INTERFORST brought together the innovative entrepreneurs and bright minds of the forestry industry. In doing so, it was once again a powerful source of inspiration: It addressed current topics such as digitalization, securing skilled workers and forestry adaptation to climate change. And it presented the entire scope of technological innovations.

We are very pleased. INTERFORST is definitely one of the leading trade fairs in Europe. The atmosphere among the trade fair visitors is extremely positive. There is a lot of interest, a lot of investment. We had visitors to our booth from all over Germany, and from the north and west, all of them experts, many forestry contractors. The entire organization of the fair was excellent, the set-up in particular was very relaxed. Compliments to the trade fair team!
