Construction industry gets ready for bauma 11 March 2022

97% of available space has already been booked by exhibitors for bauma 2022, a trade fair for construction machinery, building material machines, construction vehicles and equipment, taking place in Munich from 24th – 30th October.

With so much space already booked Klaus Dittrich, chairman and CEO of Messe München, is very optimistic about the upcoming fair: “This feedback is a clear signal of our customers’ intention to take part in bauma. 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. I am confident the market 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.”

Every event bauma concentrates on innovations and it is no different this year with innovation hall LAB0, an area that will include the bauma Forum, virtual reality, MIC 4.0, startups and a science hub. ‘Think Big’, a programme that promotes talented young people, will also be included as a key issue for the industry.

The trade fair will also focus on five key topics that will be covered by exhibitors for the trade fair’s very first series of webinars: ‘Zero emissions’, ‘The digital construction site’, ‘Tomorrow’s construction techniques and materials’, ‘The way to autonomous machines’ and ‘Mining – sustainable, efficient, reliable’. The webinar series will begin in March and will be conducted in English. Industry experts will use the new format to explore bauma’s key topics in-depth.
