This October, organizers of Canada Woodworking East (Bois ouvré de l’est du Canada), the country’s bilingual show for the cabinet and furniture industry, announced that the event would be relocating Saint-Hyacinthe, QC, for its next edition. To date, say organizers, the move has received much praise from those in the industry. “Since we announced the move, positive feedback has been coming in,” said show manager Mike Neeb. “The industry is excited about the new location and the sales are proving that exhibitors are on board; over twice the amount of booth space has been sold compared to this time two years ago.” 2018 marks the third edition for this biennial woodworking industry event, which will take place October 24 and 25, 2018, at the BMO Centre at Espace Saint-Hyacinthe. Familiar to veterans of the woodworking industry, the event’s new home in Saint-Hyacinthe is easy to access and features 60,000 sq ft of dedicated exhibit space as well as lots of free parking. As Canada’s furniture-producing powerhouse, Quebec is an obvious location to host Canada Woodworking East. The show will be attended by members of the secondary woodworking industry from across Quebec and Eastern Canada, including cabinet manufacturers, furniture manufacturers, architectural woodworkers, millworkers, custom wood product manufacturers and more.
