There are plenty of good reasons for building-material retailers to attend BAU 2017. Here are three of them:

  • Test innovations at BAU and order them directly
    Most manufacturers adapt their innovation cycles to BAU's two-year cycle. Whether it comes to domestic or international manufacturers, the newest products that come to market are on display at BAU. You can test them right at the fair—and order the ones you like directly. Stay this important step ahead of your competitors.

  • Direct contact with manufacturers—Transfer of know-how from the source
    The retail sector for building materials is about more than just selecting the right materials. It's also about providing information about their correct use and/or installation. At BAU, you can have manufacturers explain all the details about using and installing materials and even show you how it's done. That allows you to not only pass on theoretical knowledge to your customers, but practical tips, as well. You really know what you are talking about—in all the building trades.

  • Consulting expertise thanks to interdisciplinary know-how
    Building-material retailers need a diverse range of expert knowledge to succeed in their industry. Knowledge about various construction materials, their composition, applications and processing is imperative. In addition, they must also be informed about sector-specific processes and transactions. At BAU, all the building trades are at a single location, making this the perfect place to effectively keep yourself on the cutting edge.
