“bauma is certainly the highlight in the sector—nowhere else have we the opportunity to meet so many customers and potential customers from so many different regions. And where else do you get such a focused overview of the building sector? Above all, I have to stress the quality of the talks because customers seek us out quite specifically at the new location. From a marketing point of view bauma is a very important instrument. It offers us the chance, compressed into a single location and in a short time frame, of presenting our products, solutions and services to existing and potential new customers. But it´s also much more than that: the entire sector and related sectors meet up here. We had customers from a wide variety of countries.”

Federico Pagliacci, Development Vice President, Soilmec, Italy

“Despite some uncertainties the international trade fair for construction machinery and building material machines is showing a positive development. And in this bauma year in particular, we should make use of these signals. bauma, with the presentation of the Innovation Awards kicking off the event, is without question the ideal platform for presenting innovative new developments, because it has a big impact in the industry around the world. Again in 2016 the world´s largest show of construction machinery will deliver impetus for further growth in our sector.”

Hans-Christian Schneider, CEO, AMMANN Group, Switzerland
“bauma is an opportunity for Ammann to showcase our products and professionalism on a global stage. The stand displays the comprehensive nature of the Ammann product line, which ranges from rammers to asphalt and concrete plants.

That is a message we are eager to communicate with the global audience bauma attracts.”

“For us bauma 2016 was a tremendous success. We are very satisfied with the response and with the high quality of the trade visitors. This fair offers us, as exhibitors, the chance to present our innovations capability and market leadership to a very broad, international audience and to communicate our competence in a very targeted way. For the visitors to bauma, this is a good opportunity to get an overview of the full spectrum of formwork and scaffolding technology.”

Jonathan Stringham, Head of Marketing, BOMAG, Germany
“Already in the first few days at bauma, we had welcomed very many guests from all over the world at our booth. The atmosphere is, as always, unique.

For BOMAG there is no other fair worldwide of comparable importance, and we are already looking forwarding to being here again next time.”

Achiel Sturm, Director Channel Marketing EMEA, Topcon, Netherlands
“bauma is a major event and brings the best of our industry together. The event has such a global reach and draws global customers to Munich every three years. The event itself seems very little affected by economic and other global factors. Compared with many national and regional events, bauma keeps on growing bigger and generating attention.”

Anja Wiehoff, Communication Manager, Atlas Copco, Germany
“We are very satisfied with the fair this year and the sales figures just speak for the importance of bauma, including at international level. We exceeded the goals we had set ourselves. bauma manages to always re-invent itself and develop further. All the customers and target groups are here, including at international level. This year the customers from Scandinavia were strongly represented. We talked to visitors from the Benelux countries, from Peru, Colombia, Turkey, India, Indonesia, the US, Australia and Poland. For Atlas Copco, this is an exciting and successful bauma 2016.”

Jürgen Wirtgen und Stefan Wirtgen, Managing Partners, Wirtgen Group, Germany
“bauma as the leading trade fair has always been a kind of barometer for the industry and from the start it had a very special significance for our company. Our bauma presentations every three years reflect the development of our family firm. 2016 is another big and important milestone for us. For the first time we have the brand Benninghoven on board and this is supplementing our product program of asphalt mixers. Our presentation at this year´s bauma is the most successful so far in the history of the company.”
