Following the March 2015 deadline for applications to exhibit at the next bauma from 11.04.-16.04.2016, it is clear that demand for exhibition space is again very high. The upcoming edition of the world’s leading trade fair for construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines, construction vehicles and construction equipment will take up all the available space – a total of 605 000 m2 of space – at the Messe München exhibition center in Munich.Again the event is set to be very diverse and international: Already, at this point in time, almost 3 000 exhibitors from over 50 countries have applied to take part. Just how important bauma is to the international building and construction machinery sector is also reflected in the number of international country pavilions that are being organized. Nine countries in all are putting on dedicated presentations: Brazil, China, Czech Republic, France, Great Britain, Italy, Korea, Northern Ireland, and the US. The top ten countries of origin among the exhibitors are as follows (after Germany, as per current applications status): Italy, Turkey, the Netherlands, Spain, UK, US, Austria, France, Sweden and Switzerland.
Already it is clear that the success story of bauma is set to continue. The last event – with a total of 3 421 exhibitors from 57 countries and 535 065 visitors from over 200 countries – broke all previous records.
