Ligna Changes 2021 Show Dates

Organizers of the Ligna show—Deutsche Messe and VDMA—announced that the large woodworking machinery event next year is rescheduled from May to September 27 to October 1, 2021. The announcement comes in view of ongoing developments and infections of COVID-19.

“Due to the ongoing pandemic, increasing restrictions and the renewed lockdown, there is great uncertainty in the market,” emphasizes Dr. Andreas Gruchow, Deutsche Messe Managing Board member. “The decision to postpone Ligna was a very difficult one for us, but it is the only consistent measure to give all those involved planning security and the necessary lead time for preparations.”

“We are already looking forward to numerous innovations, particularly in the three focal themes of LIGNA.21: Woodworking Transformation, Prefab Building Processes and Green Material Processing,” adds Christian Pfeiffer, Global Director Ligna & Woodworking Shows at Deutsche Messe.
