Following TrendSet, the pilot trade fair for Messe München under coronavirus conditions was held successfully in July, IAA Mobility took place in September with an elaborate safety and hygiene concept.
The measures were well received, showing that it’s possible to hold trade fairs again in these challenging times.
Three exhibitors aiming to attend bauma, which is being held in Munich from 24 to 30 October 2022, participated, all reporting positive feedback. Anke Hadwiger, from Zeppelin Baumaschinen GmbH, stated, “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, managing director of Liebherr-EMtec GmbH, added: “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.”
Komatsu’s Marco Maschke stated that 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 – at the proper distance, of course. In that respect, the hygiene concept shown at IAA Mobility convinced me that bauma will be a very safe and, as always, very successful event.”
As an international industry gathering, bauma offers a comprehensive overview of market leaders and innovations. At the upcoming edition, the focus will also once again be on a wide variety of future themes in the construction, building materials and mining machinery industries through live presentations, rounds of discussions and lectures. The trend topics for bauma 2022 consist of, ‘The road to zero emissions’; ‘Digital construction site’; ‘Construction methods and materials of tomorrow’; ‘The road to autonomous machines’ and ‘Mining: sustainable, efficient and reliable’.
