By Graham Anderson18 March 2016

Taking place every three years, Bauma will have around 3,400 exhibitors and is expected to attract half a million visitors.
The show will take up an enormous 605,000 m2, and it is booked to capacity again for 2016, with over 700 companies on the waiting list.
In the last issue of International Construction, we previewed the Greatest Show on Earth-moving, and the following is a show-guide geared towards buyers visiting the event.
Construction equipment manufacturers have been working hard to boost the efficiency and performance of their latest machines. Key trends among the Bauma launches include increased versatility, with more machines designed for high performance in tight spaces, as well as advanced technology included as standard on many machines, and a real drive to boost fuel economy and versatility.
