World’s largest construction trade fair confirms high level of participation

Messe München says 97% of the available space has now been booked for its Bauma construction trade fair, set to take place in Munich between 24 and 30 October this year.

The exhibition was originally planned for April, but a year ago the organiser acknowledged there was “a growing recognition that the April date involved too many uncertainties in view of the global pandemic” and pushed the event back.

Klauss Dittrich, Messe München’s chairman and CEO, said, “In the personal conversations we have with exhibitors and visitors, we hear one thing over and over again: They are really looking forward to having face-to-face discussions and, of course, to experiencing the special atmosphere that only bauma can create.”

The company says this year’s Bauma will see particularly strong representation from the mining sector, with exhibitors including BHS Sonthofen, Herrenknecht, Komatsu, Liebherr, Schulte Strathaus and Zeppelin Baumaschinen.

This year’s exhibition will also include an Innovation Hub, including a zone dedicated to the deeper understanding of how technology can connect machines and how construction businesses can make best use of data.

Ahead of the fair itself, Bauma is launching a new webinar series, to start in March, which will look at a number of hot topics for the construction industry, including:

  • Zero emissions
  • The digital construction site
  • Tomorrow’s construction techniques and materials
  • The path to autonomous machines

While acknowledging that Bauma – as with many current face-to-face events – will have to make adjustments due to Covid, Dittrrich said, “I am really confident that the situation will soon have improved to the point that we will be able to put on an exciting bauma that will attract a large number of international companies and visitors.”
