Actually, if you’re starting right now to plan for BAUMA, you’re a little late. October is cutting it close to secure a hotel room in Munich for the world’s biggest trade fair, focused on the world of equipment. For seven days in April 2010, BAUMA will be the presentation platform for the latest developments and technologies in construction machinery, building-materials machinery, mining machines, construction vehicles, construction equipment and everything in between.

The show, which takes place every three years, will be held at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre in Munich, Germany, from April 19-25, 2010. In terms of exhibition space, BAUMA is the largest trade fair in the world, which means it also has some of the largest attendance (500,000 last time), which means Munich becomes a madhouse and finding a place to stay is exceedingly expensive and difficult. Go straight to the bottom of this story to start your registration and hotel hunt.

In response to the level of bookings from exhibitors, the show has been fully booked for months now — Messe München is even planning to erect additional, temporary halls for BAUMA 2010. This will bring the total exhibition space from 5.8 million sq ft (at the last show in 2007) to just under 6 million sq ft of indoor and outdoor space for the 2010 show. This makes BAUMA by far the largest and certainly the most impressive exhibition ever.

No other industry event features a wider range of products and services. No other exhibition is more international. This is where all of the market’s leading manufacturers and key players will be represented. This is where innovations will be presented for all sectors. BAUMA also places maximum emphasis on communication and promoting business contacts between manufacturers and users. High-ranking decision-makers and their counterparts will meet up at this event to intensify and extend their business relations.

Facts and Figures of the Last BAUMA in 2007

More than 3,000 exhibitors from 49 countries presented their products and applications at BAUMA 2007 (a 7 percent increase over the 2004 show). BAUMA 2007 set a new record for visitor numbers: over 500,000 trade visitors from 191 countries took advantage of the world of construction and mining in all its diversity (a 20 percent increase over 2004). Around 160,000 of these visitors came from abroad (a 35 percent increase). With growth rates of more than 100, Turkey, India, Poland, Russia and the United States saw the largest increases in the number of visitors.

What’s New

By setting up temporary halls, Messe München will be able to offer additional exhibition space to the product sections “Formworks and Scaffolding” and “Construction Equipment and Tools” — both of these being in particularly high demand by exhibitors. This additional space also means that BAUMA 2010 will again be expanding and will beat the previous record for space, held by BAUMA 2007, which took up 5.8 million s ft of exhibition space.

“This development shows that in a tough economic climate BAUMA remains a milestone in the trade fair calendar of the sector,” says Eugen Egetenmeir, a member of the management board of Messe München, “and that this sector is determined to demonstrate its innovative capabilities at the world’s leading trade fair. Messe München, as the organizer of BAUMA, will do everything possible to create the best conditions and provide the same high level of service for that event.”
