Bauma China gets underway
27 November 2012
An opening ceremony heralded the start of the sixth bi-annual Bauma China show in Shanghai, which got off to a flying start today with crowds pressing to enter the show.
Held between 27 and 30 November at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, this year the show is +30% bigger than the 2010 event, thanks to the addition of five new halls (N1 to N5), which have been completed over the last two years.
Organised by Messe München and various other supporting bodies, over 2,600 exhibitors are present at the event, which covers 300,000 m2 of floor space.
Visitor levels remain to be seen of course. Bauma China 2010 was attended by 155,615 people, making it by far the largest construction equipment show in Asia.
