Additional Value of Attending

BAUExpo keeps its eyes firmly focused on the future of construction and domestic life, which is why in addition to the standard product offerings organisers have designated two special zones – Smart Home and Security.

The concept of Smart Home is rapidly becoming an intrinsic facet of modern living. In an era of digital transformation, the ability to remotely manage and monitor one's living space has evolved from a novelty to a practical necessity. Whether it's adjusting the thermostat, remotely operating window shutters, or initiating the home sound system from a distance, the connected home has transitioned into an indispensable companion.

Reflecting this major shift, the ‘living of the future’ stands front and centre at BAUExpo. The focus is not solely on elevated comfort, but also on enhanced flexibility and energy efficiency. The Smart Home zone serves as an interactive showcase of these concepts, illustrating how technology can seamlessly integrate into the domestic environment, elevating convenience and sustainability.

Equally important is the issue of security. A safe and secure living environment is integral to quality of life. At BAUExpo's Security zone, visitors are presented with solutions to promote home safety from the outset of construction. Exhibitors present a spectrum of options, encompassing both mechanical and electronic approaches to security. This encompasses everything from fortified gates, burglar-resistant doors and windows featuring safety glass to cutting-edge keyless entry systems, alert systems, fire alarms, and surveillance technology.

Construction and the energy sector go hand in hand, which is why BAUExpo addresses its role by integrating the specialist exhibition ENERGIE into its format. ENERGIE looks at the variety of advancements made in energy- and cost-efficient construction practices. Visitors can inspect the full spectrum of strategies and solutions to reduce energy expenses. The exhibition serves as a knowledge hub, answering the most crucial questions visitors ask themselves: How can energy costs be effectively minimised? What are the most impactful investment choices? What funding opportunities are presently available?

Exhibitors are not just there to offer products, but provide detailed explanations and answer any questions visitors might have. They offer invaluable advice on aspects ranging from financial incentives for adopting new systems to strategic alterations in construction methods. Renovation-minded individuals, in particular, will find a wealth of information about grants and exchange bonuses that can support their plans.

The exhibition's thematic coverage of energy-related matters is seamlessly intertwined with a solid lineup of expert lectures. These lectures, a staple of the specialist program, illuminate diverse facets of energy efficiency, offering in-depth insights and practical guidance. The ENERGIE exhibition spans a diverse number of themes. You’ll be able to stay on top of industry trends and innovations in bio heating oil, energy renovation techniques, energy advisory services and energy passes, a range of energy-efficient systems and services, the integration of energy efficiency with emerging construction materials, geothermal technologies, and much more.
