Bauma 2007, to be held in Munich April 23-29, 2007, will be the largest collection of construction equipment ever assembled in one place! Additional exhibit space has been added to accommodate exhibitors from the emerging economies of China and India. The space allocated to Chinese manufacturers is five times greater than in 2004; that for India four times more; and Japan by five times. Bauma's organizers say exhibitors from Austria, Luxemburg, Turkey, Korea and Greece have doubled their demand.
Bauma is of course the stage on which many manufactures launch new machines. In its March issue, International Cranes & Specialized Transport, ACT's sister publication, will provide a comprehensive guide of new equipment to be showcased.
