LIGNA Hannover is located in Hannover, Germany, where editions arrive every two years in the first half of May usually. The international trade fair admits both professional visitors and public members at Messe, Hannover.

The official organisers for the fair are Deutsche Messe AG & VDMA Holzbearbeitungsmaschinen. Working hours start from 09:00 am until 18:00 pm.

Commuters that rely on public transport can utilize the bus system and the light rail system to their advantage and quick arrival. Arriving in a car is also a speedy affair and you’ll find the exhibition centre to have a lot of parking spaces.

LIGNA Hannover maintains a high level of engagement from industry professionals as well as the public, which is one of the great advantages to exhibiting here. You’re not just approaching industry buyers, but receive recognition and attention from the end consumer. This has resulted in a solid turnout of over 1500 international exhibitors and more than 90,000 visitors.

Еven though you might think there are a lot of non-professional visitors, they barely make up 7% of all who go there. The majority of the audience is professional, and they come from all over – carpentry, energy generation, woodworking, wood construction, prefabricated building industry, furniture industry, sawmill industry and forestry. It’s this diversity that opens you up to new revenue streams. There are more than 100 countries represented in the audience, but the majority (over 50%) are German nationals.
