LIGNA 2017 in Hannover
22. May 2017 - 26. May 2017
The world’s leading trade fair for machinery, plant and tools for the woodworking and timber processing industry
“LIGNA, which is held at the Hannover Exhibition Center in Hannover, Germany, next runs from 22 to 26 May 2017. The upcoming season will continue LIGNA’s long-standing commitment to presenting future-defining solutions and innovative production equipment for the wood industry – albeit with a revamped layout that will boost efficiency for all trade visitors and provide a more comprehensive, user-centric overview of all key technologies.
The new layout will comprise seven main display categories:
– Tools and Machinery for Custom and Mass Production
– Surface Technology
– Wood-based Panel Production Technology
– Sawmill Technology
– Energy from Wood
– Machine Components and Automation Technology
– Forestry Technology
The move to merge the “Solid Wood Processing”, “Furniture Industry” and “Woodcrafts” (skilled woodworking trades) categories into a new “Tools and Machinery for Custom and Mass Production” category, in particular, has already met with very positive industry feedback. The new category will present the constituent technologies in an integrated manner that more accurately reflects the way in which they are used by their target markets. By clustering allied technologies, the change will shorten visitors’ walking distances between relevant displays and generate synergies with newly created neighboring display areas.
Another change relates to automation technology/machine components and surface technology. These two technology categories have grown in importance at LIGNA over the years and will therefore have their own centrally located display areas from 2017 on.” (Text: LIGNA)
