Expanded to 18 halls, the exhibition will feature an indoor space of 200 000 m². The total bauma area will hence span more than 614 000 m². For comparison: the last edition in 2016 had 605 000 m². “Thus, the already largest trade fair in the world extends its total exhibition space even further,” explains Dittrich. A new hall and fairgrounds map facilitates the orientation on the gigantic site. Thanks to the clear division into the individual exhibition sectors, visitors can be managed in a more targeted way. With the two new halls that together cover 20 000 m² bauma will provide space for more exhibitors than in 2016, when 3425 exhibitors took part.
The most important changes at a glance: the largest sector construction machines and attachments is expanded from four to five halls as well as by an additional area outdoors, directly adjacent to the hall complex. The components sector now also has five instead of four halls; formworks and scaffolds moves to Hall B3; and lifting appliances are bundled in Hall C4. New in Hall C6 is the Conference Center North that houses additional conference rooms.
Previously located in Hall B0, which will be used as additional exhibition space during bauma 2019, the special “THINK BIG!” exhibit that shows students career opportunities in the construction and building material machine industries moves to the ICM – International Congress Center Munich. And there is another change that is envisaged: during the trade fair, the traffic-calmed part of Paul-Henri-Spaak-Straße will be turned into the pedestrian zone “bauma Boulevard”, along which visitors and exhibitors can enjoy an international culinary offering.
