Significant gains in this group were produced by China, Australia and Japan. More than 5,500 visitors came from China alone. The number of exhibitors totaled about 3,700 from 63 countries – likewise a record. With its unprecedented 614,000 sq. meters of space, the larg- est bauma ever held was once again a bauma filled with records. During the 2019 edition, exhibitors unveiled a huge number of innovations and new products to the trade fair's global visitors. Zeppelin/Caterpillar, for instance, introduced more than 20 world premieres. Business conducted at the exhibition was correspondingly good. Many exhibitors spoke of a high willingness to invest. U.S. companies such as McLanahan Corp., Superior Industries, and KPI- JCI and Astec Mobile Screens took the opportunity to introduce new products, sign up new distributors and engage a global audience. The record-setting bauma also had a strong impact on order books as exhib- itors generated the highest sales in the history of their participation at the trade fair. Thanks to the smooth operation of the exhibition and the consistently positive feedback by exhibitors, Klaus Dittrich, chairman and CEO of Messe München, was more than satisfied with the results of bauma 2019: "For the indus- try, bauma is by far the world's most important innovation platform and eco- nomic engine, something that we clearly saw this year," he said. "Particularly in these times of sweeping technological change that is being triggered by digi- talization, bauma provides the industry with security and confidence. Thanks to the momentum in demand generated by the fair's seven days, companies will be able to calmly face economic slow- downs. bauma 2019 highlighted the opportunity and tremendous outlook of the industry as a whole." Franz-Josef Paus, managing director of Hermann Paus Maschinenfabrik and chairman of the bauma Advisory Coun- cil, described the trade fair's unique character this way: "With exhibitors from more than 60 countries and visi- tors from more than 200 nations, bauma is an industry platform where technolog- ical variety, ingenuity and performance can be demonstrated to an immense international business audience."
