The WOODRISE brand has created a real collective dynamic on economic development and has become an international reference.
The 1st international congress on mid and high-rise wood construction "WOODRISE" was organised in Bordeaux in 2017 by FCBA, in partnership with FP Innovation (Canada) and the Building Research Institute (Japan).
The event brought together public and private contracting authorities with manufacturers and builders and attracted nearly 1500 participants from all over the world.
Building on this success, the congress moved to Quebec City for its 2nd edition in 2019, with the same attendance rates as in 2017 and an increase in international attendance. The 3rd edition, which was held in Kyoto in 2021, had a total attendance equivalent to the previous editions, despite the context of the COVID 19 health crisis.
