Wood-based designs to be showcased at upcoming Vancouver awards evening

January 2, 2017 by  

Early this spring, Vancouver will be playing host to a special event that recognizes the contributions made by builders and other professionals who use wood in their designs and projects.

The 2017 Wood Design Awards, which are a part of the Wood Works! program, will bring those who work with wood and those who enjoy the products they craft together in a celebration of this natural building material.

The evening will kick off with a reception where guests will have an opportunity to peruse the project storyboards that have been prepared for each of the nominees. There will be time to socialize and network while enjoying music supplied by a jazz ensemble from the local area. This will be followed by a sit-down dinner and a presentation of the awards to the winners. A company that crafts customized corporate gifts will be able to provide awards and certificates for this type of function.

Tickets are currently available, and those who purchase theirs before February 6 will be able to do so at a discounted rate of $129 each. After that, the price will increase to $149. Reserved tables are also available for larger groups.

The 2017 Wood Design Awards Dinner and reception will be held on March 6 in the Vancouver Convention centre, with registration for the event stating at 4:30 pm. Additional details are available on the Wood Works! website.
