Welcome to bautec 2018!

Berlin Skyline

Taking place for the eighteenth time in 2018, bautec has become established as one of Germany's leading construction industry trade events.

The focus of visitor interest was on the concept of energy-saving which integrates the building exterior with intelligent systems engineering, sustainable and energy-efficient solutions, climate protection measures and the use of state-of-the art building materials and methods.

Demand for construction stems mainly from the private, public and housing sector, whereby ever stricter stipulations as regards the implementation of sustainable and energy-efficient solutions have led to an even greater demand. The consequences of this positive trend were evident at bautec, which once again confirmed its role as one of the most important events for Europe’s construction industry.

For exhibitors and visitors, the unique benefits of bautec lie in the all-inclusive combination of products and services, a comprehensive program of theme-centered conferences and congresses, and a broad spectrum of up-to-date industry information.

Get ready to make valuable contacts and take part in inspiring discussions.

Exhibitor Statements bautec 2016

bautec is the leading trade fair for the construction industry. All the decision-makers are here. I found the special show in Hall 24 especially interesting. We need to construct high-quality housing at great speed and low cost. There were lots of examples which impressed me.

Dr. Barbara Hendricks, Federal Minister, Environment, Nature Conservation, Building & Nuclear Safety

I was very impressed. The challenge facing our industry now is to build housing cheaply, sustainably and at low cost. This is where I can see solutions that precisely meet these demands.

Gunther Adler, State Secretary, Federal Ministry, Environment, Nature Conservation & Nuclear Safety

This was our first time back at bautec after many years and we were surprised at the many visitors on our stand. Our entire range attracted a great deal of attention. Lots of professionals came looking for detailed information and new ideas. We are very satisfied with the many visitors we had.

We were back at bautec after an absence of ten years and were happy to be here. We had a lot of visitors on the first day and were completely surprised by the keen interest from abroad, in particular from Iran

Detlef Heise, branch manager, Peri Schalung, Gerüst, Engineering

Germany’s construction industry faces many challenges this year, particularly where housing is concerned. For bautec 2016 it was the right decision to address this topic. Shows, events and discussions were the dominant theme of the past four days and provided our sector with a major impetus. I am looking forward with optimism to bautec 2018, which we will continue to give our full support.

Michael Knipper, Chief Executive of the German construction industry association

We are always at metall IT. The fair is an ideal venue for Berlin, the new Federal States, and for us. We managed to meet nearly all our customers here at some point. Face-to-face meetings are still important.

Axel Brockob, managing director, NetSoft

We need a trade fair in this region which consumers and trade visitors can embrace. That is the only way the industry and the skilled trades can showcase their abilities. The quality of bautec has increased significantly, which is something we took into account with both our participation and display.
