What to see at Bauma 2022?
Transporters, forklifts, cranes, machines and equipment, and the set-up teams in the middle of it all: The set-up of bauma, which will take place from October 24 to 30 on the outdoor area of the Munich exhibition grounds, is well underway. On October 11, other exciting segments will start their set-up phase in the 18 halls.
More than 3,100 exhibitors from around 60 countries
The world’s leading trade fair for construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines, construction vehicles and construction equipment expects the visit of more than 3,100 exhibitors from around 60 countries. Spread over a total of 614,000 square meters (the same as roughly 86 soccer fields), split into 414,00 square meters of outdoor space and 200,000 square meters of hall space, bauma is the largest trade fair in the world in terms of exhibition space.
More than 30 cranes make up the crane forest
In addition to numerous excavators, dump trucks, asphalting machines and mixing towers, when bauma opens its doors on October 24, participants can also once again look forward to the famous “crane forest” with more than 30 cranes.
Construction images and webcam
You can see a few pictures showing what the outdoor area of bauma currently looks like during construction, how small the large machines and systems are before they are assembled and how extensive some stand constructions. Meanwhile, the bauma webcam offers an all-round overview.
The German Federal Minister for Digital and Transport, Dr. Volker Wissing, and Bavaria’s Minister President, Dr. Markus Söder, together with the CEO of Messe München, Stefan Rummel, will officially open bauma on October 24, 2022 at 9:30 a.m.
in the bauma FORUM in Hall B0 at the ICM – Internationales Congress Center München. Media representatives will have the opportunity to ask questions and take photos. The official tour of the trade fair will follow.
At 2 p.m., the Deputy Bavarian Minister President and Bavarian Minister of Economic Affairs, Hubert Aiwanger, will then also start a tour of bauma in Hall A3.The world’s leading trade fair for construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines, construction vehicles and construction equipment will be held from October 24 to 30 at the Munich exhibition center. More than 3,100 exhibitors from over 60 countries will be presenting their exhibits, innovations and trends across 614,000 square meters in the halls and outdoor areas.Here you can get your accreditation now in advance.Information on our TV and broadcasting service can be found here.
Supporting program and info highlights
This year, in addition to the exhibitors and their exhibits, bauma will offer a comprehensive supporting program with many formats, some of which new.
Among the strengths of the world’s leading trade fair is its diverse supporting program. Here, established companies, start-ups, associations and research institutions will present ground-breaking solutions and discuss the top current trends in the industry.
bauma FORUM with a different key topic each day
This year knowledge transfer has a new central location in the bauma Innovation Hall LAB0. The bauma FORUM, with lectures, presentations and panel discussions, will be placed here, for example. From October 24 to 28, the forum program will focus on a different key topic of bauma each day. These range from “Construction methods and materials of tomorrow” to “Mining—sustainable, efficient and reliable” to “The road to zero emissions”.
On October 24, the winners in the five categories of the bauma Innovation Award 2022 will also be presented in the forum. With this prize, the VDMA (Mechanical Engineering Industry Association), Messe München and the top associations of the German construction industry will honor research and development teams from companies and universities that are bringing practical leading technology for the construction, building materials and mining industry to market readiness. The prizewinners have an equal focus on resources, the environment and people.
Science Hub and Start-up Area
The Science Hub is located right next to the forum. In this area, ten universities and scientific institutes will provide information on the latest status of their research. Here, too, the key topics will offer structure.
Another segment of the Innovation Hall in the Internationales Congress Center München (ICM) is the revitalized Start-up Area, where promising young companies can present themselves to a specialist audience.
MiC 4.0 stand demonstrates new data interfaces
In order to develop a uniform, cross-manufacturer and machinery-independent communications form for the entire construction process, the VDMA and the Main Association of the German Construction Industry founded the “Machines in Construction 4.0” (MiC 4.0) working group at bauma 2019. One of the previous results is the MiC 4.0 Bus, which is an open, cross-manufacturer data interface between construction machinery and accessory equipment. At the MiC 4.0 stand in the LAB0 Innovation Hall, visitors can see a demonstration of the new interface in action.
The VR experience attracted many visitors back in 2019. At bauma 2022, this will switch focus to the digitization of construction sites. Visitors to the VR experience can immerse themselves in the construction sites of today and of tomorrow and experience the interactions between people and machines for themselves in the digital space. The bauma VR experience will once again be part of the LAB0 Innovation Hall this year.
Career prospects for young people
THINK BIG!—an initiative of the VDMA and Messe München—is primarily aimed at students. In the ICM, companies will present “Technology up close” with a large workshop show, hands-on activities, games and information about a future career in the industry.
