Preparing for Bauma

15 April 2008

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.
