digitalBAU 2022: innovation platform thrills the construction industry

With its very successful second edition, digitalBAU which took place from May 31 to June 2, 2022, at the Cologne trade fair grounds underscored its importance to the construction industry. A total of 330 exhibitors, an increase of over 20 percent, presented their digital solutions for the entire value chain of the construction industry to the approximately 10, 000 visitors. Exhibition space grew from one to two and a half halls. The highlights of the comprehensive supporting program were collective expert knowledge in five forums, numerous networking events and the presentation of the German Construction Award (Deutscher Baupreis). Starting in 2023, digitalBAU will take place every year.

Industry trends and trophies
The exhibition areas of the trade fair focused on the topics of the digital construction site/BIM, digital urban planning, smart building, artificial intelligence and robotics. To round it all out, a comprehensive supporting program that was expanded significantly compared to 2020 offered expert knowledge straight from the source and quite a few networking opportunities like the start-up matching event. In five forums, 180 speakers shared their collective expertise and discussed current developments and trends in the industry. At the Innovation Challenge, ten finalists from a preceding online vote presented their innovative ideas as part of live pitches. A panel of experts ultimately honored the winners in the two categories: Pix4D and Hottscan. The presentation of the German Construction Award ( Deutscher Baupreis) was another highlight that took place at the trade fair for the first time. With this award, Bauverlag distinguishes the most innovative companies in the industry in ten categories.

Going annual
Beginning in 2023, digitalBAU will take place every year: the next time as the digitalBAU Conference with accompanying exhibition from July 4 to 6, 2023, in Munich and then again in February 2024 in Cologne.
