Expertise, novelties and the beautiful game at the "FN INNOVATION EXPO
in Zell am Moos

"Be there and experience innovation, expertise, inspiration, joy of life and - if you like - your best game!" was the motto of the FN Neuhofer autumn event in Zell am Moos, Austria.

The "FN Innovation Expo" at FN Neuhofer's headquarters in Zell am Moos, took place from 12-14 October 2023. In the course of an innovative interpretation of an in-house exhibition, an
FN golf tournament was also held at the "Leading Golf Course GC am Mondsee". Here, the guests could not only enjoy playing golf, but also network in the best possible way.

"We were delighted with the large number of visitors, interesting discussions and lively interest," said owner and managing director Franz Neuhofer about the successful event.

The programme of the "FN Innovation Expo" was varied and was heralded with the opening of the new "FN Innovation and Science Centre".
Here, four test stations with robot applications were demonstrated to illustrate the load-bearing capacity and high quality of FN products, three-dimensional representations of profile structures including explanations as well as general information on wood and its functions with interesting facts also on the demand for responsible sustainability.

Afterwards, the visitors went on a guided tour of the company with a special feature. Visitors could bring a picture of their choice, which was then printed live, either on Alu-Dibond, OSB or FN Acustico, using the new digital printing machine on site. In this way, the guests could experience how a work of art on 60x60 cm was created from their desired picture and, of course, take it home with them.

Another highlight was the expert dialogue with international keynote speaker Christoph Holz on "Artificial Intelligence and its impact on production, trade and the future of us all". Customers, partners, employees and even applicants were invited to learn exciting facts, ask questions and discuss with the expert. Conclusion: Fascination and a bit of caution.

Between the programme items, there was of course time to exchange ideas in a relaxed atmosphere over coffee, rolls and desserts at the FN Café. "All in all, it was a more than successful event with many interesting encounters and promising business deals," says Franz Neuhofer.

FN innovations at more than 20 trade fairs worldwide this year
The family business from Zell am Moos has already exhibited over 20 trade fairs/congresses this year. FN Neuhofer was thus able to present and make accessible its wide range of products, from accessories for floors, walls and ceilings, to many international visitors. The family-owned company's new mainstay - the FN acoustic panels, which are offered in the further development of shapely variants to hexagonal acoustic elements - met with particular interest.

Two trade fairs are still outstanding. In November, the Branchentag Holz in Cologne (Hall 8, Stand B21) will follow and in December, the Big 5 Global in Dubai will conclude the successful trade fair marathon 2023.
