LIGNA 2023 focus topics amplify wood industry

 Tuesday, March 15, 2022


LIGNA 2023 is gearing up to address the most relevant topics and share current industry in the field of “Woodworking Transformation”, “Prefab Building Processes” and “Green Material Processing”. These are the focus topics of the upcoming LIGNA from May 15 to 19, 2023.

“After consulting the market, we and our partner VDMA have decided to continue the focus topics originally planned for the then cancelled LIGNA 2021 at LIGNA 2023. They are still highly relevant – have even gained momentum in terms of importance – and will play a key role in determining the development of our industry in the coming years,” explains Stephanie Wagner, Head of LIGNA.

From joinery and carpentry to furniture industry, from products to individual solutions – digitalization has long since found its way into all areas of the woodworking and wood processing industry and is fundamentally changing companies’ business models and processes.

The Corona pandemic has accelerated this development even further. That’s why the focus topic of Woodworking Transformation is on the agenda for LIGNA 2023. With connected machines, human-machine interaction, IoT platforms, Building Information Modeling (BIM) or augmented and virtual reality, current and future developments in digitalization along the entire value chain will be addressed. In addition to that, further topics include wood flow control, robotics, logistics, standardization, surface treatment and cloud-based data management.

The importance of Prefab Building Processes, thus wood in construction, continues to grow – both for purely wooden buildings and for mixed wood structures. Green Material Processing, the wood-based bioeconomy, is considered an innovative driver of technologies and products.

“As the world’s leading trade show, LIGNA with its thematic setting is regarded as a driving force for industry development. With the choice of focus topics, we are living up to this claim. In May 2023 in Hannover, we will finally once again experience the innovations that make LIGNA a showcase for the future,” explains Stephanie Wagner.

The upcoming LIGNA will be held from May 15 to 19, 2023, strongly focussed on the live event, with additional digital products. Prior to this, the 1st Rosenheim LIGNA.Conference will be held on June 1 and 2, 2022, organized jointly by Deutsche Messe and the University of Applied Sciences Rosenheim.
