Dates for INTERFORST 2022 are fixed

June 09, 2020
  • INTERFORST 2022 will take place from July 20 to 23, 2022
  • Trade fair will be shortened to four days
  • Program will run Wednesday until Saturday from 09:00 to 18:00

The next international leading trade fair for forestry and forest technology will take place from July 20 to 23, 2022 in Munich. The aim of the event is to bring all representatives of the international forestry sector, including representatives from science and politics, together at a trade fair so that visitors can enjoy a high-level exchange.


Personal meetings with members of the Advisory Board and the analysis of the exhibitor survey 2018 showed that the majority within the industry welcome a shortened trade fair. Given this broad support, Messe München has decided to reduce the next INTERFORST to four trade fair days.

Reinhard Pfeiffer, Deputy Chairman of the Executive Board of Messe München, supports this decision: “INTERFORST is the leading platform for innovations and solutions in the field of forestry, wood and bioenergy. We owe that primarily to our loyal exhibitors and visitors. That’s why it’s important to us to ensure the best conditions for everyone involved.”

What was noticeable in the analysis of the visitor survey was that visitors spend an average of 1,3 days at the trade fair. The aim is to organize a modern trade fair that offers visitors solutions for various challenges over the long term and adapts to the contemporary forestry culture. Ralf Dreeke, Managing Director of Wahlers Forsttechnik says: “I am convinced that we are right in our decision to shorten the trade fair. Our visitors should have a hundred percent INTERFORST without having to spend more time for it. The Advisory Board supports the decision unanimously.”

The four days of the fair from Wednesday to Saturday will continue to reach all parts of the forestry sector that work together nationally and globally. Constructive and interactive trade fair programs will be offered from and for the fields of business, science and politics. The INTERFORST project group is currently working on a diverse supporting program comprising lectures, workshops and live demonstrations. The motto: program, every day, until the end!
