Where forestry meets business

LIGNA has a long-standing reputation as the world's leading trade fair for machinery, plant and tools for the wood industry.

Open-air site and Pavilons P32 - P33 + P35


LIGNA has a long-standing reputation as the world's leading trade fair for machinery, plant and tools for the wood industry. What's new this year is that the show has a new layout that positions the Forestry Technology displays in the immediate vicinity of the Sawmill Technology, Energy from Wood, and Wood Based Panel Production displays. What’s more, the new layout has the open-air site as its centerpiece, effectively highlighting the forestry technology displays located there and physically underscoring the synergies that exist between them and the downstream technologies elsewhere at the show. The forestry technology and wood-energy displays on the open-air site are grouped in themed avenues, thereby enabling you to make more efficient use of your time at LIGNA and more quickly find relevant solution providers.

New feature

Another new feature is the demonstration area. Taking up some 5,000 square meters on the open-air site, it will feature live demonstrations of:

  • mobile sawmills
  • logistics and transport equipment
  • large-scale forestry machinery and forestry tools, and
  • firewood production lines
