This year, the Woodrise congress will present three plenary sessions under the themes:

  • Unlocking new markets for wood in the built environment
  • Emerging mid- and high-rise timber construction projects worldwide

in addition to seven workshops featuring internationally renowned speakers and presenters.

Canada Pavillion at Woodrise 2023

Participants at the Bordeaux event are invited to visit the Canada Pavillion (Hall 2 C 0402), an exhibition space that will bring together various players in the Canadian wood construction ecosystem to generate synergy among participants and facilitate business meetings and discussions. By bringing together different companies and government agencies under one roof, the Canada Pavillion will offer a unique showcase for the development of their activities, while enabling to keep abreast of the latest developments and research results on an international scale.

Woodrise, an initiative of co-organisers FCBA (France), FPInnovations (Canada), Building Research Institute and the Japan International Association for the Building and Housing Industry (Japan), brings together international speakers to present the various global challenges of mid- and high-rise timber construction and its integration into the concept of sustainable cities. FPInnovations representatives can be met at the booth shared with Woodrise co-organisers (Hall 2 D 0412).

It’s an event not to be missed!
