Full halls, enthusiastic visitors and very satisfied exhibitors – that sums up HOLZ-HANDWERK 2018. The event was impressive in every respect, with an excellent range of products and information, and top quality for both exhibitors and visitors. The halls at HOLZ-HANDWERK, the industry meeting for the wood processing sector, were alive with more than just the buzz of machines: business was also booming. With 515 exhibitors (2016: 494) from 19 countries, this exhibition for machine technology and manufacturing requirements was once again the go-to event for cabinet-makers, joiners and carpenters from all over Europe. True to the motto: “DISCOVER. EXPERIENCE. DO.” the trade fair showcased the newest trends and innovation, whilst also offering visitors a direct hands-on approach to the exhibited products.
Current industry topics were carefully prepared to provide a wealth of information in the supporting programme: from promoting new talents in craft enterprises at the HOLZ-HANDWERK Campus to subject-specific shows, such as the special show DesignObject – ObjectDesign by the Bavarian Carpentry Association (FSH), which this edition focused on the spirit of the room and holistic design concepts.
