FORST live > Exhibitors


Take advantage of the attractiveness of the FORST live, the industry gathering of the forestry and timber industry, wood energy and biomass in Southern Germany, that is expecting around 32,000 trade visitors from 29. - 31. March 2019 at the Exhibition Center Offenburg. Present your innovative product range at competitive rates, maintain your contact to existing customers and win new customers such as renowed manufacturers and traders who show many of their exhibits in practical use in April this year whilst underlining the reputation of the FORST live as "firewood mecca".

More than 300 exhibitors from 15 nations were present in 2018 for the 19th edition of the FORST live. In addition to interested consumers, the decision makers from the forestry and agriculture, the gardening and landscape construction and municipal services, as well as the professionals from the construction industry, the energy industry, the wood craft, the hunting community, the civil service and the sawmill industry are part of the visitor circle of the FORST live.

The infrastructure of the open-air exhibition ground is very well developed and fully fenced. For the presentation of products as well as for machinery demonstrations, the open-air exhibition ground with 46,000 square metres provides ideal conditions, just as the 6,000 square metres Baden-Arena where manufacturers and traders exhibit anything around the theme of renewable energies.

The motorway exit Offenburg of the A5 is only two kilometres from the exhibition ground and assures you as well as freight forwarders quick delivery options to the ground.

Numerous hotels in Offenburg and guesthouses in the surroundings offer comfortable and affordable rooms where you can relax after a busy day at the fair.
