On the last day of bauma 2019 our CEO Harald Ziebula took a look back on an exciting week at the trade fair in Munich.

bauma and Doka: A retrospection

Since 1962 Doka has had its own booth at every bauma expo. A lot has changed at bauma but it has now become the world’s leading trade fair for construction, building materials, tunneling and mining machinery, construction vehicles and construction equipment. Doka’s expo booth has changed many times over the past years.

Join us on a tour of Doka’s history at bauma.

In this video, Alfred Umdasch takes us on a journey through Doka´s trade show appearances. Discover the story of how our stand transformed from a ´small hut´ in the early 60s to a booth with over 100 000 visitors nowadays.

    bauma 1963


    Doka exhibits for the very first time at the bauma expo. The bauma venue at this time is part of the former Oberwiesenfeld airport, which later became the site of Munich’s Olympic Park.

    bauma 1967


    The bauma expo relocates, and Doka’s stand moves with it. The new venue is Munich’s Theresienwiese, better known these days as the “Wiesn”.

    bauma 1969


    Doka decides to make bauma the focus of all its trade-fair activities in the German-speaking part of Europe. Doka’s stand at bauma is in one of the halls on the expo grounds.

    bauma 1980


    The exhibits get bigger and bigger – space inside the hall is limited. Doka erects a pavilion of its own in the outdoor area of the expo grounds.

    bauma 1989


    The formwork show captivates everyone who visits the Doka expo stand. Always a part of Doka’s bauma showing, it is a tradition with a new twist every time.
