Come with us to the world’s largest construction exhibition and get a feel for the show, raise your international profile and meet with some potential business partners. 

BAUMA Munich runs from the 8-14 April 2019. The show will expect around 600,000 visitors, 3,700 exhibitors from 60+ countries in 18 halls. BAUMA features everything related to construction, building materials and mining machines as well as construction equipment and vehicles.

100 UK companies are already exhibiting at BAUMA including a large UK Pavilion of 30 exhibitors, run by Joanna Oliver MBE, Director of Global Programmes for the Construction Equipment Association.

The Midlands Engine is excited to announce that we will be taking a delegation of companies from the Midlands to the event from 9-12 April 2019. If you are new to the German market this will be a great opportunity to see if this is the right show for you. If you are an experienced exporter this will be a unique chance to meet existing clients and find new ones. If you are one of the 1000+ companies on the show’s waiting list for a stand, being a delegate on our mission will allow you to be present so you do not miss any sales opportunities.
