bauma CTT Russia 2018 post show report
For the first time under the new name bauma CTT RUSSIA, the 19th International Trade Fair for Construction Equipment and Technologies was held successfully on June 5 –8 at the Crocus Expo IEC in Moscow, Russia, and surpassed the previous year’s results in terms of visitor and exhibitor numbers.
A total of 586 exhibitors—an increase of four percent compared to last year—from 26 countries showcased their new products and innovations for the Russian and CIS market on 60,000 square meters of exhibition space. The top ten exhibiting countries were (in this order): Russia, China, Germany, Italy, Turkey, Finland, Spain, Korea, Belarus and Belgium.
This year’s bauma CTT RUSSIA again featured four country pavilions from China, Finland, Germany and Italy. The exhibition attracted 22,681 participants (plus ten percent compared to 2017) not only from Russia, but also from Belarus, Kazakhstan and other CIS countries.
For this year’s edition, the largest industry event in Russia came up with a number of innovations which proved to be productive from the start. Shortening the duration of the trade fair from five to four days led to a greater concentration of visitors from the trade, which was much appreciated by the exhibitors. Also for the first time, a demonstration area was set up in the open-air section where exhibitors such as AST (dealer for John Deere), Manitou, and RusBusinessauto (dealer for SDLG)—to name but a few—presented their products in action.
At the open-air area, WorldSkills, an international non-profit movement which aims to enhance the reputation of the professions, demonstrated the competence of young professionals in the disciplines “Concrete Construction Work” and “Maintenance of Heavy Equipment” to a wide audience, while the companies Doka and Volvo provided materials and equipment.
bauma CTT RUSSIA 2018 again received official support from various national authorities and professional unions. These included the State Duma Committee for Economic Policies, Industry, Innovative Development and Entrepreneurship; the Ministry of Construction, Housing and Utilities; the Russian Union of Builders; Moscow’s Department of Urban Development Policy; the Committee for Entrepreneurship in Construction, and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation. New this year were the sponsors Sperbank, Russia’s leading bank, and the insurance company VSK.
The next edition will take place at IEC Crocus Expo, Moscow on June 4 –7, 2019.
