Finding your way around Bauma
Bauma’s organisers say the sell-out show will run across 200,000m2 of indoor space and around 400,000m2 outdoor space – and more than 3,000 companies from some 60 countries will be exhibiting.
As always, there is a packed schedule with plenty to see and do across the week and a comprehensive support programme in place to maximise everyone’s time at the show.
But of course, the first thing you will need when you actually get there is a decent map...
As well as a downloadable floorplan of the exhibition grounds, the event’s organisers have also provided an interactive map online.
In addition to showing all the different areas of the grounds, the Bauma interactive map also allows users to click on specific areas for a detailed floorplan that shows exactly where each exhibitor is located.
