Petra Westphal, Exhibition Director at INTERFORST, is pleased that, “we are fully on course with the figures and planning. As of now, there are even signs of a slight growth in internationalization. Under the current conditions even this can’t be taken for granted and proves that the industry will continue to need and use trade fairs as a platform in future.”
Another firm component of INTERFORST are the scientific as well as practical events and special shows. For 2022, the topics of “Forest Conversion / Climate Change,” “Forest Maintenance and Utilization Lines,” and “Forest Technology and Digitalization” are the center of attention in the congress and forum area.
Meanwhile, the green couch has been placed in B6, which will be used by the Bavarian Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Forestry and proHolz Bayern, as a meeting point for business, science and politics for lectures and discussions.
Because of the numerous postponed trade fairs in 2022, the dates for INTERFORST have been changed slightly for one time only. This time, the trade fair will start on a Sunday, as Westphal explains: “On this day, our supporting program is completely oriented toward small and medium-sized private forest owners. In addressing this clientele, we are supported in particular by the AGDW-Die Waldeigenthaber, its regional associations and the Austrian Forest Association.”
