The organisers of the bauma 2013 exhibition in Munich have revealed that 11 months before the show is due to open, all stand space has been sold. This is despite the fact that the exhibition space has been extended to a record 570,000m2. Organised by Messe München, the International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines, Construction Vehicles and Construction Equipment now has a waiting list for all of its sections. Located in the Bavarian capital Munich, this is the biggest trade show in the world. It will take place in Munich from April 15th to 21st, 2013. To cope with demand a further 15,000m2 of space was made available in the north-west corner of the exhibition site. Georg Moller, exhibition group director at Messe München International said, "With this additional space we can now admit more exhibitors than at the last event. Nevertheless it is still not possible to accommodate all those who want to take part, or to meet in full the space requirements of all participants."
At bauma 2010, there were 3,256 exhibitors from 53 countries and over 420,000 visitors from more than 200 countries. But bauma 2013 is on track to exceed the results of the previous event, which saw attendance hit by the volcanic ash cloud that affected the aviation sector.
