INTERFORST 2018 | Opening
The forest is a modern economic factor – as proven every four years by INTERFORST in Munich. As the leading international trade fair for forestry and technology demonstrates, the forest is not only of deep interest to experts, as well as the 700,000 private forest owners in Bavaria, but also to politicians. 453 exhibitors from 28 countries are presenting their technologies in the areas of forest management, wood processing, energy, transport and occupational safety. And one topic in particular is on everyone’s lips at the moment: Digitization With the support of IT, forestry is meeting the challenges of the future. Thanks to big data, forests can be processed more efficiently and climate change actively counteracted. And the workforce is supported digitally as well. Forests affect everyone – whether they’re digital forestry workers or hikers looking for relaxation. So modern and sustainable forestry is correspondingly important. And INTERFORST shows how it’s done.
