bauma NETWORK: Six construction machinery trade fairs of Messe München

In addition to the world's leading trade fair bauma, Messe München has extensive skill in organizing additional international construction machinery trade fairs. For example, Messe München organizes bauma CHINA in Shanghai and bauma CONEXPO INDIA in Gurgaon/Delhi together with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) as well as bauma CONEXPO AFRICA in Johannesburg.

In December 2015, Messe München successfully expanded its portfolio further with the purchase of the leading Russian construction machinery trade fair CTT, now renamed bauma CTT RUSSIA. In March 2017, the bauma NETWORK was again expanded with M&T Expo in the form of a license agreement with SOBRATEMA (Brazilian Association of Association of Technology for Construction and Mining).
