The HOLZ-HANDWERK success story

HOLZ-HANDWERK took place for the 19th time in 2018 and can look back on an outstanding success story. The exhibition started at the Nuremberg exhibition venue in combination with FENSTERBAU FRONTALE in 1992, when around 60,000 visitors attended. The event celebrated a significant success only two years later, when it attracted 70,000 trade visitors. Since then HOLZ-HANDWERK has developed into one of the most important trade fairs for machine technology, equipment and supplies for the wood crafts.

In 2018, 515 exhibitors from 19 countries on almost 32,000 m² came toghether at HOLZ-HANDWERK to show the latest trends in woodworking and wood processing to over 110,000* international trade visitors (*in combination with FENSTERBAU FRONTALE).

In 2022, the trade fair pairing announced its return with a "summer edition" featuring 708 exhibitors from 33 countries. Over four days, around 28,500 trade visitors from more than 100 countries came together to enjoy personal encounters and networking, find solutions, try out products, and experience a live trade fair!

The recently concluded trade show of the combined events - FENSTERBAU FRONTALE and HOLZ-HANDWERK 2024 - was a great success! During the four days from 19 March to 22 March, we were very pleased to welcome around 75,000 visitors from 112 countries at the Exhibition Center in Nuremberg!
