Bauma Attracts Highest Number of Visitors
May 8, 2013—An impressive 530,000 visitors from over 200 countries converged on the Messe München Exhibition Center between April 15 and 21. Not only did this edition of Bauma break all previous records for exhibitor numbers and exhibition space, it also attracted the highest number of visitors ever. "This is very good for our industry in these turbulent times and it will certainly give it a boost," said Johann Sailer, chairman of the Construction Equipment and Building Material Machinery Association of VDMA and President of the Committee for the European Construction Equipment Industry (CECE).
Klaus Dittrich, chairman & CEO of Messe München, is more than satisfied: "Our exhibitors were delighted with the quality of the visitors here and with the international spread represented among them. Good business has been done here. With over 200,000 visitors from outside Germany, the number of international attendees was higher than ever before. The response this year has simply been outstanding."
The 'Top Ten' countries of origin among the visitors were: Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, the Russian Federation, France, Netherlands, Great Britain, Sweden and Poland. Indonesia, Bauma’s partner country this year, was also strongly represented, with a high-ranking political delegation and around 800 visitors.
