September 30 – October 3, 2019, Quebec City, Canada, will host the second edition of the Woodrise, an international congress that brings together all the main stakeholders, decision-makers and professionals involved in mid-rise and high-rise building construction. The Program Committee, composed of industry members from various sectors, has been active for many weeks now in order to present a program that will meet or even surpass the participants’ expectations.
Building our cities for future generations
The theme of the 2019 edition of this Congress is “Building our cities for future generations”. Participants will have the opportunity to hear two introductory presentations and take part in three plenary sessions on issues related to wood construction worldwide. The third day will also offer participants various technical workshops on the following topics:
– Acoustic and vibration performance
– Prevention of seismic risk
– Fire safety
– Forest resources and wood products
– Asian construction market: R&D and market
– Durable building enclosure design
Once again this year, the organizers are particularly proud to present a B2B inter-professional trade show that will give those interested an opportunity to exchange ideas with potential collaborators and business partners. The last two days of the congress will be devoted to field visits.
Throughout the event, participants will have the chance to visit the booths of the various exhibitors, consult the poster sessions and visit the Woodrise-cecobois professionals’ competition.
