LIGNA focusses on the global connections between the value-adding groups that make up the forestry and timber-processing industry. Surrounded by international product presentations, the Wood Industry Summit in Hall 26 was the No.1 international meeting place for all sectors of the primary industry. Panel discussions, keynote speeches and an accompanying exhibition ensured that the 2017 edition of the Wood Industry Summit was once again a major highlight in the primary processing industry’s annual calendar.
Particularly for the international primary industry audience, the second Wood Industry Summit was another standout attraction. Fifteen delegations from 13 nations (including Canada, Colombia, Chile, Bulgaria and Romania) availed themselves of the opportunity for dialogue with industry experts. Under the motto of "Access to Resources and Technology", summit participants debated the latest trends and developments in the categories of "Forestry and Wood Industry 4.0", "Resource Roads", "Forest Fire Control" and "Fleet Management".
