The first Fenestration BAU China will take place in Shanghai November 7-10, 2017. It will include BAU Congress China. Messe München Shanghai, a subsidiary of Messe München, acquired Fenestration China, which event organizers say will be the core of Fenestration BAU.

“We are proud of the fact that BAU in Munich has developed into the world’s largest trade fair for architecture and building materials,” says Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, managing director at Messe München. “Acquiring a majority share of the most important exhibition for windows and facades in China gives us a chance to establish a trade show with a format that is similar to that of BAU in Munich in the largest construction market in the world. The show will focus on sustainability and quality during planning and construction. And it will be modeled after BAU in Munich. Together with founder Cathy Peng and her team, the show will be expanded by adding segments for roof elements, building automation and insulation materials.”

Fenestration China was founded in 2003. In November 2016, it occupied 100,000 square meters of space and had more than 500 exhibitors. The exhibition takes place annually, alternating between Peking and Shanghai.
