In March of 2019, APS Managing Director Terence Breen and his partner Helen Long travelled to Germany to attend one of the world’s largest and probably the most important international trade fair for the construction industry, Bauma 2019.
The trade fair presents a comprehensive international product range on construction and is a hub for international business providing us the opportunity to establish contacts, gather information off construction experts and be informed about state-of-the-art-technology.
We were hosted by Wirtgen on a 5-day road tour starting in Frankfurt to visit their Wirtgen GmbH factory and then onto Heidelberg to visit Voegele factory then onto Stuttgart and ending in Munich to attend the Bauma 2019 Trade Fair.
The most valuable part of the trip was the opportunity for our regional business in City of Greater Geelong to network and travel with other small, medium and large construction businesses and share our challengers and opportunities. We formed new relationships and strengthened existing ones.
By attending Bauma2019 our local business now has a global overview of all innovations, technologies and trends in the construction benefitting our processes and broadening our knowledge.
