Exhibitor statements

“For an entire week the whole construction industry looked to one place – Munich. bauma as the world’s leading trade fair of the construction industry is an indispensable international platform for us. It’s a place where we network with our partners and customers in keeping with our motto, ‘Doka connects’. For us it will be the best bauma ever, which is also our internal slogan. This year we are presenting even more innovations than ever before. And we are meeting even more decision makers than ever before. We have massively expanded our market presence in the area of ceiling formwork, and with our 30-meter-high scaffold tower we’re showing off a real eyecatcher – this time Doka represents formwork AND scaffolding even more intensively than ever before. Digitization and sustainability are our key drivers for the coming years, and at this year’s bauma we have already demonstrated how digitized construction processes and (partially) automated devices mitigate the skilled worker shortages, increase safety on construction sites and at the same time reduce CO2 emissions. The feedback from our customers and guests was overwhelming. We are very pleased.”
– Robert Hauser, CEO, Doka

“For ZF Friedrichshafen AG, bauma as the world’s leading trade fair is the most important event in the construction machinery industry – a place where visitors can experience innovations and tomorrow’s global megatrends up close. This powerful atmosphere of progress is 3 the optimal place for us to showcase our product highlights. This year, all of our customers and important business contacts were at the fair. The number and quality of the professional conversations were very high. To discuss themes and trends of the future, for us there is no better platform than bauma.”
– Gernot Hein, Head of Communication & Public Affairs / Press Spokesperson, Industrial Technology Division, ZF Friedrichshafen AG

“bauma is a completely unique experience. What’s so special about it is that it brings together the entire construction workflow – the machinery itself and the technology and software that makes it as efficient and as accurate as possible. The opportunity to gather so many professionals in our industry from all over the world in one place is priceless. In our 90th anniversary year, it’s been absolutely incredible to meet with so many people face to face and celebrate – both our existing customers and new connections. It is essential for the development of our industry that we’re able to come together and discuss the challenges we collectively face, and the digital technologies that can help make our work even more productive, precise and profitable.”
– Uli Hermanski, CMO & Executive VP, GM Positioning Solutions Business EMEA at Topcon Positioning Group

“In a nutshell – this is where the industry meets. As the world’s biggest construction machinery trade fair, which into the bargain happens just a few kilometers from our headquarters in Schrobenhausen, bauma is pretty much a home game for us. That’s why we’ve also been there for more than 40 years now – the trade fair is and will always be checkmarked in our calendar. On the whole the visitor quality and visitor quantity were both very good once again. As in 2019, this year we also welcomed numerous guests, interested visitors and of course long-standing partners and friends at our redesigned and CO2-neutral stand. We had lots of top-quality conversations, and the feedback we got for our stand and our innovations was simply fantastic.”
– Dr. Rüdiger Kaub, Managing Director, BAUER Maschinen GmbH
