Tradesmen meet—For years, BAU, the World’s Leading Trade Fair for Architecture, Materials and Systems has been uniting its specific offers for tradesmen under this banner. In 2017, once again tradesmen in all trades and sectors of the industry will find what their heart desires.
Table talks bring together architects and tradesmen
BAU 2017, once again, invites architects and tradesmen to join the table talks, located at the stand of the Association for German Building Professionals (ZDB) in the East Entrance. Konradin media group and ZDB have prepared an exciting and informative entertainment programme, and talks with top experts:
National team trains for WorldSkills
BAU visitors can already look forward to watch the training camp of the German Building Professionals national team. The best young talents of different trades demonstrate their skills in various disciplines and train for the upcoming “World Skills” vocational competition in Abu Dhabi. The national team includes the best German brick layers, tilers, plasterers, and carpenters. Team members have qualified through the German championships, and contests. A preliminary World Cup squad will train at BAU 2017.
Team members are practising the skills of their trade, required in the international vocational competition. Brick layers, for instance, will build walls using various bricks to create different patterns. Tilers will combine tiles on walls and floors creating sophisticated geometrical designs. Plasterers will install drywall constructions, i.a. including stucco elements. Carpenters will build a timber construction with roof truss.
Already for the third time the national team trains at BAU. In the years 2013 and 2015, Munich was the place to lay the foundation for world championship titles. Master tiler Björn Bohmfalk and master plasterer Andreas Schenk collected a gold medal in the 2013 WorldSkills competition in Leipzig. In 2015, carpenter Simon Rehm became world champion in Sao Paulo.
The training camp for tradesmen has been organised by ZDB, Association for German Building Professionals.
Tradesmen Meet is a central gathering for tradesmen in hall B0, where experts provide tips and tricks for everyday professional use. Each day we offer talks and discussions on various topics. In detail:
