The next Bauma trade fair – dedicated to innovations in the construction, mining and agriculture industries – has been postponed to October 24-30 2022 and will be held in Munich, Germany.
Event organisers announced the decision in April 2021 due to uncertainty with regards to Covid-19.
Messe München Chairman and CEO, Klaus Dittrich, said Bauma is the world’s leading trade fair which represents the entire spectrum of the industry.
The last Bauma event welcomed participants from more than 200 countries.
Joachim Schmid, Managing Director of the Construction Equipment and Plant Engineering Association in the German Engineering Federation (VDMA), supported the decision to postpone the event.
“The industry will now do everything it can for a strong Bauma in October 2022,” he said. “Even without a health crisis, companies need to overcome challenges such as digitalisation, autonomous construction sites and sustainability, and stay abreast of changes to avoid falling behind. For this, they need Bauma as an innovation barometer and networking platform. In next year’s October, we will all meet again in Munich.”
In consultation with the industry, the most important industry topics have already been defined for Bauma 2022. Reflecting on the megatrends of digitalisation 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 but 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 digitalisation and climate protection.
