Between the 22nd and 26th of May, around 1500 exhibitors from 49 countries present their products at the Ligna in Hannover. The overall good economic situation, the new exhibition space layout and digitalization promise a successful event.

"The exhibition space was expanded. We have already managed to surpass the previous event's results. On 128,000 m², the core topics tools, machines and systems for individual and batch production, surface engineering, wood-based material production, sawmill technology, energy from wood, machine components and automation as well as forest technology are represented. The exhibitors fully embraced our new space concept. As a result, we can offer significant increases for the available areas“, Christian Pfeiffer, director in charge of the LIGNA at Deutsche Messe, is delighted.
