Although the official start of the 30th bauma, International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines, Construction Vehicles and Construction Equipment, is on 15.04.2013 already the open-air site at the exhibition center in Munich looks like a giant building site.
Excavators and truck cranes are rolling over the open-air site, heavy loaders are delivering machinery and exhibits of gigantic dimensions and already many of the booths are beginning to take shape. Set-up operations on the outdoor exhibition area are in full swing; and from April 1, work starts in earnest in the 16 halls. And that, too, will involve a lot of deliveries and booth construction activities.
Demand for space at bauma has once again risen, and to cater for it, the exhibition space set aside for bauma this year has been increased once more, by 15 000 m² as compared to the last event, to a grand total of 570 000 m². The extra space is being opened up in the northwestern part of the site, where a temporary hall, D1, is now available as well as additional outdoor space.
Over 3300 exhibitors and more than 450 000 visitors from all over the world are expected to come to Munich for bauma 2013.
Entrance tickets to bauma 2013 do not now include free use of local public transport. At the exhibition center, tickets for local public transport can be bought at the West and East entrances and at the entrance to the southern part of the open-air site. Further information:
