bauma 2010 in Munich takes place as planned despite restrictions to air travel

despite restrictions

The 29th bauma, International Trade Fair for Construction Machinery, Building Material Machines, Mining Machines, Construction Vehicles and Construction Equipment takes place as planned from today despite the severe restrictions to European air travel. For organisational and logistical reasons, it is not possible at this late stage to delay the start or extend the length of the fair.
"Quite a number of the exhibitors who are reliant on long-haul flights to get to bauma are affected by the closure of most European airports, and it is expected they will not be able to staff their stands on time. We are in close contact with Munich Airport and the airlines in order to bring these people to Munich as quickly as possible, as soon as the authorities say air travel can resume. From talks with the affected exhibitors, we know that within Europe most have switched to cars or coaches," said Klaus Dittrich, Chairman & CEO of Messe München GmbH.
Adjustments have therefore been made to the traffic concept to cope with the higher number of participants expected to arrive by road.
In addition Messe München has quickly hired and trained additional personnel for the start of the fair to take inquiries from visitors at those stands without personnel. The vast majority of the 3,150 stands, however, will be staffed by the exhibitors' own personnel.
A telephone hotline has been set up to handle inquiries from exhibitors and visitors to bauma 2010: +49 (0) 89 949 11348. This hotline will be open between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. CET.
