digitalBAU celebrates its successful premiere

With its successful premiere, digitalBAU has provided significant impetus to digitization in the building industry. From 11.02.-13.02.2020, more than 270 exhibitors and around 10000 visitors created a veritable atmosphere of enthusiasm on the exhibition grounds in Cologne/Germany. All participants involved agreed: Digitization is opening up opportunities along the entire value chain of the construction industry, increasing productivity and efficiency in the construction process and thus ensuring long-term success.

The decision of the organizers, Messe München and the German Construction Software Association (Bundesverband Bausoftware, BVBS), to stage digitalBAU in the cathedral city of Cologne and thus to establish a second and central location complementing BAU in Munich, proved to be the right decision, emphasized Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Messe München: “The enormous response from the industry underlines the success of our new concept. Together with the industry, we have started a new chapter: digitalBAU promotes dialog between the players along the entire value chain and thus accompanies digital developments, trends and services for the construction industry”.

Prof. Joaquín Díaz, Chairman of the Board of the BVBS, is just as convinced: “Digitization requires completely new answers to the latest questions of the construction industry, which have so far not been addressed by traditional trade fairs. The previously separate areas of planning, execution, operation and building products themselves are moving closer together and, considering continuous digitization, must be viewed integrally. The industry is looking for solutions that lie in the integration of software, products and processes.”

digitalBAU in numbers

More than 270 exhibitors presented their products and solutions at the premiere of digitalBAU. Around 10000 trade visitors came to the trade fair. The international share amounts to almost 10 %. The countries with the highest number of visitors after Germany were (in this order): Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. The consistently positive feedback from visitors about this debut is gratifying: According to survey results, 92 % rated digitalBAU as excellent, very good or good. 91 % stated that they would also visit the next edition.

The next digitalBAU will again take place in Cologne from 15.02.-17.02.2022.
