Every three years, Messe München hosts the bauma trade fair in Munich. Billed as the world’s leading sector event for construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines and construction equipment, the exhibition space totals 640,000 m2, making it the largest trade show on earth.
For 2019, Messe München expects to have 3,500 exhibitors from 60 countries. Unlike other large equipment fairs, bauma has dedicated a portion of its program to mining. Mining represents roughly 20% of the exhibition. The mining sector has its own hall: C2. According to Messe München, a total of 578 exhibitors indicated they are involved with mining, extracting and processing raw materials. Visitors reviewing exhibitor information will note the mining symbol and the phrase Mining Inside. Miners hoping to make the most of their time, however, will need to narrow the field. For them, E&MJ offers a selection of “must-see” stands. What follows is a compilation of announcements leading up to the event.
