The bauma China has once again established itself as a firm fixture in the trade show calendar for Bauer Maschinen GmbH. By its very nature, the show is a major event for Chinese visitors and manufacturers. The official closing report by the trade show management lists 3,104 exhibitors, of which 2,097 alone were from China. However, the trade show is increasingly becoming an event with international reach. Bauer Maschinen GmbH also noticed this trend at its stand: in spite of the difficult market situation overall, the Bauer team welcomed numerous visitors from Russia, Malaysia, Singapore, the Middle East, Australia, Sri Lanka and Pakistan. There were even some visitors from South America.
