Elmia Wood 2017
Elmia Wood is the world`s largest forestry fair. It is constructed out in the forest every fourth year and welcomes visitors from around the world. So if you want to find out the latest trends in the global forest industry, Elmia Wood is a "must". Here you can update your knowledge of technical innovations, both from all the major machinery manufacturers and from small-scale producers, refresh your contact networks, become inspired and acquire masses of new ideas. Elmia Wood offers the forest industry lots of room to showcase itself and present new products and practical solutions. But "the forest" is not only about machines, tools and methods. Advisors and experts show forest owners and contractors efficient ways to improve their profitability. The fairgrounds are located in Bratteborg, Småland, close by the E4 highway, 30 kilometres south of the city of Jönköping.

The basic concept behind Elmia's forestry fairs is to actively demonstrate forestry machinery and equipment for modern silviculture in its proper element: out in the forest. A live fair with vivid demonstrations which truly reflect Scandinavian forestry.
To make this idea work in reality, a complete fair ground concept with everything from traffic and parking to toilets and restaurants must be built up out in the forest - only to be used for a couple of days! Accessibility, quality and safety are our three guiding-stars in the effort to create the most realistic marketplace for forestry operations.
Everything in forestry
It doesn't matter if you are an entrepreneur, forest owner, employee or haulier - you will certainly find what you are looking for! And more besides.
During the four days of Elmia Wood 2005 about 4000 qubic metres of forest was harvested. Small-scale sawmills, log splitters, scarification equipment, GPS equipment and trailers were also in full swing.
Elmia Wood lasts only for four days. Many visitors spend one day at the fair trying to fit everything in. We strongly recommend that you stay longer - you will need the time!
Two alternating fairs
Until the end of the 80:s all Elmia forestry fairs were called Elmia Wood. They were all international and biennial. After Elmia Wood in 1989, it was decided to hold the international fair, Elmia Wood every four years. Instead a smaller and specifically Scandinavian focused forestry fair, SkogsElmia, was founded and is now held between the international fairs. In this way, the Swedish audience still can visit a forestry fair every two years.
The world's leading dynamic forestry fair
With 540 exhibitors and 50 000 visitors in 2005 Elmia Wood is presently the world's largest dynamic forestry trade fair. Our smaller Scandinavian fair, SkogsElmia, is among the five largest forestry fairs in the world.
Elmia Wood is a meeting point for forest people from all over the world. Here not only do you conduct business, a lot of people take the opportunity to make the trip to Elmia Wood to an event of their own; forest owner's organisations, banks and roundwood buyers organise bus tours. Forest owners, entrepreneurs and employees take the opportunity to meet old friends and schoolmates between the business meetings.
The catalogue on the Internet
The fair continues for a long time after the closing of the gates. Therefore it is of importance that information about products and suppliers are easy to find also after the fair. The fair catalogue is published on the Internet a couple of weeks prior to the fair.
We hope that our web pages can help you to optimise your participation or visit before, during and after the fair.
In order to support and develop all forms of contacts, we can amongst other things help you to organise or take part in group travel. If you want to know more about this, please visit our homepage closer to the date.
