bauma CTT Russia is the country’s leading international trade fair for construction equipment and technologies, and saw 22,726 visitors attend over the four days of the June show.
bauma CTT Russia celebrated its 20th anniversary this year, and has been part of the bauma group of international trade shows of Messe München. The exhibition occupied 55,000m2 at the Crocus International Exhibition Center in Moscow, thus making it the largest industry event for this sector in Russia. Visitor numbers were similar to last year’s event, but there were a noticeably higher number of decision makers among the trade visitors this year.
603 companies from 19 countries exhibited at the show, with 334 exhibitors, more than ever before, coming from outside Russia. Alongside Russia, the largest contingents came from China (189 exhibitors), Germany (44), Italy (35), and Turkey (34). Many leading international brands were represented including Doka, Wirtgen, XCMG, Sany, Putzmeister, Volvo, and MAN.
The bauma CTT Forum also provided an assessment of the development of the Russian construction machinery market. There is a reported need for suitable equipment and services for infrastructure development, including road construction, in Russia, with many projects set to be completed by the end of 2024. The forum also tackled such issues as the rental and leasing of construction machinery.
For the first time ‘Construction Equipment Innovations in Russia’ awards were presented as part of a competition for innovative solutions in construction machinery in Russia in seven different categories. The winners were: Schwing Stetter in the category ‘Concrete Pump Truck of the Year’ (winning innovation: Schwing S36X), Galichanin in the category ‘Mobile Crane of the Year’ (KC-55721-1B, Pioneer range), Giraffe and Manitowoc in the category ‘Tower Crane of the Year’ (TDK-40.1100 / Potain MCT385 L14), DST-URAL in the category ‘Bulldozer of the Year’ (TM10 GST12), Volvo and MAN in the category ‘Dump Truck of the Year’ (A 60 H / БЦМ-59), Volvo in the category ‘Wheel Loader of the Year’ (L260H), and Hyundai in the category ‘Excavator of the Year’ (R300LC-9S).
