With a new layout concept for LIGNA 2017, the show’s display categories have been reorganized to bring them more into line with changing market needs. Integrated woodworking, intelligent monitoring, predictive maintenance, smart production, the trend towards individualized products, machine multi-functionality and the use of high technology: these are not just a question of business size.
SMEs are also investing in automated processes and intelligent networks. We have updated the format to reflect this important trend – and the success of LIGNA 2017 shows that we got it right. More display area than ever before, and a broader international mix of visitors and exhibitors.
For anything to do with woodworking and timber processing, LIGNA is the No. 1 meeting-place for visitors worldwide.
A large international presence and all-round expertise – this is what everyone associates with LIGNA. The innovative design and technology of the products and systems on display here, together with the high calibre and international provenance of the exhibiting companies, reinforce the global reputation enjoyed by LIGNA as the top event for the industry worldwide.
Only at LIGNA are all the suppliers of technology for the timber and furniture industries represented. Only here will you fi nd the world's most comprehensive array of machinery and tools. And only here can you learn about the latest innovations, new products and production standards.
