LIGNA focuses on global connections between the groups that add value to the forestry and wood industries. Surrounded by international product presentations, the Summit Industry was the meeting place for all sectors of the primary industry. Group discussions, speeches and an accompanying show have ensured that the 2017 edition of the Wood Industry Summit was once again one of the major innovations in the industry’s annual calendar. Fifteen delegations from 13 countries (including Canada, Colombia, Chile, Bulgaria and Romania) have made use of the opportunity of dialogue with industry experts. Under the motto “Access to Resources and Technology”, the Summit participants discussed the latest trends and developments in the “Forestry and Wood Industry 4.0”, “Resource Roads”, “Forest Fire Control” and “Fleet Management” categories.
