The mining industry will be well represented once again with industry heavyweights like BHS Sonthofen, Herrenknecht, Komatsu, Liebherr, Schulte Strathaus and Zeppelin Baumaschinen. Other companies attending the fair will be the Matrix Design Group from the US, Resemin from Peru, Roco9 from Great Britain, Tesab Engineering from Great Britain, Weber Mining & Tunneling from France, and Minearc Systems from Australia.
The trade fair has been viewed as the world’s innovation hub thanks to the tremendous number of innovations that exhibitors present there. This special position will be underscored this year by the innovation hall LAB0, an area that will include such special areas as the bauma Forum, virtual reality, MIC 4.0, startups and a science hub. Think Big, a program that promotes talented young people, will also be included as a key issue for the industry.
bauma will focus on five key topics that will be covered by exhibitors, the supporting program and the trade fair’s very first series of webinars: Zero emissions, The digital construction site, Tomorrow’s construction techniques and materials, The way to autonomous machines and Mining—sustainable, efficient, reliable. The webinar series will begin in March and will be conducted in English. Industry experts will use the new format to explore bauma’s key topics in depth.
