The nominations for the bauma Innovation Award 2013, which is being presented as part of bauma, the International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines, Construction Vehicles and Construction Equipment, have been selected (www.bauma-innovationspreis.de). The 15 nominated innovations were announced at the press conference held at the bauma Media Dialog on January 29, 2013 in Munich, by Johann Sailer, president of the VDMA Construction Machinery and Building Materials Machinery Association.
The award is divided into five categories. Out of a total of 156 submissions from Germany and abroad, the jury selected three groundbreaking innovations per category to go through to the final round.
High-ranking international guests from business and politics are expected to attend the award ceremony, honoring the winners and the nominees, on April 14 in the Allerheiligen-Hofkirche (Court Church of All Saints) in the Residenz Palace in Munich. Most of the new developments will also be on show at bauma. The trade show takes place from April 15 to 21, 2013, in Munich.
