AAC at the world’s leading trade fair
bauma 2022 exceeds expectations
The top 10 exhibitor countries were, in this order: Germany, Italy, Turkey, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the Netherlands, France, the U.S., Austria, Spain and China. The share of international exhibitors was nearly 65 percent.
A number of exhibitors from the autoclaved aerated concrete industry also presented themselves to the international visitors at their booths. In summary, the unanimous feedback from these exhibitors was: "a very high quality of visitors, coupled with a serious willingness to invest."
AAC Worldwide participated with an own booth in the exhibition as well. Same here, an incredibly international visitor base with great interest in modern machinery and equipment for the production of autoclaved aerated concrete.
Stefan Rummel, the CEO of Messe München responsible for the event, is pleased: “This bauma has again stoked enthusiasm and fascination! After the world fundamentally changed following the last bauma, we’re really thrilled that bauma 2022 demonstrates the trade fair remains a powerhouse of the construction-equipment industry thanks to our customer’s great variety of innovations, good business deals and many visitors from all over the world.”
A focus on topics of the future
But bauma did not just showcase its strength as a business platform; the trade fair also lived up to its leadership claim in setting topics for the event. Franz Josef Paus, Managing Director of Paus Maschinenfabrik GmbH and Chairman of the bauma Advisory Board says in summary: “We’re very satisfied with how bauma went. The trade fair was enormously popular among our customers and guests. Digitalization and automation are topics that dominate the trade fair, and this trend is irreversible.” Joachim Schmid, Managing Director of the Construction Machinery and Building Material Association of the German Engineering Federation (VDMA) echoes this, saying: “The exhibitors are offering solutions to address current challenges related to CO2 neutrality as well as tackling the issue of skilled worker shortages with automation and digitalization. This is the future. You see this with the traditional companies and with the nearly 50 startups at the trade fair for the first time.”
The next bauma will be held in Munich from April 7–13, 2025.
