From Hannover to Ekaterinburg: LIGNA passes the baton to LESPROM-URAL Professional6 June/ 2017
Russia was among top 10 countries in terms of attendance at LIGNA 2017, world’s leading fair for forestry and the woodworking industry, that took place in Hannover (Germany) on 22-26 May 2017. This fact clearly reflects a significant level of Russian timber specialists’ interest in innovations developed for the timber industry.
In particular, LIGNA was visited by a Sverdlovsk region delegation comprising representatives of the region’s Ministry of the Investments and Development, Middle Ural Development Corporation, Ural State Forestry Engineering University and the Interregional Exhibition Company-Ural (organizer of GRAND EXPO-URAL).
The representatives of the Sverdlovsk region held a number of important talks on the evolution of LESPROM-URAL Professional as an effective marketing platform for international leaders of forestry and the woodworking industry. Other topics included strengthening Russian-German cooperation in the field of exhibition organization in Ekaterinburg, and promotion of the Ural region across the international community.
