WMF will be held on 5-8 September 2022 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center, Shanghai Hongqiao, China. The fair will gather exhibitors from around the world to showcase cutting-edge equipment and machinery.

Meeting the Trend of the Era, Seizing the New Industry Opportunities

In line with the "14th Five-Year Plan" adopted by the Chinese government last year, under the domestic and international dual-circulation development pattern, the country and enterprises should develop in the direction of scientific research and innovation, green production, and social balance while maintaining stable economic development. Compared with the past practice which simply used economic benefits to measure results and blindly invested in projects with high energy consumption and high emissions, it is encouraged to consider more diverse indicators such as carbon emissions, energy consumption, sustainability, intelligence, and automation in the future development in order to create a more comprehensive and balanced business and social environment. WMF will bring you a variety of exciting content, from on-site exhibitions to concurrent activities, so that all industry partners can stay close to the latest trend under the 14th Five-Year Plan!

Promoting Industry Transformation and Upgrade, Creating a One-stop Exhibition Linking Upstream and Downstream of Industry Chain

As the only woodworking machinery exhibition in China supported by the European Federation of Woodworking Machinery Manufacturers (EUMABOIS), WMF is a must-see for woodworking machinery, furniture and wood products manufacturers for the latest industry information. Together with the introduction of the 14th Five-Year Plan with the growing of digitization and innovation in the post-epidemic era, WMF, which keeps pace with the times, helps the industry players to grasp the new market demands and trends, and is committed to promoting the development and application of intelligent and sustainable development of the industry while providing a suitable platform for industry professionals to exchange technology and information to promote industrial advancement. The exhibition focuses on displaying high-end supply chain products and advanced "smart" manufacturing equipment, helping the industry to transform into "high-end customization" and "green environmental protection" through multiple theme zones. The exhibition introduces new resources such as primary wood processing machinery and wood-based panel production equipment. It covers a complete equipment system from the production of logs and finished furniture to pollution treatment. It runs through the upstream and downstream of the industry chain and promotes the interaction and exchange of various sectors of the wood industry.
