bauma Africa is continuing to expand: instead of the originally planned 200 exhibitors, the premiere of bauma Africa (September 18 to 21, 2013) is now expecting to host around 400 exhibitors. The resulting increase in demand for exhibition space means the event is now being expanded again, by another 15,000 square meters, to a total of 50,000.
Major players like Atlas Copco, Bauer, Bell, ELB Equipment, Goscor Group, Herrenknecht, Hyundai, LiuGong, Pilot Crushtec, Putzmeister, Sany, Shantui, Sumitomo, Terex Finlay, Vermeer, Wacker Neuson, Wirtgen and XCMG are already signed up for the first edition of this "International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines and Construction Vehicles" taking place in the Gallagher Convention Centre, Midrand Johannesburg, South Africa.
Also very satisfactory is the high level of interest from abroad. In total there will be nine country pavilions at the show: from Austria, China, Finland, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Korea, Northern Ireland and Spain.
