BAUMA 15 – 21.04.2013
The world’s largest fairs for construction and mining BAUMA 2013 in Munich has just finished. The capital of Bavaria attracted as usual the worlds giants from the construction and mining industry. It was the third time DFM ZANAM – LEGMET participated in BAUMA. This year the company’s development was clearly reflected in the quality of our exhibition. We had 2 booths. The first one, inside mining hall C2 was designed to have business meetings, which covered meetings with our customers, both present and potential ones and suppliers. We have had a lot of conversations, which may have only positive results for our company. The outside booth was located just at the entrance to the hall C2 and perfectly corresponded to our inside booth. Out LHD 1601B and a haul truck CB4 – 20TB were the best choice to take to the fairs. Our machines set up in a very attractive way attracted crowds of visitors, some of whom could not believe that such giants could work underground. A lot of questions were asked concerning essential components of our machines as well as condition they might operate. BAUMA helped to establish new contacts, meet our business partners and talk about future ways of cooperation.
3420 exhibitors from 57 countries
530,000 visitors from 200 countries
