Welcome to bautec 2020!

Berlin Skyline

Taking place for the nineteenth time in 2020, 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 2018

The key to solving Germany’s housing shortage problem is to industrialise housing construction. I welcome the fact that bautec made modular construction one of its main topics. The special Housing Construction Show impressively demonstrated that not only is modular construction affordable, it is also appealing in terms of architectural design. In order to build more we also need more workers. I was very pleased that construction industry companies are making use of bautec as a platform for attracting newcomers. By establishing the Construction Career Center bautec has found the right solution. The message delivered by the Construction Career Center was impressive: those who choose a construction career today can find secure and attractive jobs in a booming industry.

Dieter Babiel, chief executive of the German construction industry association Hauptverband der Deut

I visited bautec twice in one week. The fair always inspires everyone involved in construction and housing. On the one hand one can view all the industry’s new products and on the other one can see that they have a practical value. That is why I find bautec so fascinating every two years.

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

It was a great pleasure to be at bautec once again this year. It is exciting to see what new developments there are. Exhibitors at bautec face the same challenges as the entire industry: digitalisation, making technological progress and increasing efficiency. The companies have many ideas on how to confront these issues and in doing so benefit everyone in the process. Overall, I found the mood very good here.

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

Our results at bautec were outstanding. The halls were very busy and we had excellent meetings on all days of the fair. Our partners from the industry put up fantastic stands which naturally attracted visitors. I am very grateful to the fair’s organisers who did a great job.

Andreas Schuh, master craftsman of Berlin Guild of Sanitation,Heating & Air-conditioning Professions

With the help of the industry we took a big leap forwards in terms of quality. The stand was very busy, including the guild’s stand offering advice. All in all it was a super event. After the fair we will begin with preparations for bautec 2020. In my opinion we need this fair, and both we and the Berlin Guild of Sanitation, Heating and Air-conditioning Professions will do everything to ensure it stays.

Norbert Band, master craftsman of the Brandenburg Regional Guild

We made a huge effort at bautec this year. The combination at bautec is just right.

Ingeborg Esser, managing director of Bundesverband deutscher Wohnungs- und Immobilienunternehmen

The roofing guild drew our attention to bautec and this is the first time we were represented as an exhibitor. We had numerous interested visitors from abroad, and in particular many customers from the local region on our stand. We are very satisfied with the fair so far.

Christian Hartig, regional sales manager for the north, FAKRO Dachfenster GmbH

bautec was a big success for us. We had very interesting meetings both with trade visitors and the general public. We are also delighted that we won the first place in the bautec.INNOVATION AWARD contest for our Brunner heating control unit.

Richard Wasmeier, regional manager, heating systems, Ulrich Brunner GmbH

We are very satisfied with bautec 2018. We had excellent meetings and lots of customers on our stand. That is why we are looking forward to bautec 2020. Our involvement in the Construction Career Center assisting newcomers was a success too.

Uwe Pfeiffer, Geberit Vertriebs GmbH

Our participation in the special Housing Construction Show was a success. It gave us an opportunity to present our system and we met lots of new people. At the bautec special show, focusing on individual housing construction topics might be worthwhile, for example construction of houses, apartments, office buildings, car parks, schools and logistics sites.

Uwe Peuker, Goldbeck GmbH

In short, outstanding. We established many new contacts and were able to cultivate lots of existing customer relations. We are delighted that our DUO plastic combined formwork system met with keen interest and was honoured with a bautec.INNOVATION AWARD.
