247 exhibitors from 29 countries, 1,495 live lectures, 31 conference forums in three time zones and 4,316 1: 1 discussions: the first digital BAU ONLINE 2021 offered a comprehensive and free program for 38,325 participants from 138 countries over three days.
What could not take place live due to Corona was made possible by the organizers in a very short time on a digital platform: The international construction industry met in mid-January to make contacts, present new products and discuss trends and challenges in their industry. The focus was on topics such as digitalization, the circular economy, energy transition, sustainability and future living, but also the effects of COVID-19 on the construction industry.
Lohmann's Bonding Engineers were the only adhesive tape manufacturers to take part in BAU ONLINE 2021 and awaited their virtual visitors with exciting product and technology innovations. The live lectures in German and English on Lohmann's certified Static Direct Glazing (SDG®) method for the glazing process and the new product variants DuploCOLL® 56056 and 56057, which are revolutionizing it, were met with great interest. For the current increased demand for glass and acrylic glass partitions in the field of window construction, the adhesive experts presented their tried and tested "Clear Performance Tape" DuploCOLL® CPT, which can be used reliably and safely where distance and protection are important in the pandemic. The possibility for 1:1 discussions was also very well received by participants from all over the world. For the first time, the Bonding Engineers from Neuwied also presented their technology premiere TwinMelt®, a sustainable adhesive solution without solvents: for new, innovative types of bonding.
"We are very satisfied with the three virtual days of the exhibition. This exchange with our customers and partners from all over the world is particularly important during these times and we are already looking forward to Live BAU 2023. An exhibition of this size can never be completely replaced by an online event – however, we will also increasingly rely on digital tools in the future, whether internally or in contact with our customers ", says Renate Fofana, Head of the Lohmann Industrial Segment.
