THINK BIG! Our career event for students

October 24 – 28, 2022, in the foyer of the International Congress Center Munich (ICM)

The topic of young talent and the promotion of young talent is on the minds of most capital goods manufacturers. Increasing digitalisation requires new training content and often an adaptation of outdated job profiles. Who would be better to explain the professional world to young people who are asking themselves what career they want to take up than apprentices who are in the middle of learning?


Under the motto "THINK BIG! - Live at bauma 2022 - getting young people excited about technology", there will be tinkering, bolting, and trying things out at the companies' activity areas in the ICM. Fun and action, but also information on training, internships and studies will not be neglected. Trainees help with the handicrafts, often they have designed and built the hands-on activities themselves. Here, as with the other "THINK BIG! elements, emphasis is placed on "eye level".

“THINK BIG!” is an initiative from VDMA and Messe München.
