Småland: “Small Land” - the largest Forestry Trade Fair

Hej! Welcome to Småland, the "Small Land" and the home of Astrid Lindgren.

Hej! Welcome to Småland, the "Small Land" and the home of Astrid Lindgren. Her stories about Michel from Lönneberga - incidentally the character’s name in Swedish is Emil - and of the children from Bullerbü have shaped the image that the people have of Småland for generations. In the modern business world, the region is well-known for a different reason: Here you will find the world's largest forestry trade fair held on Sweden’s largest exhibition grounds.


And the crowds are just as large. This year's edition of ELMIA Wood was yet another a success along the whole line, with over 41,000 visitors since the beginning of June to the huge exhibition grounds in Jönköping. All the innovations and high-tech devices or applications in the industry were presented and some could even be tested directly on site. For instance, in the new "Drone Zone" section, practical demonstrations showed how drones can be used in forestry. A total of 555 exhibitors from 28 countries confirmed the reputation of ELMIA Wood as the world’s largest forestry technology event of the year.

Together with our partner Owren, PRINOTH Vegetation Management presented the RAPTOR 300, the RFL700 clearing cutter, and the M550m-2100, M450e-900 and the new M550e-1300 mulchers. Plus, PANTHER T14R - PRINOTH's latest tracked utility vehicle - made its debut.
