Press release -
Elmia Wood – the world’s leading forestry fair is finally back!
On 2–4 June 2022 the world’s leading forestry fair, Elmia Wood, will again be held south of Jönköping. Elmia is looking forward to welcoming exhibitors and visitors from many parts of Europe to experience the event, which will focus on innovative and sustainable forestry methods for the future.
The location is once again the fantastic and versatile forest at Bratteborg south of Jönköping. Elmia Wood is a comprehensive fair and meeting place for forest owners, contractors, administrators and everyone else interested in the forest. Visitors can see the latest products, discover innovations and new knowledge, and create opportunities for new business deals.
“We are facing complex challenges involving forest damage and bark beetles plus an increased need for felling, while at the same time many people are promoting standing timber as a carbon sink. One result is that many forest owners today are left wondering how they should manage their forests in the future,” explains Elmia’s Anders Roman.
“Recently there has been a strong debate over the value of the forest and how it should be managed and cared for, and we can clearly see that all the various forest stakeholders need a meeting place,” he adds. “That’s why we’re also hosting on-stage discussions and panel debates.” The topics will include the EU’s taxonomy, the climate, biodiversity and fossil-free forest management. A moderator and various guests will hold on-stage debates in front of an audience interested visitors.
“We’re working intensively with the fair right now and are really looking forward to hosting Elmia Wood 2022, which will bring the products and know-how together in one place,” Anders Roman concludes.
Tickets will go on sale shortly at the Elmia Wood website.
