BAU 2015, the World´s Leading Trade Fair for Architecture, Materials and Systems, has broken through the 250,000-visitor barrier for the first time in its 50-year history. The six days of this fair—in which all the exhibition space has long been fully booked—attracted 251,200 visitors: that´s over 16,000 more than in 2013. Around 72,000 people came from abroad—that´s 20 percent more than last time. In its role as an "architects´ trade event", BAU once again consolidated its reputation. Around 65,000 of the total number of visitors were from architectural and planning offices, which is another increase on the figures for 2013.
Glassolutions was present with its two sheets of PRIVA-LITE glass, one panel was made of three glass samples: PRIVA-LITE Classic, PRIVA-LITE Deco and PRIVA-LITE Color. The second sheet was PRIVA-LITE Interactive, an intelligent glass which interacts with those who pass by managed by Kinect Technology.
BAU is an event nobody wants to miss. Everyone is keen to come to BAU. That was the unmistakable impression gained by all who made their way through the 17 exhibition halls at the show. The exhibitors were delighted: right from day one, the halls were all full. BAU gave a powerful demonstration of what it is well known for and of why it has earned its reputation: packed halls, spectacular booth designs, professional talks at the exhibitors´ booths and above all—trade visitors from all over the world. It was quite a challenge for the 2015 exhibitors from 42 countries. They were well prepared and again spared no effort in showcasing their products and services to the trade audience on all six days of the fair. All around the halls, the stand personnel were being briefed early in the mornings, ready to face the expected flood of customers.
