Information about the Media Dialog

Media Dialog for bauma

What is the Media Dialog?

The Media Dialog is the perfect platform for a professional exchange between exhibitors and international trade journalists.

In personal discussions, exhibitors have an opportunity to inform journalists about their new products and techniques, call attention to their exhibits and have their companies appear in the media early.

Trade journalists from Germany and abroad can use this unique opportunity for their presswork prior to the fair.

When and where?

The meetings are going to take place at the ICM – Internationales Congress Center München on the grounds of the Messe München trade-fair center from January 28 to 29, 2019.

Why participate?

This event gives exhibitors access to a concentrated group of international trade journalists a few months prior to the exhibition—at exactly the right time and place for them to introduce their new developments and their exhibits.

Journalists gather at a single location for two days and meet with several exhibitors of bauma to find out about innovations and trends directly from the source—and before the fair even begins.

Who is invited?

Basically, all exhibitors participating in bauma 2019 can participate in the Media Dialog for a fee of EUR 920 plus VAT.

Journalists are invited by Messe München (in keeping with the Terms of Participation).

In principle, journalists who will not receive an invitation were able to participate in the Media Dialog at their own expense. Participation is subject to verification of a press ID and a bylined article in a relevant trade publication.

Additional information is available from the bauma press team.
