For five days, LIGNA will be transformed into the world’s largest showcase of woodworking machinery, cutting tools and accessories. The trade fair will provide a platform for companies to showcase their innovative woodworking technologies and cutting-edge manufacturing solutions.
In recent history North America has very tangible footprint at LIGNA 2015. A record 3,000 plus North American woodworking professionals were among the more than 90,000 visitors representing 100 countries that attended LIGNA 2013.
Woodworkers from around the globe visiting this year’s fair will find a diverse sampling of North American suppliers displaying their wares. Many of them are members of the WMMA, a U.S. trade association representing more than 200 North American manufacturers and suppliers of woodworking machinery and supplies.
As has been the case since 2003, the WMMA’s presence at LIGNA will be anchored by a pavilion, making it convenient for woodworking attendees to talk shop with a wide array of product specialists. Many other member companies will either exhibit on their own or with one of their European distributors. Still other WMMA members will walk the show in search of new product line
