Ligna-21 offers digital options too

Seven months before its start, Ligna (27 September to 01 October, 2021) is looking at a positive registration level. Almost 900 companies have already decided to show their on-site presence in the fair, says Mr Christian Pfeiffer, Global Director, Ligna and Woodworking Shows at Deutsche Messe. “We will again be occupying 10 halls and the outdoor area.”

“We are doing everything we can to provide companies with a safe and successful marketplace,” adds Pfeiffer. A comprehensive safety and hygiene concept will apply to the presence in the halls and on the exhibition grounds, which will comply with the regulations in force at that time and will be coordinated with the relevant authorities.

Wide aisles, compulsory wearing of masks on the entire grounds and registration of every visitor and exhibitor will, among other things, ensure maximum safety for all participants on the grounds.

Ligna has also added new virtual participation options to its offering for exhibitors with stand space. “This allows companies to present themselves both in the halls and on our Ligna digital platform on the internet. The additional digital visibility allows them to increase their reach and expand the opportunities for interaction with existing and new business partners,” says Pfeiffer.

Even companies that are unable to exhibit in Hannover due to possible international travel restrictions need not forego participation in the show. The new virtual participation options on the Ligna digital platform enable them to network with all market players as well as journalists from all over the world.

Companies can choose between three digital packages with different services. Depending on the size of the package booked in the Small, Medium and Large formats, these include exhibitor presentations, various dialogue functions, live streaming or videos in the Ligna product media library.

For exhibitors with stand space in Hannover, the Digital Package is included free of charge in the range of services.

The additional Ligna digital packages also enable visitors who cannot be on site to participate virtually and experience the woodworking innovations at the show. For more information visit
