The first day ended with a networking cocktail featuring a live painting of a local artist. The artwork was part of a draw at the end of the evening. The participants enjoyed this moment of art and relaxation. The next day, the show ended with the first presentation of the Prix Bois Design awards.

 

Continuing training for the development of professionals has been favored from the beginning. It is therefore with the aim of providing a development platform for the Architects and Designers community that a new multidisciplinary competition has emerged this year: the Prix Bois Design awards.

The contest consists of an appeal to designers from the province of Quebec to implement products such as Formica, Husky Plywood, Sublime, Tafisa and / or Uniboard in interior designs.
