Share this story

Organizers of Salon Industriel du Bois Ouvré (SIBO) are now accepting exhibit space applications for the event that is re-launching Oct. 27-29.
SIBO has been an important event for Quebec’s secondary wood products industry and will return this year to the Centrexpo Cogeco in Drummondville, Quebec.
The three-day show will provide an exclusive opportunity for manufacturers and distributors of woodworking machinery, tooling, software, cabinet hardware, lumber and board products, and much more to connect with manufacturers representing Quebec’s $8.2 billion wood products economy.
“Finally, Quebec will have an industrial woodworking show,” said Harry Urban, SIBO show manager. “We’re pleased that exhibit inquiries and sales have really started to pick up now that the apparent end of the pandemic is upon us.”
CCI Media, owners of SIBO and the Woodworking Machinery & Supply Conference & Expo (WMS), had planned to stage the first SIBO in more than a decade in April of 2020. The grave uncertainties created by the outbreak of Covid in North America prompted the show to be cancelled.
“While the pandemic has stymied in-person events around the globe for the past two years, it has not prevented the Quebec wood products industry from growing,” said Urban. “Nor has it stopped the development of new technology, supplies, and materials. SIBO 2022 will serve as an important gathering place for industry suppliers to showcase three years’ worth of new product introductions.”
In addition to the three-day exhibition, Urban said SIBO will feature a diverse educational curriculum focused on management and technology issues.
“We are working closely with universities, trade associations and other industry partners to present important topics like finishing advancements, workforce development and implementing advanced technologies including Industry 4.0 and artificial intelligence is it applies to the woodworking industry,” Urban said.
“Our goal is to provide Quebec’s wood product manufacturers, both large and small, with the latest products and information that will help them improve their operational efficiencies and increase their bottom lines.”
