About the Event:
Ligna 2019 will take place from May 27-31 and will occupy around 1.4 million sq. ft. of net display space, spread across 10 exhibition halls and the open-air site at the Hannover Exhibition Center.
For the first time, Ligna will offer a guided tour (in German and English) for visitors with an interest in sawmill technology. The event will also host the Wood Industry Summit, the "Future Workshop for Forestry & Wood," the 14th German Logging Championship, and the outdoor demonstration site for forestry technology.
As an integral part of Ligna, providers of plant, machinery, and equipment for the primary wood industry will feature at numerous showcases and events that is said to go beyond standard exhibitions. These include the Showcase by North Rhine-Westphalia Forestry Service, the Energy from Wood showcase, the “Firewood Production Line” showcase, the Linga Forestry Get-together, and the 13th Lower Saxony Crane Driving Championships and 4th Women's Crane Driving Cup.
Also, the German Forestry Council (KWF) is spearheading a special forestry technology presentation that is aimed at forestry companies and takes a manufacturer-neutral look at key forestry issues and challenges. Topics discussed during this meeting will be “Forestry 4.0” and “Battery-powered machinery in professional forestry.”
