Following the March deadline for applications to exhibit at the next bauma, it is clear that demand for exhibition space is again very high. The upcoming edition (April 11 to 17, 2016) of the World’s Leading Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines, Construction Vehicles and Construction Equipment will take up all the available space – a total of 605,000 square meters– – at the Messe München Exhibition Center in Munich.

Again, the event is set to be very diverse and international; at this point in time, almost 3,000 exhibitors from more than 50 countries have already applied to take part.

Klaus Dittrich, chairman and CEO of Messe München, is very satisfied: “The response from the exhibitors and the high level of demand for space are truly amazing,” he said. However, Dittrich is also very aware of just what problems this brings: “Of course we want to give as many companies as possible the chance to present at bauma. Yet, because of this high level of demand, we will unfortunately not be able to meet all requests for space and participation.”
