INTERFORST 2022: Valuable partner for rich knowledge transfer
August 04.2021
  •  Next INTERFORST will take place from July 17-20, 2022

  •  KWF will demonstrate future trends in climate change

  • DLG will demonstrate forest and communal technology in action

From forest conversion in climate change to new technologies: From July 20-23, 2022, INTERFORST will once again bring together forestry, science and politics around the word and provide answers to the questions of the future. The Kuratorium für Waldarbeit und Forsttechnik (KWF – German Center for Forest Work and Technology) and Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft (DLG – German Agricultural Society) have partnered to create a varied specialist program.

“In challenging times, INTERFORST has two internationally renowned partners on its side in the form of KWF and DLG,” explains Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, Deputy Chairman of the Board at Messe München. “With its comprehensive specialist background and scientific know-how, KWF will enrich the specialist program through practical and solution-oriented presentations. These will be perfectly supplemented by open-air presentations from DLG.”

KWF: Reforestation, forest conversion 

KWF has already been connected to INTERFORST for many years and will once again be tackling the current main topics of the forestry sector in its special show. Above all, it will be about the current state of forests, which, due to climatic developments, is posing immense challenges for forestry. The program is characterized by reforestation, forest conservation and forest conversion into stable and climate-resilient forests, but also by the utilization of wood. “As the competence center for forestry in Germany, we have our fingers on the pulse of the time,” explains Bernhard Hauck, CEO of KWF. “We are familiar with the challenges to forestry practice and are able to connect these with the latest scientific findings. That means we can offer optimal solutions for the conservation of German forests, as well as for sustainable forest cultivation and provision of wood.”

DLG: International network, technology in practice

DLG will enrich the forum program with matchmaking workshops on the opportunities and risks of central-European forestry engineering in international markets. In its outdoor ForstPraxis Arena, DLG will present forest and communal technology in practice. The presentations will bridge the specialist topics that are at the heart of KWF’s special show. The aim is to promote technical progress, as well as international knowledge and technology transfer in the interests of sustainable forestry and forest technology.

“As a specialist organization, we offer visitors to INTERFORST current, practical knowledge for forestry through our live presentations. This professional cooperation builds a bridge to the DLG-Waldtage in September 2022, where the focus will be on the characteristic live presentations of applied forest technology,” said Tobias Eichberg, CEO of DLG Service GmbH, emphasizing the strategic importance of the cooperation.

Every four years, INTERFORST, as one of the leading international trade fairs for forestry and forest technology, presents the entire logistics chain from afforestation and timber harvesting to the sawmill. Another focus is on the energetic use of wood. A comprehensive supporting program with a congress and various forums and special shows brings together science, politics and practice.
