Stage Set for LIGNA 2019:
Scheduled from May 27 to 31, 2019 at Hannover, Germany the stage is all set for LIGNA 2019. Over 1,500 companies will be gathering at this grand exhibition to showcase the future of the woodworking and timber processing industries. Whether it is about digitization, automation, IoT platforms or collaborative systems, LIGNA is the place for showing innovations for the first time. 1,30,000 square meters (nearly 1.4 million square feet) is the total net display area that will be occupied by exhibition stands featuring the latest woodworking and timber processing plant, machinery and tools.
“Exhibitors from over 50 countries will gather at the Hannover Exhibition Center to showcase state-of-the-art processing solutions, applications and concepts for the entire forestry and wood industry. The presence of all the world’s leading technology providers will make Hannover the global hotspot for the wood-based industries during the five days of exhibition. No other fair compares in terms of international appeal,” asserted Christian Pfeiffer, Global Director LIGNA and Woodworking Shows, during the LIGNA Preview press conference in New Delhi alongside the 7th edition of DelhiWood held in March 2019.
Visitors can expect to see innovations across all display categories, from forestry technology, furniture and window manufacturing, through to tooling systems and surface technology. They will also see live demonstrations of fully functional furniture production plants, learn about IoT platforms for Industry 4.0 plants and the latest R&D projects, and be able to participate at networking events throughout the show.
Christian Pfeiffer further added, “One of the big challenges is the ever-greater trend to product individualization – a trend that is putting pressure on manufacturers to deliver customized products at least as quickly, profitably and efficiently as with series production. It’s these sorts of challenges for which LIGNA exhibitors will be presenting solutions.”
