Facts & figures

Excellent ratings from exhibitors and visitors: Does Messe München meet the mark with the BAU concept and service? Messe München asks itself this question after every trade fair. For this reason, the opinion research institute TNS conducted a visitor and exhibitor survey at BAU 2019 on behalf of Messe München. The result is more than positive. Both exhibitors and visitors were enthusiastic.
