bauma is the world’s leading sector event for construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines, construction vehicles and construction equipment. With a total exhibition space of 605,000 square meters, bauma is also the largest trade show in the world. In 2016 bauma broke again all previous records, attracting a total of 3,425 exhibitors from 58 countries, and 583,736 visitors from 219 countries. bauma takes place every three years in Munich; the dates for the next edition are April 8 to 14, 2019.
All participants returned from bauma with very positive impressions. At the fair and in the bauma Forum, many discussions revolved around the continuously increasing digitization, automation, autonomous machines or fully automated processes. VDMA members may receive presentations upon request.
Crowds came - around 20,000 pupils visited the bauma trade fair highlight THINK BIG! and informed themselves about training and study opportunities in the construction machinery sector. A result that can hardly be surpassed.
On the eve of bauma, five companies and one university received the bauma Innovation Award 2019 for the best technical innovation in their category. The prize was awarded for developments that point the way to the future, are economical, environmentally friendly, practicable and take particular account of people in their working environment.
Preparations are in full swing. As the technical and conceptual sponsor of the bauma trade fair and partner of Messe München, VDMA organizes events for the partner country of Canada and for future apprentices, supports the bauma Forum and will be a point of contact at the trade fair throughout the week.
From 6 to 8 March, 26 apprentices and trainees from 6 companies together with their instructors came to Wacker Neuson in Reichertshofen to see their work at Werkstatt Live!, the show as part of our youth event "THINK BIG! - Live at bauma 2019".
What's the status quo of research and science? What topics have an influence on the industry? What's in the pipeline? Research live - 11th International Information Center for Universities and Institutes will provide insights here.
This prize is coveted. The award is highly valued, even beyond the sector. Products that receive the Innovation Prize are considered pioneering. Entries have therefore once again been submitted by companies, universities and research establishments across Europe and beyond.
The site in the east of Munich will be expanded to 614,000 square meters, the number of halls will be increased to 18. The organizer anticipates that more exhibitors will attend than at bauma 2016. bauma will be held from April 8-14, 2019. A video explains the new structure.
