bauma 2010 Expects High Proportion of International Exhibitors


The deadline for receipt of registration applications from exhibitors has now passed, but the organizers of bauma 2010, Messe München GmbH, are very satisfied with the response so far. Interest from exhibitors across all product sections is so strong that it accounts for the entire exhibition space reserved for the event – a total of 540 000 m2 spread between the exhibition halls and the open-air site. "Inquiries from first-time and regular exhibitors from Asia are more numerous for bauma 2010 than ever before," revealed Georg Moller, exhibition director. This all indicates that for bauma 2010 there will be a further rise in the proportion of international exhibitors.

Of the 3002 exhibitors at the last bauma in 2007, 1643 came from 48 countries outside Germany, which is equivalent to more than 54% of the total. The countries with the strongest exhibitor contingents were Italy, the U.S., Great Britain and China.

This development is a clear signal that bauma is the key event in the worldwide exhibition calendar of the sector, despite the current economic climate.

For the next bauma leading industry associations in Germany, under the auspices of the VDMA, Germany’s engineering federation and conceptual sponsor of bauma, will be launching an international innovations prize, divided into five categories and open to all exhibitors at the fair. Exhibitors can find out about the award at and send in their applications. The deadline is September 15, 2009.

Messe München International has built up global competence in the organization of international trade fairs for construction machinery. In Munich, it hosts bauma, the world’s leading trade fair for the sector, and in Shanghai, it organizes bauma China, the leading event of its kind for the Asian market. bauma China takes place every two years.

The latest products from the international construction, building-materials and mining machinery sectors will be on show at bauma in Munich from April 19 to 24, 2010.
