bauma postponed to 2022 28 July 2021

bauma, the trade fair for construction machinery, building material and construction equipment, has been postponed until 24th – 30th October 2022.

This is the result of numerous discussions between Messe München and top industry representatives and the advisory board. Above all globally active exhibitors – who are making high investments in the show with stand construction, logistics and hotel capacities, etc – were expecting customers from all over the world to attend the show, so requested a postponement.

 “The decision to postpone bauma was of course not an easy one for us. Unfortunately, despite the vaccination campaign that has started all over the world, it is currently not foreseeable when the pandemic will be largely under control and unlimited worldwide travel will be possible again,” explained Klaus Dittrich, chairman of the management board of Messe München. “This makes participation difficult to plan and calculate for both exhibitors and visitors. After all, the participants at the last bauma came from over 200 countries around the world, so the decision is consistent and logical.”

Regardless of the postponement, the technical and organisational planning for bauma 2022 will continue. The core of bauma 2022 will still be the face-to-face event, supplemented and expanded with digital offers. “Customers from all over the world can take part in bauma, even if they cannot or do not want to travel to Munich in person,” points out Klaus Dittrich.
