BAUMA or not to BAU, that is the Question

This week more than 400.000 construction professionals of Europe are gathering to the biggest industry trade show in the continent, BAUMA. This exhibition, taking place every 3 years, is quite an event, including e.g. real Zeppelin flying around the exhibition area to advertise one of the big machinery makers.

What always makes me wonder is that every 6 years there are two main construction exhibitions taking place in the exact same Munich location during the same spring period. BAU was in January (takes place every 2 years) and now BAUMA in April (takes place every 3 years). Competition between these two organizers is quite silly, and because of the rigid place reservation systems (if you are out of one exhibition one time, you will not have a good place anymore in the next event) all companies need to have proper places also during this "double-spring".
But based on the experience of the first three days, at least for Peikko it is worthwhile to be in both events. Our BAUMA booth was very full during the first three days, please find a picture taken on Monday morning prior opening below.

All the customers, all the co-operation partners, please come to visit us for the second time this year !!! At least the weather in Munich seems to be great, sunny and + 20 degrees C.  The exhibition is open until Sunday.
