Exhibition space is now 97 per cent sold out for the next bauma in Munich, Germany.

bauma, the world’s largest trade show for construction and mining equipment, will open its doors in Munich from October 24–30, 2022.

The exhibitor interest gives Klaus Dittrich, chairman and CEO of Messe München, a reason to be optimistic about the upcoming trade show.

“This feedback is a clear signal of our customers’ intention to take part in bauma,” Dittrich said. “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 really confident that the 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.”

Mining will be well represented

Mining is an industry that will be well represented again at bauma. Exhibitors will include such industry heavyweights as BHS Sonthofen, Herrenknecht, Komatsu, Liebherr, Schulte Strathaus and Zeppelin Baumaschinen.

Other companies attending the trade show include the Matrix Design Group from the United States, Resemin from Peru, Roco9 from Great Britain, Tesab Engineering from Great Britain and Weber Mining & Tunneling from France. Another returning company will be Minearc Systems from Australia, a key market for the mining industry.

bauma innovation hub

The mining sector is far from the only industry attracted to bauma. For years now, the trade show has been viewed as an innovation hub, thanks to the tremendous number of innovations exhibitors present there. This position will be underscored this year by the innovation hall LAB0, an area that will include the bauma Forum, virtual reality, MIC 4.0, startups and a science hub.

Think Big, a program that promotes talented young people, will also be included as a key issue for the industry.

This year, the trade show will also focus on five key topics that will be covered by exhibitors, the supporting program and the trade fair’s first series of webinars, including:

  • Zero emissions
  • The digital construction site
  • Tomorrow’s construction techniques and materials
  • The way to autonomous machines
  • 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.
