The safety and hygiene measures taken at TrendSet in July and IAA Mobility in September were well received by everyone involved. It shows that it’s possible to hold trade fairs again even during these challenging times. Three exhibitors from bauma, which is being held in Munich from October 24 to 30, 2022, were there and were able to see the conditions on-site. They are looking forward to bauma 2022 in Munich.
Anke Hadwiger, Head of Trade Fairs, Events & Training at Zeppelin Baumaschinen GmbH, is very optimistic about 2022. “After seeing the ‘new trade fair conditions after coronavirus’ for myself in person on-site during IAA, the hope and anticipation of having an almost normal bauma 2022 are growing even more. The trade fair developed and implemented new and forward-looking concept ideas. We’re now preparing ourselves for the industry gathering with interesting inspiration, impressions and a positive mood.”
Joachim Strobel, MD of Liebherr-EMtec GmbH, adds, “The pandemic showed us lots of potential for alternative communication and collaboration, but at the same time also confirmed the huge importance of personal contact and dialogue with the customer, partners and business associates.”
For Marco Maschke, Manager German Office European Distribution Management at KOMATSU, the importance of bauma 2022 is also undisputed. “For KOMATSU, bauma was, is and remains the leading trade fair for our industry worldwide. Our customers and sales partners tell us time and again just how important direct contact with the manufacturer is in our industry. In that respect, the hygiene concept shown at IAA Mobility convinced me that bauma will be a very safe and successful event."
As an international industry gathering, bauma offers a comprehensive overview of market leaders and innovations. In the upcoming edition, the focus will also once again be on a wide variety of future topics in the construction, building materials and mining machinery industries in live presentations, rounds of discussions and lectures. The trend topics for bauma 2022 are - The road to zero emissions, Digital construction site, Construction methods and materials of tomorrow, The road to autonomous machines, and Mining—sustainable, efficient, reliable.
