From 17 to 20 July 2022, INTERFORST will once again bring together forestry, science and politics around the word and provide answers to the questions of the future. The Kuratorium für Waldarbeit und Forsttechnik (KWF – German Center for Forest Work and Technology) and Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft (DLG – German Agricultural Society) have partnered to create a varied specialist program.
“In challenging times, INTERFORST has two internationally renowned partners on its side in the form of KWF and DLG,” explains Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, Deputy Chairman of the Board at Messe München. “With its comprehensive specialist background and scientific know-how, KWF will enrich the specialist program through practical and solution-oriented presentations. These will be perfectly supplemented by open-air presentations from DLG.”
KWF: Reforestation, forest conversion
KWF has already been connected to INTERFORST for many years and will once again be tackling the current main topics of the forestry sector in its special show. Above all, it will be about the current state of forests, which, due to climatic developments, is posing immense challenges for forestry. The program is characterised by reforestation, forest conservation and forest conversion into stable and climate-resilient forests, but also by the utilisation of wood.
“As the competence center for forestry in Germany, we have our fingers on the pulse of the time,” explains Bernhard Hauck, CEO of KWF. “We are familiar with the challenges to forestry practice and are able to connect these with the latest scientific findings. That means we can offer optimal solutions for the conservation of German forests, as well as for sustainable forest cultivation and provision of wood.”
DLG: International network, technology in practice
DLG will enrich the forum program with matchmaking workshops on the opportunities and risks of central-European forestry engineering in international markets. In its outdoor ForstPraxis Arena, DLG will present forest and communal technology in practice. The presentations will bridge the specialist topics that are at the heart of KWF’s special show. The aim is to promote technical progress, as well as international knowledge and technology transfer in the interests of sustainable forestry and forest technology.
“As a specialist organisation, we offer visitors to INTERFORST current, practical knowledge for forestry through our live presentations. This professional cooperation builds a bridge to the DLG-Waldtage in September 2022, where the focus will be on the characteristic live presentations of applied forest technology,” said Tobias Eichberg, CEO of DLG Service GmbH, emphasising the strategic importance of the cooperation.
