying to determine what form Wood Expo 2020 will take. Currently public events indoor and outdoor must have 50 people or less and this is not expected to change for a year or more. Based on last year’s attendance, by the time we account for vendors and a few of our volunteers to man the door and sanitize surfaces etc. we would be able to have about 20 visitors at a time. Over an 8-hour event that would allow each visitor to stay for about 9 minutes which is clearly not enough time for the kind of experience we want at Wood Expo.
For a period we thought we would not be able to have Wood Expo at all, and we started a conversation with Coast TV about the possibility of doing a televised event, possibly in conjunction with an online auction. Our goal with Wood Expo is to provide an opportunity for woodcrafters and wood artists to connect with our community, to engage the public interest in this craft, and to generate sales as well as inspire each other. My vision of a televised event includes short films with woodcrafters in their workshops and Coast TV is interested in filming these. They would air them all on the day of Wood Expo whether or not we have an online auction, but also periodically before and after so they may be a real asset.
