Record demand at bauma 2016

This year’s bauma attracted around 580 000 visitors from 200 countries to Munich/Germany from 11 to 17 April 2016. That is a rise of more than 9 %. After Germany, the top ten countries of origin among the visitors were Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, the Netherlands, UK, Sweden, the Russian Federation, Poland and the Czech Republic. A total of 3 423 exhibitors – 1 263 from Germany and 2 160 from abroad – from 58 countries presented their products, developments and innovations on a record 605 000 m2 of exhibition space. Exhibitors from outside Germany accounted for 63 % of the total – higher than ever before.

As well as breaking records in terms of exhibitor and visitor numbers and exhibition space, bauma is also a great place for filling the order books. Stefan Heissler, a member of the Board of Directors of Liebherr-International AG, confirms: “bauma 2016 was a tremendous success for Liebherr. We received many orders from a wide variety of different markets. In some segments our expectations were even exceeded.“ Jürgen and Stefan Wirtgen, Managing Partners in the Wirtgen Group, can only agree with this assessment: “Our presentation at this year’s bauma is the most successful so far in the history of the company.“ The mining section at bauma also received a very positive response in this context, as Erwin Schneller, Managing Director of SBM Minerals, reports: “My personal highlight was that we signed up some unexpected sales at the show.“

The next bauma takes place from 8 to 14 April 2019 in Munich.
