For the first time, ever, 80,000 of the more than 250,000 visitors who attended BAU 2017 were from abroad. As a result, BAU, the World’s Leading Trade Fair for Architecture, Materials and Systems, managed once again to make significant gains at the international level (2015: 72,000 visitors). With more than 65,000 visitors from architecture and planning offices, BAU managed yet again to solidify its reputation as a trade fair for architects. With a total of 2,120 exhibitors from 45 countries, it also set a new record for the number of exhibitors. It has done an impressive job of demonstrating its position as a driving force behind innovation and a source of momentum to the construction industry.
This year as well, was special for NBK at the exhibition, as we had a much larger booth that was located in the center of the exhibition hall. We were thrilled by the vast amount of people that took the time to visit our booth. We would like to thank you for the new contacts made, and for the stimulating and inspiring conversations.
