MESSE MÜNCHEN, 24-30 OCTOBER 2022
33rd Edition of the World’s Leading Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines, Construction Vehicles and Construction Equipment.
Initially, bauma was to be held from April 04 to 10, 2022. Despite the pandemic, both the industry’s response and the booking level was very high. However, in numerous discussions with customers, there was a growing recognition that the April date involved too many uncertainties in view of the global pandemic. Considering the particularly long planning times for exhibitors and organizers of the largest fair in the world, the organizers, in agreement with the exhibitors, preferred to postpone the 2022 edition to October.
Regardless of the postponement, the technical and organizational planning for bauma 2022 continues. The core of bauma 2022 will be the face-to-face event, augmented and expanded by digital offerings. “This allows customers from all over the world to participate in bauma, even if they can’t or don’t want to travel to Munich,” explains Klaus Dittrich Chairman and CEO of Messe München.
In consultation with the industry, the most important industry topics have already been defined for bauma 2022. Reflecting the megatrends of digitalization and sustainability, bauma 2022 will focus on the following topics:
- The road to zero emissions
- Digital construction site
- Construction methods and materials of tomorrow
- The road to autonomous machines
- Mining—sustainable, efficient, reliable
These topics will not only play a central role in the exhibitors’ presentations; they will also be illustrated in special areas such as the VR Experience and will be a central theme in the supporting program. The categories of the bauma Innovation Award were also be adjusted accordingly. For the first time, applicants can participate in the categories of digitalization and climate protection.
