Satisfied visitors and exhibitors created a terrific atmosphere at Elmia Wood
A good mood and a longing to meet again characterised Elmia Wood 2022 with its many satisfied visitors and exhibitors. Nearly 26,000 visitors walked determinedly around the trail that took them to over 270 exhibitors from 22 different countries. “As a trade fair and event, Elmia Wood had three fantastic days,” comments Anders Roman, programme manager for Elmia Wood. “The fair ran smoothly, thanks in large part to great teamwork. But also thanks to the terrific engagement of the exhibitors and, not least, among all the visitors. It’s been fantastic to encounter the joy and energy along the visitor trail. It’s obvious that many people have longed for the fair as a meeting place.”
Clear climate perspective
As usual for Elmia Wood, the fair offered both technological innovations and smart start-up ideas that we are sure to see more of in future. The theme of the fair, “The value of forests for the innovative and sustainable forestry of the future”, clearly shaped the discussions, not least at the successful Wood Let’s Talk venue, which attracted many people to sit down and listen to exciting debates and lectures. It was also gratifying to see the many interested participants in the new knowledge initiative: the Innovation Loop.
“Our exhibitors are very satisfied, in some cases above their expectations. And the great atmosphere testified to the visitors’ satisfaction too. I am particularly pleased that the forests’ importance to Sweden and the world from a climate perspective so clearly characterised the fair,” Anders says. Elmia Wood will open its doors again in May/June 2025.
“Welcome back to Elmia Wood and the forests of Bratteborg,” Anders concludes.
