BAU—XXL format in 2020
BAU 2020, taking place between January 14 and 19, 2020, will be a real XXL
event. Because it will include the two brand new exhibition halls—C5 and
C6—which increase the capacity of the Messe München exhibition center
to around 200,000 square meters. And BAU 2020 will be taking up all of this
space—18 halls in total. It will be the biggest BAU ever. There´s also a new
exhibition section, on Lighting and Smart Building, to add to the
comprehensive spectrum of themes presented at this show.
Expanding the exhibition space was a very important step for BAU, says Dr.
Reinhard Pfeiffer, Deputy CEO of Messe München: "Firstly, we can now
accommodate in part the exhibitors’ requests for more space. Secondly we can
reduce the waiting list we have for some sections of the show, and thirdly—
perhaps the most important point—we can integrate two new future-oriented
themes into BAU, in a section on Lighting and Smart Building."
Despite more space being available for the 2020 event, already now—one year
before the show starts—it is getting hard to find free slots. "The run on BAU is as
big as it ever was," explains Markus Sporer, Deputy Exhibition Director of BAU.
"The job of planning and allocating space is in full swing. In many segments, and
therefore in 15 of the 18 halls, we are more or less fully booked, apart from one
or two remaining slots. The sections in which we are better able to offer free
space are BAU IT, gate and parking systems and architectural/artificial lighting."
Today is already clear that when BAU opens its doors on January 14, 2020, all
18 exhibition halls will be fully booked, down to the last square meter. And with
the extra space at our disposal in 2020, it´s certain we will set a new record for
exhibitor numbers. In fact we are expecting around 2,200 exhibitors from at least
45 countries. On the visitor side, too, the chances are good that we will exceed
250,000. The organizers are also aiming to attract even more trade visitors from
abroad—the aim is for about one third of the total.
The two new halls C5 and C6 are also bringing a few changes in terms of the
exhibition layout. For example the section on glass, so far housed in Hall C2,
moves into Hall C3. BAU IT, Europe´s biggest exhibition of software for the
building industry, moves from Hall C3 into the new Hall C5. The new section on
Lighting/Smart Building takes up Hall C2 and also incorporates solar shading
systems, daylight management, arcade rooflights, roof domes, artificial lighting
concepts, building automation/control and lifts.
The integration of the theme of lighting into BAU is a logical consequence, says
Exhibition Director Mirko Arend, because: "The theme of lighting concepts is
playing an ever bigger role in the overall concept for a building. In our new
exhibition section we combine the theme of light with the theme of building
automation. It´s about light deflection, lighting control, lighting concepts, daylight
versus artificial light. This new segment will also be a link to existing sections
such as façade systems, windows and doors and energy technology."
As you can imagine, preparations for BAU 2020 are in full swing. Key themes,
forums, special shows, the supporting program—"we are coordinating closely
with our partners and have already made excellent progress," says Mirko Arend.
