"bauma 2013 has been a lively, busy and productive trade show. The bauma event allows key decision makers to meet in one place in order to see and experience the latest technologies in the construction and mining industry."

Michael Heidemann, Chairman of the Management Board, Zeppelin Baumaschinen GmbH, Germany

"bauma 2013 has shown us all once again that it truly is the world´s leading trade fair for the construction machinery sector. From the first day on, the booth of Zeppelin and Caterpillar was almost overrun with visitors. We have sold more machines at bauma 2013 than ever before and have set a new record. The number of sales talks and consultations we had and the number of high-quality customers contacts from Germany and around the world made one thing absolutely clear: bauma has always managed to boost activity in the sector and its effect continues long after the show closes. So, we are expecting strong after-show business."

Stefan Heissler, Member of the Board of Directors, Liebherr-International AG, Germany

"This has been an absolutely positive trade show for us. We welcomed customers from all around the world at our booths and we signed up lots of new orders. In some product sections we exceeded our expectations by a long way."

Walter Hess, Managing Director, Hess Group, Germany

"bauma is our leading trade fair. No other show has this international reach: We had visitors from Europe, Asia, North America and South America at our booth. The number of visitors and their quality was very positive."

Stefan Hoheisel, Head of Industry Segment, ContiTech Transportbandsysteme GmbH, Germany

"Our expectations of the show were met in full. We were surprised by the crowds of visitors already on the Monday and Tuesday. From the first day on things were buzzing. The audience was extremely international, and we were able to make lots of new contacts. Our visitors came mainly from Europe and the Middle East. Some of our technology highlights such as the Conti Lightweight Technology and the MegaPipe closed-trough belt were brought out specially in time for bauma. We will in future also be keeping faith with bauma."

Stephan Ketteler, Managing Director Atlas Copco MCT GmbH, Germany

"bauma 2013 has again met our expectations. From the first day on interest from the visitors in our offering was very high. bauma, taking place every three years, has a high status in our marketing mix and it is part of our plans again for 2016. Worldwide this is the most important construction and mining trade show for us and it is particularly impressive for the international scope among the visitors and exhibitors."

Nikolay Kokoshkin, Director for Innovations Policy and Marketing, Kovrov Electromechanical Plant, Russia

"This is the first time we have exhibited at bauma, and we believe our premiere at this important international show has been a success. Our technology has aroused much interest from the Russian-speaking world, from the Near and Middle East, Asia and even from discerning European visitors."

Peter Kreutz, Head of Event Marketing/Communication, Mercedes-Benz, Germany

"bauma has proven once again that it is the world´s most important trade show for the construction machinery sector. This platform is remarkable for its broad international scope – which once again rose this year – and for its unique atmosphere; as such it is ideal for celebrating world premieres, getting to know existing customers better and paving the way for new business partnerships."
