Your participation in the bauma supporting program

Do you want top visibility in the construction machinery industry? Present your innovative technologies, products and services at the bauma FORUM or apply for the International bauma Innovation Award!

The contents of this page refer to bauma 2022. Information on bauma 2025 will follow here in due course.

bauma FORUM - the heart of the bauma supporting program

The bauma FORUM powered by VDMA offered international keynotes, presentations and panel discussions around the key topics of bauma 2022. It took place from 24-28 October 2022 in the innovation hall bauma LAB0.

Benefits as a speaker at the bauma FORUM

  • Here, exhibitors, universities, startups and associations can benefit from an optimal presentation opportunity also outside of their trade fair booth.
  • Each day of the bauma FORUM focuses on one of the key topics of bauma, highlighting the respective topic from different angles. Exhibitors can apply for a 30 minute speaking slot referring to one of the key topics.
  • Use this opportunity to present your innovative technologies, products and services to an international and high-level audience. You will also benefit from high visibility through our intensive promotion of the forum programme before, during and after the show.

We are looking forward to your contribution for bauma!

The key topics at the bauma FORUM 2022:

Day 1 | Construction methods and materials of tomorrow

Whether it's green cement, 3D concrete printing, serial construction or aerated parts—exhibitors revolutionising the construction industry with their deep-tech solutions in the field of construction processes and materials are given a stage here.

Day 2 | The way to autonomous machines

The future of construction machinery is autonomous—from robots on construction sites, sensor technology and data processing to new operating concepts for autonomous driving. Present your solution for the autonomous future of the construction industry here.

Day 3 | Mining—sustainable, efficient and reliable

Whether it regards climate protection, resource efficiency, interoperability, digitalisation, machine-to-X communication or the autonomisation of mining—on this day, you can present your innovation for the mining industry.

Day 4 | Digital construction site

The construction site of the future is digital and networked. Solutions in the area of digital twins, a uniform “digital language” and with the same understanding of the transmitted data content, telematics, remote control, building information modelling, virtual and augmented reality and, at the end of the day, the much desired M2M communication show the way to more resource efficiency and work facilitation.

Day 5 | The way to Zero Emission

Present your innovative technologies showing how the path to Zero Emission in the construction machinery sector can succeed—from production to the construction site, with material and process innovations for decarbonisation to sustainable mobility drives through green hydrogen or electrification.

The International bauma Innovation Award

At the International bauma Innovation Award, you will experience sustainable and economic developments with high practical benefits.

Every three years, bauma is the innovation driver for the international construction, building materials and mining machinery industry. No other trade fair of the sector presents so many new products and developments. The VDMA, Messe München and the top associations of the German construction industry announce the bauma Innovation Award every year at bauma.

bauma – a driving force behind innovations

The International bauma Innovation Award was presented for the 13th time at bauma 2022. The competition is a joint initiative between bauma and the following well-known trade associations:

  • German Engineering Federation (VMDA)
  • German Construction Industry Association (HDB)
  • Central Association of the German Construction Industry (ZDB)
  • German Building Materials Association (BBS)

The organizers award the prize to research and development teams from companies and universities that are bringing practical leading technology for the construction, building materials and mining industry to market readiness while focusing on resources, the environment and people.

After a multi-stage selection process, the following five lucky winners were able to receive their prize this year:

  • Climate protection: Liebherr France SAS with its hydrogen-powered excavator,
  • Digitalisation: MiC 4.0 Machines in Construction with one common digital language for construction sites,
  • Mechanical engineering: Herrenknecht AG with its continuous advance,
  • Construction: Holcim (Germany) GmbH with CPC – Carbon Pre-stressed Concrete
  • Research: Freiberg University of Mining and Technology Mechanical Engineering In-stitute with Deep Sea Sampling.
