bauma China 2010: State of Economy Means Additional Space, More Key Players

Due to consistently strong demand for exhibition space at the upcoming bauma China, the International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Construction Vehicles and Equipment, additional space is being made available at the outdoor exhibition site that can be used on a temporary basis. This will allow organizers to increase the amount of space that the Shanghai New International Expo Center (SNIEC) has available for the event from 220,000 to 230,000 square meters.

Construction work on the new halls at the north end of the SNIEC is also moving ahead at full speed. Two of those halls are supposed to be used for the first time ever during bauma China, which is scheduled for November 23 to 26, 2010.

Based on the current level of registrations received for bauma China 2010, approximately 1,700 exhibitors from 37 countries will occupy all of the available exhibition space. They include such well-known companies as Beijing Shougang Heavy Duty Track Manufactory Co., Ltd., CSR Times Locomotive & Rolling Stock Machinery Co., Ltd., Kaeser, Keestrack and Quingdao Ketai Heavy Industry Machinery Co., Ltd., which are participating in bauma China for the first time.

"Thanks to close cooperation with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) in the United States, Caterpillar OEM Solutions and Terex will be participating in bauma China again in 2010. As a result, all of the product-group categories at bauma China will have international key players, which underlines yet again bauma China's character as a leading exhibition in Asia," remarked Exhibition Group Director Collin Davis.

The level of registrations for bauma China 2010 reflects positive economic developments in the construction sector in China and Asia. Market researchers are currently forecasting a new record in the volume of imported mining, building-construction and civil-engineering machines in China between now and the end of 2010, with total volume expected to reach some five billion euros.

In addition to new records in the amount of exhibition space and the number of exhibitors, the number of visitors expected to attend bauma China 2010 is also expected to increase. A total of 112,674 visitors from 124 countries attended the fair in 2008.
