Bauma 2016 -

The Biggest is

Bigger Than


Bauma 2016 is bigger than ever

as the available exhibitor space

area has been increased. This

may be good for the organizers

and companies wanting to exhibit but for journalists trying to see

as many companies as possible, it becomes even more challenging.


o make life easier and to enable more in-depth

coverage, Contractors World International is

producing three Bauma preview supplements

and 2 Bauma reviews. Over 100 pages of reviews - prob-

ably much more than any other single

title will devote in editorial to the event.

Many companies do not want to re-

veal so early what they are showing so

items included in this supplement may

not, but will, probably, be displayed at the


This supplement also includes new products

that have been introduced in other parts of the

world in the last month or so and, as such, will

have their European launch at Bauma

2016, understandably.

One company that has given an

insight into what they will be show-

ing is

Chicago Pneumatics

. At

Bauma, the company will be intro-

ducing new lighting towers and a

range of hydraulic compaction plate

attachments for excavators. This typical of what to ex-

pect from thousands of exhibitors.

The major players, Caterpillar, Komatsu, Volvo, Case,

Liebherr, etc. always save their latest innovations for this

event. So there is a temptation to focus on these.

However, the true nuggets are to be found amongst

the hundreds of smaller companies. These tend to be

the true innovators before being swallowed up by the

larger companies.

Technology, that promises to deliver more produc-

tivity, greater precision, lower operating costs and better

fleet management, is sure to be at the forefront on a

great many stands

This is the first supplement of several that Contractors

World International will be publishing in the run up to

the event and after. Enjoy and share.
