On the online platform “bauma CHINA Community”, everyone could virtually participate in bauma CHINA 2020, from the comfort of their home or office.
The participants could search for exhibitors, exchange company information, get to know products, participate in events digitally and thus gain new market insights. Exhibitors and visitors had the opportunity to communicate via live chats or video conferencing. Thus, participants were able to generate greater reach and build their social networks in the construction equipment industry.

Rainer Hirsch, Member of the Executive Board of Herrenknecht AG was impressed by this newly launched service: “bauma CHINA provided the online platform to build a communication and interaction bridge that breaks the limit of time and space between exhibitors and participants, who are not able to visit the on-site event. The combination of offline and online greatly facilitates communication and helps to achieve cooperation deals.”
