The Asian construction industry used Bau China to present product innovations and exchange information on trends in the industry. The trade fair and the comprehensive accompanying program demonstrated that smart, sustainable and energy-efficient solutions continue to be the major topics in the industry.
The 778 exhibitors (2018: 656) came from 20 countries. Top exhibitor countries apart from China were (in this order): Germany, Japan and Italy. Net exhibition space grew by 6 percent compared to the previous year.
“With over 61,000 visitors, the trade fair grew significantly by 17 percent compared to the previous year. The trade fair was also able to increase the number of international visitors considerably, by 20 percent,” reports Reinhard Pfeiffer, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Messe München Pfeiffer. Bau China thus makes an important contribution to the construction industry in Asia by promoting the transfer of specialist knowledge at an international level and driving innovation.
Since the event’s premiere as Fenestration Bau China, exhibition segments have consistently been integrated in line with Bau in Munich. This evolution and the new variety of topics are illustrated by its new name Bau China-Fenestration Bau China was integrated as an exhibition area. The new segments now account for more than 5,000 square meters, including Architecture Solutions/Cade, Digitization & Building Automation, Flooring, Roofing and Waterproofing.
The next Bau China will take place from October 29 to November 1, 2020 in Beijing.
