A day with LIEBHERR at BAUMA 2016 Trade Fair
Because we love cranes, we honoured the invitation from LIEBHERR to participate, body and soul, at BAUMA 2016, which takes place în Munich, Germany. And well we did!
Those of you who have ever visited this outstanding exhibition know what we mean. If you haven’t decided yet, you still have two days, until April 17th! Or prepare for the next edition in 2019.
On Sunday the 10th, me and Dan, the guy who selects the best news for you, here on Cranesy, headed to the airport to fly directly to Munich from Bucharest, Romania. We waited with excitement landing and meeting with Tobias.
Everything was organized down to the smallest details and we thank those who have provided us, through their efforts, with the most beautiful experiences related to the world of cranes, so far.
When you arrive at BAUMA you will easily notice that LIEBHERR exhibition space is the greatest of all! This is one of the largest trade fair stands in the world, almost 14,000 m².
We’ve started our exploration, eager to do as many photos and find out as much information from specialists who were present to give us details.
