LIGNA.Innovation Network

The first digital edition of LIGNA.Innovation Network, LIGNA.Forum digital is all set to kick off from Monday, September 27 till September 29, 2021. On account of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the world’s largest woodworking event had been cancelled for 2021. However, the event will now be hosted virtually through LIGNA.Forum digital.

The event will host the new digital meeting place for the woodworking and wood processing industry to connect with international companies, suppliers, users, research and education, promote dialogue around the focus topics of woodworking transformation, prefab building processes in timber construction and green material processing, and highlight opportunities for the industry.

Things to expect at LIGNA.Innovation Network

Networking and product showcase: Over 110 national and international companies are expected to showcase comprehensive product overviews and best-case applications in the expo area and provide information on concrete solutions via livestream and video chats. These include companies such as Biesse, Burkle, Dieffenbacher, Homag, Siemens, Siempelkamp and Weinig. Networking functions will enable visitors to find suitable contacts and get in touch directly with exhibitors and other participants.

New learning: The two-day conference programme with more than 80 international speakers will also offer new formats for learning about trends and initiating contacts. It will be streamed live from the H'Up in Hall 18 at the Hannover Exhibition Centre.

The LIGNA.Forum digital will focus on woodworking transformation by means of digitization and networking. Another topic is dedicated to prefab building processes in timber construction. The agenda includes presentations and discussion panels on topics such as automation and efficient manufacturing processes in wood construction and ways to network woodworking.

In the Wood Industry Summit digital, everything revolves around green material processing. There, experts will show the economic and technical innovations that result from new processing technologies of wood and wood components as the most important renewable resource for new materials and uses.

The wood craft will not be neglected either. In the Spotlight Handwerk (Spotlight Craft), experts will provide impulses and suggestions on various topics such as asbestos and occupational health and safety, digital measurement in the craft trade or digitalization in training via video stream and chat offerings.

Awards and recognitions: In addition, on September 28, 2021, Holzbau Deutschland will present the German Timber Construction Award 2021 at the LIGNA.Forum digital.

On September 29, 2021, the DIPA (Digital Printing Association) Symposium on Surface Design with Digital Printing will be streamed live from the H'Up in Hall 18 as a hybrid event. Under the motto create your own surface, experts will highlight current trends for the design of high-quality and individual surfaces and report on their experiences.

The new format of expo, conference and networking is organised by Deutsche Messe Hannover along with the VDMA Woodworking Machinery Association. Interested parties can register at
