Even though it’s still a long way off, there’s already great anticipation! Bauma, the world’s leading trade fair for construction machinery, building materials machinery, mining machinery, construction vehicles and construction equipment continues in 2022 and takes place from the 4 to 10 April 2022 at Neue Messe München.
For seven days dozens of cranes rising up into Munich’s sky and mining excavators as tall as houses, which weigh more than 200 tonnes, will astonish the trade fair’s over 600,000 visitors.
bauma – The largest construction machinery trade fair in the world
Launched in 1954, this construction machinery trade fair is the only place to be for the construction, building material and mining machine sectors. Held every three years in Munich, the industry’s top fair bauma attracts an increasing number of exhibitors and visitors each time. Attending in huge numbers, they make new business contacts and enter into deals directly. Corporate exhibitors display their goods and services in an international environment to industry players and all the major opinion leaders. New lines of business are opened up during the fair’s run. Visitors who’ve attended return again and again.
3,700 international exhibitors will be displaying innovative products and services at bauma 2022 on around 614,000 square metres corresponding to 18 trade fair halls, plus the entire outdoor areas. Machines and their deployment options are performed in live shows. Preparations begin six months before the exhibition starts to ensure that all the exhibits are allotted their space in good time.
The four thematic areas of the trade fair are:
- All around construction sites
- Mining, extraction and processing of raw materials
- Production of building materials
- Components and service suppliers
For anyone who wants to immerse themselves deeper into the subject of the construction and construction materials industry, the free bauma forum in Hall C2 is the place to go. Here you can attentively listen to presentations, press conferences and/or podium discussions in which exhibitors, associations and partners present current product developments, trends and market analysis. The 12th International Information Centre “Forschung live” (“research live”) highlights the current state of research and science. Here domestic and foreign colleges and research institutions present their findings in construction and construction material research as well as in mining technologies. In addition, there’s the THINK BIG! career event for students.
