In around eleven months, the world’s leading trade fair for architecture, materials and systems will return to its usual winter slot. From January 13 to 17, 2025, BAU in Munich will be the international meeting place for architects, engineers, investors, retailers, and tradespeople. The focus will be on solutions and products for the future of construction.
Just under a year before the trade fair is due to start, the registration figures for exhibitors and exhibition space are on a par with BAU 2023. It means that BAU 2025 will once again be booked out and achieve full occupancy of the 18 halls. To date, a host of companies have already confirmed their participation at BAU 2025. They include key players like SCHÜCO, dormakaba, Egger, Hörmann, and Sika.
Given the currently challenging circumstances in the industry, Messe München CEO Reinhard Pfeiffer sees this as an altogether positive signal: “With this clear commitment to BAU, the leading companies are sending a clear signal to the market despite the somewhat difficult situation. As a result, we are convinced that BAU 2025 will provide fresh impetus for the industry.”
Dieter Schäfer, Chairman of the BAU Advisory Board, stresses the importance of the trade fair for the construction industry: “BAU is the most important meeting place for the construction industry, where it showcases its latest products and solutions. Ultimately, the entire construction segment will benefit from a successful BAU.”
Dieter Schäfer from the Board of Trustees, which is instrumental in preparing the supporting and forum program, adds: “We are convinced that BAU 2025 will once again reflect the innovative strength of the entire construction industry, and at the same time set the pace for construction of the future.”
Next year’s key topics at BAU include urban/rural/neighborhood transformation, resource conservation, resilient and climate-friendly construction in the face of natural disasters or pandemics, boosting productivity through modular construction and cost-effective construction with the use of robotics and artificial intelligence.
