The world´s largest trade fair in Munich, Germany, spread over 605,000 sq m, has been booked to capacity.
Bauma 2016 Munich, the world´s biggest construction and mining equipment expo is around the corner. The trade-fair centre has been expanded to occupy 605,000 sq m of exhibition space which is booked to capacity. In an unprecedented move, some prospective exhibitors, who were on the waiting list, have accepted to be only listed in the Bauma directory and be digitally present through the media video screens. Nearly 40 per cent of exhibitors are global leaders in mining equipment, who are aggressively positioning their equipment and services to woo Indian customers. A significant paradigm shift, driven by global recession in mining while India projects a steep rise in this business.
Bauma innovation awards, an ongoing tradition, remain in vogue. Klaus Dittrich, Chairman & CEO of Messe Mnnchen, announced the 15 nominated companies and their innovations on the occasion of Bauma. The Innovation Award is presented in five categories: Machinery; Components; Construction Process/Construction Work; Research and Design. In total, 118 applications were received from Germany and abroad. The jury has now selected three new developments in each category to go forward to the final round. All of the nominated innovations offer significant practical benefit and economic potential, they are sustainable and they make a contribution towards energy- and resource-efficiency and/or towards the humanisation of the workplace. The final awards will be presented at a gala function during the expo. The coming edition of the world´s leading trade fair will showcase new products and outline emerging trends in terms of advancements and innovations in construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines, construction vehicles and construction equipment.
Cranes rising high into the sky and gigantic machinery has been a familiar and exciting skyline of Bauma. But in the shade of all the XXL lifting gear and heavyweight mining machinery, this world-leading trade fair has many, much smaller, but equally innovative products and solutions to interest trade visitors.
Allied equipment like formworks are critical success factors, to achieve construction speed, quality and economy. Formwork experts who are tackling these challenges will again present a large number of products and innovations at Bauma.
Following its successful launch at Bauma in 2013, the second ´THINK BIG!´ initiative is being held at Bauma. The organiser is the German Engineering Federation, the VDMA, in cooperation with Messe Mnnchen. On 3,000 sq m of space, ´THINK BIG!´ will feature an extensive and interactive programme focusing on technical training, educational and career opportunities in the construction and building materials machinery industry.
Over 3,400 exhibitors and more than half a million visitors are expected at this Bauma. These numbers also spell pressure on the roads around the Messe Mnnchen exhibition center and on the local public transport system. To ensure your journey here is as trouble-free as possible, Messe Mnnchen is offering a number of services. EQUIPMENT INDIA advises all to visit their website www.bauma.de for details.
