Warning about dubious hotel offers

More and more travel agencies, especially English-speaking ones from the UK, are currently approaching our exhibitors and offering allegedly “entitled discounts” on hotel accommodation. We would like to point out that Messe München GmbH has not commissioned any travel agencies, especially in the UK or the U.S., to contact exhibitors and sell hotel rooms. Please be alert if you are contacted from English-speaking telephone numbers that also give the impression of calling in the name and on behalf of the event team. Do not book any hotel rooms over the phone if you receive such a call, and do not disclose any payment information over the phone.

Our recommendation: For hotel bookings, please contact your trusted travel agency or the Messe München partner companies named on the bauma website.

What happens if Messe München must postpone or cancel the trade fair at a later date because of COVID-19?

If bauma is canceled, the obligation to pay the participation fee does not apply if a contract has already been concluded with Messe München GmbH; participation fees already paid will be refunded after the event has been canceled. Ordered services that have already been provided, however, must be paid for. If the event is postponed again, we will notify you as soon as possible and inform you about the further procedure.

Do we exclude exhibitors / visitors from crisis areas?

What is Messe München doing to protect the health of all guests?

See information here.

Why was the fair postponed?

The postponement is the result of many discussions between Messe München and top industry representatives as well as the Advisory Board. Considering the worldwide pandemic and the long planning times for major capital goods trade fairs, the decision had to be made now. This provides exhibitors and visitors a secure planning basis for preparing the upcoming bauma.

What measures are taken to ensure a high number of visitors?

For visitor groups who are unable to attend bauma to also participate, we are currently developing digital solutions that will enable us and our exhibitors to increase their reach and that of bauma.

What happens in the event of an official travel ban from or to the exhibitor's country of origin?
