bauma China 2010: additional space and 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 bauma China 2010 by 10,000 square meters from 220,000 square meters 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 2010 in November.
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. Amongst others, they include well-known companies such as Beijing Shougang Heavy Duty Track Manufactory Co., Ltd., CSR Times Locomative & 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 ever.

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," Exhibition Group Director Collin Davis remarked.

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. 112,674 visitors from 124 countries attended the fair in 2008.

bauma China 2010 is being held at the SNIEC in Shanghai from 23 26 November.
