BAUMA 2016

Record demand at bauma 2016

This year’s bauma attracted around 580 000 visitors from 200 countries to Munich/Germany between 11.04.–17.04.2016. That is a rise of more than 9 %. After Germany, the top ten countries of origin among the visitors were ­Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, the Netherlands, UK, Sweden, the Russian Federation, Poland and the Czech ­Republic. A total of 3423 exhibitors – 1263 from Germany and 2160 from abroad – from 58 countries presented their products, developments and innovations on a ­record 605 000 m² of exhibition space. Exhibitors from outside Germany accounted for 63 % of the total – higher than ever before.

As well as breaking records in terms of exhibitor and visitor numbers and exhibition space, bauma is also a great place for filling the order books. ­Stefan Heissler, a member of the Board of ­Directors of Liebherr-International AG, confirms: “bauma 2016 was a tremendous success for Liebherr. We received many orders from a wide variety of different markets. In some segments our expectations were even exceeded.” Jürgen and Stefan ­Wirtgen, ­Managing Partners in the Wirtgen Group, can only agree with this assessment: “Our presentation at this year’s bauma is the most successful so far in the ­history of the company.” The mining section at bauma also received a very positive response in this context, as ­Erwin ­Schneller, Managing Director of SBM Minerals, reports: “My personal ­highlight was that we signed up some unexpected sales at the show.”

The next bauma will take place in Munich from 08.04.–14.04.2019.
