End of the road: Messe Berlin has terminated Bautec. The international trade fair for building and construction technology last held in February 2020 is no longer economically viable. "In recent years, Bautec's profitability no longer reached the necessary levels. Despite the strong commitment of our long-standing partners and sponsors and the outstanding efforts of our colleagues at Messe Berlin in raising the standards of the fair, we were unfortunately unable to achieve the economic results we had hoped for and required", said Karel Heijs, director of the Life Sciences division.

Since Bautec is unlikely to achieve "substantially better results" next year, he calls the decision "understandable in these economically challenging times". At Bautec 2020 (the exhibition was held in two-year cycles), 451 exhibitors from 18 countries showcased their products and services in the field of building and construction technology. It drew more than 31,000 trade visitors. The Bautec offering was rounded off by Grünbau Berlin and up#Berlin.
