EXPOBOIS 2016: New date for event

EXPOBOIS, the trade fair for the french forestry and woodworking industry, will take place in Paris, Villepinte, from 22 to 25 November 2016. For the first time Deutsche Messe AG will be cooperating with the French industry association for machine and production technology SYMOP (Syndicat des Machines et Technologies de Production).

The exhibition will feature bio-energy, sawmill technology, woodworking machinery, wood materials and construction, the furniture industry and home decoration. 

One of the main highlights of the fair will be the primary wood industry. “With the support of the KWF – Kuratorium für Waldarbeit und Forsttechnik e.V. in Groß-Umstadt, Hesse (Germany), together with a French region, we will demonstrate sustainable forestry management at EXPOBOIS and show how regions with an under-developed infrastructure can sustain a profitable forestry sector with a high-quality tree population”, says Kai Varrelmann, Director of Organization and International Distribution at Hannover Fairs International, a member of the Deutsche Messe group. “In close cooperation with our partner SYMOP, and with the support of the political community, industry and the relevant associations, we intend to promote and develop EXPOBOIS.”

Trade visitors will find problem-solving processes and value-adding production chains, which are showcased as individual stages in a logically, practice-based structure. The product presentations are augmented by a programme that highlights related keynote themes in conferences, company presentations and best-practice examples, including live demonstrations.

By cooperating with Deutsche Messe, EXPOBOIS will attract international interest from exhibitors and trade visitors from France, Europe, as well as the Maghreb region and the French-speaking African countries.
