bauma tour of BFT

World´s biggest trade fair outdares European flight ban

› bauma 2010 is over, and all exhibitors are fully focused on their day-to-day business again. Although the flight ban imposed on most parts of Europe prevented many visitors from attending, including many members of the delegation from the partner country, India, as well as about 50 exhibitors from overseas, the general sentiment among the approx. 3,150 exhibitors from 53 countries was good upon the closing of bauma.

bauma tour

For the first time, BFT INTERNATIONAL offered guided tours through the exhibition halls. Relevant topics had been determined before in order to attract interested attendees from among the industry audience and to adhere to the set timeline. As a result, the companies participating in this offering had the opportunity to present themselves and their products. Here, too, the “fly ash” incident had a tangible impact. Nonetheless, both attendees and companies showed great interest so that BFT is determined to offer guided tours also in the future.


Statements on bauma 2010

The exhibitors’ statements collected by BFT editorial staff at trade show reflect the information in the final report provided by the organizer. According to this report, some exhibitors had closed more deals than originally expected already half-way through the event.


bauma facts and figures

With a total exhibition space of 555,000 m², which was fully booked, and a 60% share of international exhibitors, new all-time highs were attained as regards the total num­ber of exhibitors, involvement of international exhibitors and space occupancy. Over 415,000 visitors from more than 200 countries attended bauma 2010. Compared to the previous event held in 2007, this translates into a 17% decline. “However, as we are witnessing the reversing trend that bauma 2010 has triggered for the industry on a global scale, we are very optimistic with a view to bauma China 2010 to be held in Shanghai, which has been fully booked already. By the same token, the increasing interest in the new event bC India 2011 in Mumbai has resulted in a signifi­cant expansion of the originally planned exhibition space,” says Klaus Dittrich, Chairman of Messe München GmbH.

In keeping with the three-year interval, the 30th edition of bauma will be held from 15 to 21 April 2013 in Munich.
