Theme-based orientation in the exhibition halls

New organization system for Bau exhibitors and visitors

180 000 m2 – that is the hall space being taken up by Bau 2013. It is the equivalent of 25 football fields, dedicated to building materials, technologies and systems. The space at Bau is divided up into categories according to product or material type, but for Bau 2013 this established system of organization is being overlaid with another orientation system, based on themes.

In future the exhibitors at Bau will not only be allocated to certain halls according type of product or materials, they will also be found under a specific theme heading. Manufacturers of ceramic, for example, also come under the theme of “façades”.

Visitors to Bau can orientate themselves according to the symbols: For example, the façade symbol indicates where to find products that are mainly used on façades.
