Mark your calendars for April 23–29, 2007, for Bauma 2007 to be held in Munich, Germany, at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre. The halls are already booked, so the demand for open-air space is filling quickly. Because of this demand, exhibition space increased by 30,000 square meters to more than 530,000 square meters compared to 2004. The last Bauma featured a total of 2,801 exhibitors from 47 countries and hosted more than 416,000 visitors from Germany and abroad.
Many international exhibitors have increased their space considerably. Chinese exhibitors plan to represent themselves nearly five times as large as the last Bauma show; India asked for more than four times more space; and Japan five times more. Exhibitors from Austria, Luxemburg, Turkey, Korea and Greece doubled their demand.
