Forestry giant prepares to expand even more
world's largest forestry fair continues to raise the bar for
international forestry fairs. A year from now it will finally be time
again for Elmia Wood. This global trade fair is creating even more space
than before to present all the innovations for the entire logistics
chain from seedling to industry.
focusing even more on presenting the breadth of forestry operations and
efficient, practical applications that create growth and return on
investment," explains Jakob Hirsmark, manager of Elmia Wood. "There will
also be shows of harvesting in full operation, in real life
forestry is all about efficient production and logistics that must
function all the way from the seedling stage to when the raw material
reaches industrial customers. Elmia Wood from 7 to 10 June 2017 focuses
on the totality of this process in several ways. One innovation is an
arena for final felling that stretches across seven hectares, the Final
Felling Arena. Here the leading manufacturers will demonstrate their
harvesters in full operation in front of the public, who can see and
compare the machines and how they perform.
Logistics and drones
new section at Elmia Wood will be Load & Transport, which brings
together everything to do with forestry logistics. Here visitors can see
products and services for the maintenance and construction of forest
roads, the transport of forest raw materials, and timber handling at
terminals and woodyards.
products were exhibited at previous editions of Elmia Wood but we're
now gathering all of them in their own dedicated area to give visitors a
better overview," Hirsmark says.
aerial vehicles (UAVs) have made their debut in the forestry sector. So
far this is an exciting technology for the future with limited
practical use, but drones are now at the point of becoming a
self-evident part of forestry operations. At Elmia Wood drones will have
their own area, the Drone Zone, where visitors can decide for
themselves what the new technology can offer.
The home of innovations
Wood is the self-evident stage where the latest forestry innovations
can first encounter the market and the world. Both world-leading
manufacturers and individual innovators help to make Elmia Wood the
world's most important arena in which to show new products and new ideas
for efficient forestry. Many forest machines and other equipment have
first met the public in the forests outside Jönköping.
the world's biggest forestry fair attracts over 500 exhibitors and
about 50,000 visitors from all around the world.
booking pressure from exhibitors is high. Now, almost exactly one year
before the fair, many places are already booked," says Niklas Lundgren,
Key Account Manager for Elmia Wood.
