Covid-19 Event Update

The coronavirus pandemic compelled organisers to BAU 2021 to be cancelled as a physical event. The rendition took place as a digital edition. The organisers were pleased with their ability to provide a viable alternative during a period of general uncertainty. Messe Munich GmbH is working to host BAU as a live trade fair in 2023. The dates have been set: January 9th through the 14th in Munich, Germany. To ensure participant safety, the Messe Munich exhibition grounds will follow the latest and strictest coronavirus protective measures. By then, the pandemic should be under control, allowing trade shows to resume as usual.

A Brief Overview of BAU

Looking forward to innovative ideas and solutions in building and architecture? BAU is the ideal international trade fair dedicated to developments, breakthroughs and new approaches for the full building and designing buildings and a meeting place for architects, planners, and engineers from all over the world. Outside the significant influence on a business level, the event has traction with members of the public!

Why stop everything you are doing just so you can find a decent hotel to book. Better invest your resources into the event itself and leave your professional accommodation for BAU to GETA ltd. Our team casts a wide net and works with guest houses, hotels, and apartments in Munich across all budget sizes. You tell us your preferred room type and price range, and we secure you a business travel booking that saves you money and has public transport service to the event!

Why Your Visit Is Worth It

BAU has been in operation for over half a century, which has allowed the trade fair to grow and become a crucial meeting point for international markets. You have to exhibit here, because:

  • 180,000+ square metres of exhibition space are used;
  • 2,000+ exhibitors have a booth at the fair;
  • 250,000+ international visitors are present;
  • All the decision makers from all the trades are present;
  • You see all relevant innovations in materials and products in one place.

Industry Relevance

The very first BAU was held back in 1964 and has been a pretty consistent presence in the building and construction industry. New editions arrive at Messe Munich once every two years, which allows for each edition to host a manner of new innovations and keep the conversation lively about changes on all levels in the value chain. The massive crowds visiting can be explained by the fact the trade fair is preferred by professional visitors as well as the public. As far as products are concerned, booths feature presentations of flooring, insulation materials, architectural services, construction planning, building maintenance, building management, building security, solar panels and interior design.

Who Are You Going to Meet?

BAU builds itself to be a comprehensive trade fair with a strong international appeal, and we have the data to back up this claim. Exhibitors come from 45 countries, which was a new record achieved in last edition. When we break down exhibitors by nationalities, we see a strong presence from the Netherlands, China, Turkey, the Czech Republic, Poland, and Switzerland. A look at visitors sees a great variety in background professionally. Exhibitors will have the chance to network with civil engineers, structural engineers, interior designers, investors, planners, researchers, representatives of building trades and even students. Thanks to the AWA Award, which gives chances to students of architecture to get their foot in the door, BAU draws in fledgling architects!
