Success for Expo Bois et Forêt/Wood & Forest Exhibition 2019
Over 70 exhibitors – 1100 visitors from Prescott-Russell, SD&G, Ottawa and Quebec – 120 wood lots sold at the auction – 24 sponsors – 50 volunteers, most of them members of Boisés Est. And a neighborhood fair atmosphere, felt by exhibitors and visitors alike, despite uncertain weather conditions.
Boisés Est warmly thanks all those who contributed to the success of this event, including the Riceville Agricultural Fair, which lets us use its fairgrounds. We hope that it has been a positive experience for all.
The lists of our sponsors and exhibitors can be found below, as well as a first set of pictures. The auction results will be posted shortly.
