HOLZ-HANDWERK, the complete forum of innovation and uniqueness is back again to establish a trendsetting 2024 edition. Despite the tough economic situation, HOLZ-HANDWERK is still making good headway and is set to present the professional community with a comprehensive product display covering the entire woodworking value chain. For example, machinery will still account for around 40 percent of the total display area, while non-machinery product segments like supplies or hardware are also very well positioned. Nevertheless, the current economic situation is forcing some exhibitors from the machinery segment to opt out of attending HOLZ-HANDWERK 2024.
In combination with FENSTERBAU FRONTALE, HOLZ-HANDWERK will provide valuable and timely orientation amid the crisis as well as responses and solutions to the challenges in the woodworking and wood processing industry. HOLZ-HANDWERK in Nuremberg, the European Trade Fair for Machine Technology, Equipment and Supplies for Wood Craft, focuses on the industry and live the wood. This vast platform offers you to explore from sawing and grinding machines to woodworking machines, extractions systems.
Current scenario of the fair
The good participation levels overall show that many market players appreciate a leading industry platform like HOLZ-HANDWERK, even and especially in challenging times. Skilled trade businesses in particular need the trade fair in times like these so that they can continue to position themselves effectively for the future. This was underlined by Bernhard Daxenberger, President of the Bavarian Carpentry Association (FSH): “The HOLZ-HANDWERK trade fair is already creating a buzz and we are once again looking forward to the largest gathering for the industry in 2024. Even though some machinery manufacturers will not be there, many important partner companies to our trade will be making the trip to Nuremberg. It is therefore sure to be another exciting event, whose concentrated format allows our members to readily find suitable contacts from supplier companies for all business segments. Especially in the current challenging times, it is important to look ahead together and tackle the major challenges in innovative ways. HOLZ-HANDWERK will provide the ideal platform for doing so.”
Stefan Mayer, Managing Director of Werkstätte Mayer, is also looking forward to the 2024 edition of this renowned trade fair: “The concentrated presentation of machines, hardware and software on site offers an unrivalled opportunity for a deep dive into the sector.”
Wood lovers can look forward to the supporting programme of this trade fair that consist important lectures and events at the highest professional level. Also, they can get along a wide range of opportunities for exchanging ideas, networking and learning. The most exciting part is that, the HOLZ-HANDWERK CAMPUS and the all new JobBoard, will provide “A practical guide to digitisation for craftspeople.” The special show of the Fachverband Schreinerhandwerk Bayern is also a highlight.
Product Range of HOLZ-HANDWERK
Stefan Dittrich, Director HOLZ-HANDWERK, expands: “Overall, the registration rate of more than 300 exhibitors is still good, even if, as already mentioned, we have had some cancellations. But there are also some highly positive developments. In the non-machinery segment, more exhibitors are registering than at any time in the last five years. Key players such as Häfele, Festool and Grass will be returning to HOLZ-HANDWERK in 2024. Power tools are another segment that is looking very promising. This sends out a great message to the professional community.”
