Bau China Shanghai

16. - 19. October 2024 | International exhibition on windows, doors, skylights, curtain wall technology, components and prefabricated units

The Bau China, formerly known as Fenestration Bau China, has become the leading trade fair in Asia for windows, doors, glass, building components and prefabricated construction since its establishment in 2003. The abbreviation BAU represents the themes "building, extension, and renovation," thus emphasizing the comprehensive claim of this trade fair. The organization of the fair is the responsibility of Messe München Shanghai Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Messe München, known for its committed and professional execution of international fairs. The Bau China takes place annually, alternating between Beijing in even years and Shanghai in odd years.

The main topics of the fair cover a wide range of construction sectors, including window systems, door systems, architectural sun protection, curtain facades, architectural glass and photovoltaics, profiles, fittings, sealants, thermal insulation series, and machinery. The fair not only presents current product lines but also acts as a showcase for innovative ideas and high-quality, energy-efficient products. The highlights of the fair are diverse, ranging from the presentation of new technologies and materials to inspiring discussions and lectures by leading industry experts. Furthermore, in the context of competitions and award ceremonies, innovations and outstanding performances in the various areas of the construction industry are recognized. Exhibitors come from various industries, including manufacturers of windows, doors, and other building components, architects, designers, and construction companies. The main visitors to the fair are professionals and manufacturers from these industries, as well as architects and real estate agents who want to learn about the latest trends and technologies. With its annual rotation between Beijing and Shanghai, Bau China not only provides a platform for professional exchange but also promotes the local construction industry and strengthens the bond with the respective host city.

On the whole the organisers welcomed on the 4 days of the fair, from 29. October to 01. November 2020, about 636 exhibitors and 48000 visitors on the Bau China in Beijing.
