Exhibitor testimonials BAU 2019

January 19, 2019

From 14 to 19 January 2019 BAU took place on the exhibition grounds. The almost 2,250 exhibitors had an excellent opportunity to present their products and services.

Dieter Schäfer, Chairman of the Exhibitor Advisory Board of BAU and Chairman of the Board of Management of Deutsche Steinzeug Cremer & Breuer AG:
“For the exhibitors BAU 2019 was a very successful trade fair. There were two main reasons for this. First the quality of the visitors and the international spread reflected among them has further increased. And second the fact that Messe München set out the additional exhibition space from a visitor perspective and thereby further developed the unique world of themes covered by BAU. For Deutsche Steinzeug, as one of the few architectural ceramics manufacturers worldwide, BAU is a must and we are very satisfied with how it went.”

Martin J. Hörmann, personally liable partner, Hörmann Group:
“We were again very happy with how the trade fair BAU went. Once again we presented lots of product innovations in gates, doors, frames and operators and these attracted a great deal of interest. One of the highlights was our extended booth space where we presented for the first time our new product area on access control systems.”

Gunther Adler, State Secretary in the German Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community:
“BAU 2019 is the most important showcase of the capabilities of the German and international building industry. Here the German building sector demonstrates its excellent innovations strength.”

BAU is a tremendous platform for presenting this to the trade audience.”
