Quebec’s ‘Wooden’ Solution to Sustainability

The Québec City Convention Centre, in collaboration with the City of Québec, announced that the second World Congress on Mid-and High-rise Wood Buildings will be held in Québec City in the fall of 2019. From September 30 to October 4, Woodrise 2019 will bring together wood construction stakeholders, decision-makers, and professionals to share their knowledge and strengths in order to position wood as a leading construction material for tomorrow’s sustainable cities.

The event is expected to attract over 1,000 international attendees, including some 20 delegations, who will gather to hear keynote speakers and experts in the field discuss topics such as seismic risk prevention and fire safety in wood buildings, the impact of wood on quality of life and comfort, and emerging markets. The theme for Woodrise 2019 is “Building our cities for future generations” and has been jointly organized by FPInnovations (Canada) and Institut technologique FCBA (France).
