The extensive product spectrum caters for every wish. A top-class supporting programme with many highlights and special shows rounds off the concept of the exhibition.

The established cooperation between these powerful partners creates a special atmosphere at HOLZ-HANDWERK. It is an important business and sector event and is both a get-together and an opportunity for positioning. Not for nothing is HOLZ-HANDWERK a key platform for sector and people, market and products, image and PR, and contents and knowledge.

The event celebrated a significant success only two years later, when it attracted 70,000 trade visitors. Since then HOLZ-HANDWERK has developed into one of the most important trade fairs for machine technology, equipment and supplies for the wood crafts. The 2016 edition of the exhibition impressed its 110,581 visitors with 494 exhibitors from 19 countries on almost 32,000 m².
