The big an­nounce­ments at Bauma China 2018

The 9th edi­tion of Bauma China, the in­ter­na­tional trade fair for con­struc­tion, build­ing ma­te­rial, min­ing and con­struc­tion ma­chin­ery, was held from Novem­ber 27 to 30, 2018, at the Shang­hai New In­ter­na­tional Expo Cen­tre (SNIEC) un­der the theme 'smart, dig­i­tal, sus­tain­able'.

Bauma China at­tracted 73% of its ex­hibitors from China. The ex­hi­bi­tion area span­ning 330,000 square me­ters in­cluded two new halls. Com­pared to its pre­vi­ous edi­tion, the expo at­tracted a to­tal of 3.350 ex­hibitors from 38 coun­tries, an in­crease of 13%, and 212,500 vis­i­tors, an in­crease of 25%.

Among the vis­i­tors, 94% came from Asia, such as China, Korea, Rus­sia, In­dia, Malaysia, Ja­pan, Tai­wan, Thai­land, In­done­sia, and Sin­ga­pore.

China, said: “2018 was a spe­cial year! In the ex­cep­tional mar­ket en­vi­ron­ment in China this year, Bauma China demon­strated why it has ev­ery rea­son to be called the lead­ing trade fair for the Asian con­struc­tion ma­chin­ery mar­ket. The ex­hi­bi­tion clearly showed where this in­dus­try is head­ing: smart, dig­i­tal and more sus­tain­able tech­nolo­gies are the fu­ture.”

Qi Jun, chair­man of China Con­struc­tion Ma­chin­ery As­so­ci­a­tion, said: “Bauma China 2018 was very suc­cess­ful. It has made his­tory in many as­pects: the num­ber of ex­hibitors, the ex­hi­bi­tion space and the to­tal vol­ume of or­ders made on site. The ex­hibitors have es­pe­cially ben­e­fited and felt the en­thu­si­asm of users and their ex­pec­ta­tions for the fu­ture.”

The next edi­tion of Bauma China will be held at the Shang­hai New In­ter­na­tional Expo Cen­tre from Novem­ber 24 to 27, 2020.
