Canada Woodworking East 2014
Montréal, QC – Canada Woodworking East (Bois ouvré de l’est du Canada), Quebec and Eastern Canada’s only bilingual secondary wood event, was held for the first time at Montreal’s iconic Olympic Stadium September 26-27, 2014.
This new show was held concurrently and co-located at Olympic Stadium with InterSaw, the international sawmilling expo, and BiomassExpo, featuring the latest biomass equipment. Combined, the shows welcomed close to 4,000 buyers, with 2,209 visitors specifically for Canada Woodworking East and 1,620 for InterSaw/BiomassExpo.
“Visitors were lined up out the door of the facility waiting for the show to open on Friday morning,” said Mike Neeb, Show Manager. “Over the two days, thousands of secondary woodworkers attended the show. Opening day traffic exceeded everyone’s expectations and confirmed that the Quebec/Eastern Canadian market was ready for this event.”
Reports indicate that exhibitors were pleased with the number and quality of visitors, and they are already looking forward to the next edition of Canada Woodworking East in 2016…
