Better safe than sorry


Special safety measures apply due to the size of bauma

Special safety measures apply due to the size of bauma. We depend on the cooperation of our exhibitors for their implementation.

Please note the following points carefully for your trade fair planning as well as the "interesting documents' on the right. We can thus ensure a safe and smooth event for exhibitors and visitors.

  • Fire protection

    • Actions involving fire hazards such as fires emitting sparks (fire wood, charcoal, etc.) are strictly forbidden on the entire trade fair grounds.
    • The use of liquefied petroleum gas (e.g., patio heaters) is prohibited due to the exhibition size and booth density for fire safety reasons. The use of electrical cooking appliances is recommended for the preparation of food.
    • Pyrotechnic effects are prohibited on the entire grounds.
    • The use of compressed gases is only allowed for demonstration of exhibits; the use must be restricted to a minimum. Only the daily requirement may be kept on the grounds. The use must be notified in writing to the Technical Exhibition Service with indication of the amount used (Form 1.2). We reserve the right to stipulate additional requirements.

    • Escape and rescue routes must be kept free, both within and outside your own booth area.Within the booth, lines of sight are required for meeting rooms and lounges.Please also remember in your planning to provide for corresponding storage and logistics areas for your catering, so as not to block escape and rescue routes within your booth.
    • At least one fire extinguisher (water extinguisher) must be kept ready at each booth in the open-air site. The exact number of fire extinguishers depends on booth construction. Our teams from our Technical Exhibitor Service (TAS) will indicate the required number at booth acceptance.
    • The inspector responsible on the open-air exhibition grounds is to be informed formally of any welding work (including during setup and dismantling).
    • A person responsible for fire protection at the booth is to be named to the Technical Exhibitor Service for all booths in the open-air site. The person must be empowered to implement instructions concerning preventive fire protection and safety and available during the entire exhibition period on-site and at evening events.
