HOLZ-HANDWERK is all about opportunities and discovery. Each time, the show tries to focus on specific and practical segments related to woodworking industry. This time, the show will arrange a ‘PRACTICAL GUIDE TO DIGITISATION Forum’ which is going to take place from March 19 to 22, 2024 at the Nuremberg exhibition venue.

In entertaining and compact power interviews throughout the four-day event, experts and entrepreneurs will explain how networking data, information, and knowledge results in more order, speed, and reliability instead of mountains of paper.

Wide range of topics: Digitalization across the skilled crafts business!
Digitisation simplifies business. Even smaller companies can use intelligent software, perform comprehensive data acquisition and interconnect their planning, production, assembly, administration and timely services!

If you’re still relying on forms, outmoded technologies or hanging files and ring binders for planning, calculation, procurement, on the building site, in documentation, in accounting, with customers, in warehouse management, in production or even in your search for employees and trainees – you’re wasting money!

From investment to innovation tool!

When digitising, it’s important to always keep your eye on the prize! Combine all your business’s work processes. Wherever possible, automate routines to ensure quality and make time for customers. That’s how digitisation of a company changes from a purely technical investment to a valuable tool in daily operations that can also be used to promote an innovative image.

At the PRACTICAL GUIDE TO DIGITISATION Forum, and based on practical examples of real implementation, skilled craftspeople and experts will describe and discuss the ways that modern technologies are changing everyday business and workplace culture, automating routine tasks, simultaneously speeding up and documenting processes, and making it easier to comply with rules, regulations, and quality standards.

Topics for entrepreneurs in the skilled crafts business
Finally, interviews at the PRACTICAL GUIDE TO DIGITISATION for Craftspeople Forum will also cover the influence of digitisation on all aspects of a company. These include creditworthiness, acquisition of skilled workers, marketing on social media, the circular economy, and climate protection.

In interviews at the PRACTICAL GUIDE TO DIGITISATION for Craftspeople Forum, you’ll learn how everything functions better digitally and how you can take the best advantage of that.

During the practical guide session, these questions will be discussed such as:

Are the challenges of digitisation in skilled crafts sufficiently known?

Digitisation delves deep into all areas of skilled crafts businesses, including new requirements for daily operations, challenges for management, investments, and expensive qualification measures for employees. The pressures exerted on skilled crafts businesses by the economic environment and society today are tremendous. Are all businesses equally capable of negotiating this balancing act? Is enough being done to help the oft-cited skilled crafts economic engine to meet these challenges?

How profound are the effects of digitisation and connectivity on the skilled crafts?

Digitised skilled crafts businesses communicate differently, plan differently, and operate differently – and that’s practically impossible without a fundamental overhaul of the IT infrastructure. This makes it difficult for many companies to get started and puts investments on hold. What’s a long-term and meaningful foundation for successful digitisation in skilled crafts businesses today? How viable for the future are the different technological approaches to digital solutions? And without IT expertise, how can anyone find their way?

The forum audience will have the opportunity to submit their questions during the discussion! In the event schedule for the PRACTICAL GUIDE TO DIGITISATION for Craftspeople Forum, which is being held at the FENSTERBAU FRONTALE + HOLZHANDWERK 2024.
