One name - one logo

Our parallel trade fair Wild & Fisch has merged spatially with FORST live this year. In the future, there will therefore be only one name "FORST live, Fair for Technology, Energy and Hunting".

FORST live is the leading demo show for forestry technology, renewable energy and hunting in Germany. In 2023, more than 340 exhibitors from 15 nations presented their comprehensive range of products and services on the 46,000 m² outdoor area of Messe Offenburg, as well as in the 6,000 m2 Baden Arena. A total of 33,411 visitors from Germany and abroad took advantage of the trade fair to obtain practical information and advice on numerous further developments and innovations at machine demonstrations and in specialist forums.

Decision-makers from the forestry and agricultural sectors, the landscaping industry and the municipal sector, as well as trade visitors from the construction industry, the energy sector, the timber trade, hunters, the public sector and the sawmill industry were among the visitors, along with interested end users.

Through professional and practical machine and equipment demonstrations, which underline the unique event character of FORST live, visitors can immerse themselves in the world of forestry technology and experience the fascination of wood as a raw material from planting to harvesting and the many different ways it can be used.


Main emphasis of the fair:

Forestry and forestry technology:
Forest renewal and forest maintenance, forest protection, timber harvesting and logging, log storage, forest road construction, transport vehicles, timber processing and machining, tree and landscape maintenance, cultivation and municipal technology, IT, surveying and telecommunications, occupational health and safety, information and consulting, services

Whether you are passionate about hunting or a nature lover out and about in the woods and meadows. The exhibitors offer a wide range of equipment for active hunting or simply for observing animals. Modern technology with night vision or thermal imaging cameras also plays a major role.

The hunting exhibition is co-organized by the Ortenau Hunters' Association, which brings visitors young and old closer to its activities not only in the hunting trade but also in nature conservation.
