LAVAL, Quebec -- Uniboard, designer and manufacturer of decorative composite wood panels, has announced the company’s first live virtual launch on September 23, 2020.

The virtual event includes a behind-the-scenes tour of Uniboard’s Sayabec mill, as well as an unveiling of the new Press #7, one of the most technologically advanced presses for TFL and high-pressure laminates in North America. Attendees will also view an interactive advance presentation of Uniboard’s upcoming 2021/2022 additions to its design collection called Redefined.

Taking place at Place des Arts, Uniboard’s 20-minute virtual event will broadcast through Yoop, a livestream app offering live audio-visual interaction. The event will be moderated by media personality Isabelle Racicot, a television and radio host.

“As many of our industry’s physical events have been postponed and current conditions have prevented an in-person mill tour, we decided to bring Uniboard to the industry and present a VIP virtual tour of our Sayabec facility and our new Press #7,” said James Hogg, president of Uniboard.

The Uniboard Virtual Launch and New Collection Sneak Peek will be September 23, 2020 at 5 p.m. EDT (English). Reserve your place ahead of time. Register at
