12th to 17th January 2009: Bau 2009 fully booked again

Bau 2009 will take place from 12th to 17th January 2009 at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre. An estimated 2 000 exhibitors from 40 countries and over 200 000 visitors from 140 countries are expected to take part in the fair. Bau presents architecture, systems and materials for industrial, commercial and residential building, and interior fittings. Market leaders in the sector come together at this unique platform, which is organized every two years. It is the most important industry event in the European building and construction sector. The range of building materials on display at the fair is divided into product and theme sections. A high-calibre accompanying programme featuring many attractive events rounds off this sector presentation.

Key themes: Building – energy-efficient, barrier-free and R&M
Energy-efficient and barrier-free building and/or renovation and modernization – at Bau 2009 these themes will be reflected in almost all sections of the exhibition. Energy-efficient building and the energy-related renovation and modernization of existing building stock are the top themes in 2009, not only for exhibitors but also in numerous events of the accompanying programme: In the new forum “Future of Building” in Hall C2, well known planners and architects from all over the world will be introducing current projects relating to energy, architecture and solar building.

Brick manufacturers aim to win points in the climate debate
Brick buildings, whether for private or commercial use, are virtually unmatched for sustainability and energy efficiency. Fired clay is a natural material, and in the form of bricks or blocks for walls, or tiles for roofs, it also enhances the visual appeal of buildings. The exhibiting manufacturers will be underlining this in an impressive, comprehensive display featuring many new formats and colours. The spectrum of products on show at the stands of the German and international roofing tile manufacturers exhibiting at Bau 2009 will feature an extensive variety of new models, colours and surface finishes. The traditional colours of natural red or near-natural shades of red and brown will be on show, along with the latest shades of grey and anthracite, which are currently enjoying tremendous popularity as avant-garde colours. Brick combines classic looks with sustainability and energy efficiency – benefits which ensure that building with brick remains popular, especially against the background of the current debate on climate and energy. Not only the quality characteristics – durability and lasting value – speak in favour of brick as a material. It also produces representative building shells and façades.
