The event attracted 191 00 visitors from 149 countries, an increase on the 180 000 attendees at bauma China 2012. More than 3100 exhibitors participated in bauma China 2014, up 14% on 2012. The exhibitors hailed from 41 countries and some 2097 of them were from China. Germany, USA, Italy, Korea and Japan made up the top five exhibitor countries, excluding China.

“After twelve years of development of bauma China, this show is now not only a platform for product presentation, but also a grand industry party for communication and cooperation for further growth,” commented Eugen Egetenmeir, Managing Director of Messe München.

Li Fangyu, VP Marketing China from Volvo Construction Equipment, added: “bauma China 2014 is taking place in the midst of a recession in the construction machinery market. However, judging by the exhibitors and VIP customers we met here, the trade show is very encouraging. At such times, bauma China is giving us vitality, hope and spirit.”

bauma China will next be held at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre on 22 – 25 November 2016.
