The Wood Solutions Fair is returning to Toronto on Nov. 2 with expert speakers from Sweden, the UK, the US, and Canada, the Canadian Wood Council (CWC) says.
The day-long event presented by Ontario Wood WORKS! and the CWC, combines an industry tradeshow with a seminar program with wood design experts from across Canada and around the world.
There will 17 sessions in a program designed to meet the needs of a diverse audience of design, development and construction professionals.
The presentations range from inspirational to technical; topics include acoustics, CLT design provisions, mass timber assemblies, mid-rise construction, low-carbon solutions, and award winning wood buildings. One highlight of the program is a panel discussion featuring Swedish developer Folkem, a company that only builds in wood.
