About the event

Covid-19 Update

The coronavirus pandemic led to the cancellation of BAU 2021 as a physical event. Instead, it ran as a digital edition. Organisers are happy to have been able to provide a good alternative at a time of general insecurity. However, now Messe Munich GmbH is working to get BAU as a live trade show in 2023. The dates have been made official – January 9th – January 14t in Munich, Germany. The exhibition grounds at Messe Munich are going to follow the best and strictest coronavirus protective measures to ensure participant safety. By then, hopes are that the pandemic will be under control and trade shows can resume as normal.

Calling Card 

Looking forward to the innovative ideas and solutions in building and architecture? Want to make a statement and elevate your brand name in Europe? Then BAU is where you need to be to achieve both goals and so much more. The international trade show has established itself as an effective procurement platform, where manufacturers and sellers can easily meet, launch products and get a solid return on investment. Over the decades, BAU has turned into the beating heart of Europe’s building and architecture industries. Based in Munich, Germany, BAU is held once every two years and Messe Munchen welcomes trade visitors and exhibitors in early January. Attending BAU makes perfect sense because you’re shaping the future of the industry in real time. 

Business Potential 

Architects, engineers, building firms, planners and investors all fly in from all over the world to network and source new products at BAU. Because BAU has such an impressive turnout year after year, exhibitors tend to keep all their biggest announcements and newest products for the trade show. Italy, Austria, Turkey, Poland and China are the countries with the highest number of trade visitors. So what’s on offer? The product assortment is rich and varied. You have construction planning, insulation materials, architectural services, building security, building maintenance, building management and solar panels. PALLMANN, PUFAS Werk, UZIN, Glas Marte, Glen Dimplex Germany and ORCA Software are a few exhibitor names that have regularly exhibited in the past.

Did You Know? 

BAU prides itself into always been on top of new developments and trends. Each edition unifies around certain themes in order to steer the industry collectively towards to a better future. In most recent years, this has been a mindful and sustainable approach to building and architecture. The most pressing topic has been the challenge of climate change and the search for specific solutions as well as transitioning the industry from a linear to a circular mode. Of course, we also have to take into account how new technologies are changing how we live, so other themes include homes of the future and digital transformation.
