The conference theme will be ‘Integrated production in woodworking – the way towards Industry 4.0′ and the event is being organised by Deutsche Messe and the German Woodworking Machinery Manufacturers’ Association.

The event will be specifically targeted at decision makers from the woodworking trades and the furniture, building products, interior finishing and timber construction sectors.

The two-day conference will explore the intelligent integration of production and logistics processes and the practical benefits of Industry 4.0 technologies for users of woodworking machines. It will also feature real-life case studies that illustrate the wider benefits to the timber and furniture industries of integrated production systems – the ability to manufacture customised products at competitive prices, for instance.
