Deutsche Messe AG, organizer of Ligna and partners in producing several other international trade fairs, is cooperating for the first time with the French industry association for machine and production technology, Syndicat des Machines et Technologies de Production, to stage this year’s Expobois in Paris.
Expobois is scheduled for Nov. 22-25.
“With the support of the KWF — Kuratorium für Waldarbeit und Forsttechnik e.V. in Groß-Umstadt, Hesse (Germany), together with a French region, we will demonstrate sustainable forestry management at Expobois and show how regions with an under-developed infrastructure can nevertheless sustain a profitable forestry sector with a high-quality tree population”, Kai Varrelmann, director of organization and international distribution at Hannover Fairs International, a member of the Deutsche Messe group, said in a statement. “In close cooperation with our partner SYMOP and with the support of the political community, industry and the relevant associations, we intend to promote and develop Expobois.”
SYMOP has been stakeholder and organizer of Expobois in Paris since 1961.
