Joining forces: DLG Waldtage and INTERFORST

The DLG (German Agricultural Society) and Messe München to work together on forestry events

(DLG) The DLG and Messe München GmbH (MMG) have entered a cooperation in the forestry sector in order to jointly take advantage of synergies for the ‘DLG Waldtage’ and ‘INTERFORST’ events.

"The DLG offers valuable building blocks for the INTERFORST supporting program, while Messe München, on the one hand, provides a central platform for the content of DLG’s forest competence, and, on the other, supports the forest events that the DLG organizes," says Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, Deputy Chairman of the Board, Messe München.  

"The cooperation between the DLG-Waldtage and INTERFORST events is an important instrument for the DLG to further technical progress in the forestry sector at large, as well as enable technology and knowledge transfer that serve the interests of sustainable forestry," said Peter Grothues, Managing Director, DLG Service GmbH.

Key elements of the cooperation
The next INTERFORST, International Key Trade Fair for Forestry and Forest Technology, will take place in 2022. At this forthcoming event, the DLG will be demonstrating forestry and municipal technology in the open-air area of the exhibition grounds. Within the supporting program accompanying the exhibition, the DLG will be introducing matchmaking workshops that offer key information for the European agricultural machinery industry, highlighting both opportunities and risks offered by various international markets. Reaching promising export markets is expected to have a positive effect on the international format of the exhibition.

The comprehensive cooperation will also leave a positive mark on several forthcoming DLG forestry events - DLG-PraxisSpot “Forest”, Brilon Forest Symposium and the DLG-Waldtage, which in English literally means ‘DLG Forest Days’.Key topics in the forestry industry will be explored jointly in order to develop these areas in the supporting and technical programs of each event, using and building on each other’s strengths.

Trade fair dates
INTERFORST is held in Munich every four years in even-numbered years. The next date for this event is 20th - 23rd July 2022. The next DLG Waldtage event, normally held every two years in odd-numbered years, has been rescheduled for 9th- 11th September 2022 due to the pandemic. This year, the Brilon Forest Symposium with DLG PraxisSpots will be held on 11th and 12th September 2021.
