Logistics & Traffic

Here you will find the traffic guide, set-up and dismantling times and other important information on logistics at bauma.

Traffic Guide

bauma's traffic guide takes you quickly and safely to the exhibition grounds.

Please read the traffic guide carefully and forward it also to your booth builder and forwarding agent! It contains all access regulations for setup, fair and dismantling.


In order to increase efficiency and organisation in set-up and dismantling, bauma is now relying on an IT-supported system for logistics processing, FairLog.

The activation date of FairLog can be found in the traffic guide. Please note that FairLog is only available at the times specified in the traffic guide. On all other days a timeslot booking is not necessary/possible.

Delivery of goods

Shipments of goods, letters or other items to be delivered to the exhibitor's stand must contain the following information:

bauma 2025
Name of the exhibitor
Hall + stand number
Messegelände / Willy-Brandt-Allee
81829 Munich, Germany

Messe München GmbH does not take delivery of consignments, letters and other mail intended for exhibitors or third parties.

Exhibitors are advised not to deposit shipments or other objects unsecured in the hall or the outdoor exhibition area during setup and dismantling times.

Authorized freight forwarders

Services with regard to the receipt and dispatch of consignments are offered by the authorized freight forwarders at the exhibition center.

Due to the size of bauma, special security measures apply. We rely on the cooperation of our exhibitors to implement them.

In the following you will find all the information you need about the safety measures, guidelines and instructions at bauma.

Guidelines for approvals on the exhibition grounds are available for download in the bauma exhibitor shop . For implementing the security concept, we are dependent on the cooperation of our exhibitors—therefore, please consider the following information when planning your trade fair participation.

We look forward to a safe and smooth event—for you and the visitors.

Due to the extraordinary risk of injury during set-up, we would like to remind you that any person not actively involved in the set-up is not allowed to access the exhibition halls and outdoor areas. This particularly applies to minors and children. Even during the last set-up weekend, when many exhibits and areas are completed under great time pressure, there is still a danger to life for people without appropriate protective clothing and equipment.

Please note the following points carefully for your trade fair planning as well as the "Important documents" for download. We can thus ensure a safe and smooth event for exhibitors and visitors.

Important points for your trade fair planning

Fire protection

  • Actions involving fire hazards such as fires emitting sparks (fire wood, charcoal, etc.) are strictly forbidden on the entire trade fair grounds.
  • The use of liquefied petroleum gas (e.g., patio heaters) is prohibited due to the exhibition size and booth density for fire safety reasons. The use of electrical cooking appliances is recommended for the preparation of food.
  • Pyrotechnic effects are prohibited on the entire grounds.
  • The use of compressed gases is only allowed for demonstration of exhibits; the use must be restricted to a minimum. Only the daily requirement may be kept on the grounds. The use must be notified in writing to the Technical Exhibition Service with indication of the amount used (Technical Guidelines no. 1.2). We reserve the right to stipulate additional requirements.
  • Flammable liquids are to be kept to a minimum. Only the daily requirement may be kept on the grounds. The use must be notified in writing to the Technical Exhibition Service with indication of the amount used. We reserve the right to stipulate additional requirements.
  • Escape and rescue routes must be kept free, both within and outside your own booth area. Within the booth, lines of sight are required for meeting rooms and lounges. Please also remember in your planning to provide for corresponding storage and logistics areas for your catering, so as not to block escape and rescue routes within your booth.
  • At least one fire extinguisher (water extinguisher) must be kept ready at each booth in the open-air site. The exact number of fire extinguishers depends on booth construction. Our teams from our Technical Exhibitor Service (TAS) will indicate the required number at booth acceptance.
  • The inspector responsible on the open-air exhibition grounds is to be informed formally of any welding work (including during setup and dismantling).
  • A person responsible for fire protection at the booth is to be named to the Technical Exhibitor Service for all booths in the open-air site. The person must be empowered to implement instructions concerning preventive fire protection and safety and available during the entire exhibition period on-site and at evening events.

Photography and filming permits

Filming, photography as well as the preparation of drawings and video recordings within the fairgrounds is permissible only for persons approved by Messe München GmbH who hold a valid permit issued by Messe München GmbH. Any photography or other recordings of other exhibitors’ stands is impermissible except in cases where permission has explicitly been granted. This also applies to the grounds and premises of Messe München GmbH. In case of any violation, Messe München GmbH can demand that the recorded material be surrendered and can take legal action to achieve this. Only accredited journalists/bloggers and the official service partners of Messe München GmbH are exempted from this.

This is how you get your photography and filming permits for bauma


  • Please note that only cranes, fork-lift trucks and working platforms may be used, which are provided by the competent service partners of Messe München GmbH pursuant to our Technical Guidelines no. 5.2 for safety reasons. You can find an overview of the contractors in our Exhibitor Shop .
  • Due to the very high volume of visitor traffic on bauma, special traffic rules apply. Further information will provided here soon.

Safety in booth construction

If there is compliance with the following requirements, Messe München GmbH will not neet to approve a plan (cf. Technical Guidelines, number 4.2ff)


  • Booth and advertising height is maximum 3 m
  • Booth size smaller than 100 m²
  • No booth covering

Open-air exhibition grounds

  • One-story, building surface area fewer than 50 m²
  • Setup height lower than 5 m

Booth designs differing from the above-mentioned requirements are to be submitted for approval no later than six weeks before the official setup start with scaled booth design plans (floor plan, view, and drawings) to Messe München GmbH, TAS Department (by e-mail, as a pdf file or by post). In addition, multi-story booths and special structures (e.g., bridges, stairs, cantilever roofs, galleries, etc.) are subject to approval on principle. You can find additional information about the "building regulations" in Form 1.3.

We need static proof for all buildings/facilities higher than 5 m for booths in the open-air site.

Please make sure in your planning that many room containers unfortunately do not meet the requirements for soil carrying capacity (stipulated payload of 3.0 or 5.0 kN/m² depending on the type of use of the rooms; cf. Technical Guidelines). Please refer to the notice on container constructions.

Unsecured loads above people are not allowed. Loads (e.g., weighting material) must be connected friction-locked in non-combustible material.

At evening events in the outdoor area, additional own safety lighting of the booth to the general escape routes is to be provided.

Stand guarding and theft prevention

Pursuant to the Technical Guidelines no. 2.6, Messe München GmbH or the security service contracted by it for the exhibition grounds provides guards at the gates and on the exhibition grounds. However, we cannot guarantee complete guarding and surveillance of the trade fair grounds. Exhibitors must arrange for guarding booths, exhibition goods and other objects at a booth if required. You can find corresponding order forms in our Exhibitor Shop. We call your attention to the fact that there are increased risks for the exhibits and other objects brought in during setup and dismantling times.

Exhibitor badges

Please remember to order exhibitor badges for all your employees well in advance.
