There is expectation this year for a high proportion of international exhibitors this year at BAUMA in Munich. This will continue a trend established at the 2007 event, when, of the 3,002 exhibitors, 1,643 or more than 54%, came from 48 countries outside Germany. The countries with the strongest international exhibitor contingents were Italy, the USA, the UK, and China. In addition, inquiries from first-time and regular exhibitors from Asia are more numerous for BAUMA 2010 than ever before, said Exhibition Director, Georg Moller. This all indicates that for BAUMA 2010 there will be a further rise in the proportion of international exhibitors.
There are also more national pavilions planned for BAUMA 2010 than for any pervious event with 11 national stands being prepared. Along with regular national exhibits from Canada, China, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Great Britain, Korea, Poland, Spain, and the United States, there is this year a group stand from Brazil and two additional stands from the United States on mining and tunnel construction. In 2007, some 605 exhibitors from 31 countries came to promote their products and technology for mining, extraction and processing and tunnel construction.
"The increased demand for national pavilions, as well as for individual exhibition space, particularly in the mining section, shows how well established this section has now become," said Eugen Egetenmeir, a member of the management board of Messe München GmbH. "Since its inclusion for the first time in 2004, just two events ago, mining and tunnel construction are promising markets for the future of the industry worldwide. These are sectors that BAUMA can showcase well."
