About the event
High-end machines at LAS-EXPO
The 21st LAS-EXPO Timber Industry and Forest Resources Management Fair made it possible for industry companies and institutions to take a deep breath. The three-day event held in parallel with the Agrotech expo hosted almost 50 thousand people eager to see the expo offer. The expo halls and the outdoor expo grounds were the display for the latest machines, tools and devices as well as technologies used in forestry and the wood industry, both at home and abroad.
The expo encompasses a wide and diversified products and services portfolio, including cutting-edge devices and technologies which facilitate the forestry enterprises' daily business and operations. There was a plethora of equipment and machines for wood harvesting, transporting and processing, such as saws, chippers, frame saws and shredders are on display. The most important companies in the wood industry presented their products, and among them: Wood-Mizer, Stihl, Krpan and Tehnos. - As every year, machines were presented not only in the exhibition halls but also on outdoor exhibition grounds; this offers the opportunity to observe their machines' working life. Such opportunity directly translates into purchase impulses. The exhibitors' offer also included a plethora of forest protection measures and fire protection systems.
The Las-Expo was held under the auspices of the Director-General of the National State Forest Holding, the expo organisers find it a great honour. Jan Tabor, Deputy Director-General for Forest Management, had the opportunity to visit the exhibition; the guests of honour highlighted the expo's role in the forestry industry during the official Gala Ceremony. The forest show was also attended by representatives of the Association of Forest Entrepreneurs, whose objective is innovations popularisation for better performance of forestry works and to raise knowledge of safe methods and technologies of work in forestry. The National State Forests' expo stand, devised in collaboration with the State Forests' Information Centre, was designed to promote LP'S economic activity with a particular emphasis on the social and environmental functions of forests. Experts' advice covered forest management, reforestation, wood and seedlings of trees and shrubs bought from the National State Forests Holding. The stand offered the possibility to exchange experiences on new technologies, machines and devices used in forestry, forest condition monitoring, planning and analysis.
- The fruitful cooperation with our partners and the positive reaction of the industry resulted in the exhibition growing more extensive and more attractive every year. The high quality of our services, constant dialogue with our exhibitors and openness to their suggestions have been our tradition. This support for the wood industry is very much in demand; companies need to regroup their forces and start the next season equipped with rich experience, knowledge, but also new business contacts - says Agnieszka Dąbrowska, manager of the Las-Expo fair.
Of course, the expo is much more than a serious discussion and important matters. The expo has enjoyed the uninterrupted tradition - the Hunting Buglers Band has traditionally opened the expo for over two decades.
