Third time in a row: BAU wins Architects’ Darling® Award


BAU won the coveted Architects’ Darling® Award for the third time in a row. The award is the result of Germany’s largest nationwide architects’ survey last year. Approximately 1,800 architects and planners were surveyed about more than 200 manufacturers and brands. In the category “Favorite Trade Show,” BAU was clearly in first place again—after 2012 and 2013.

DInitiated by Heinze GmbH, the awards were presented within the scope of the “Celle Werktage” in the ducal town of Celle in Lower Saxony on November 3, 2015. Markus Sporer, Deputy Exhibition Director of BAU, and PR Manager Johannes Manger accepted the massive Bronze Phoenix statue at an evening gala in front of 400 invited guests. The Architects’ Darling®, which is considered the “Oscar of the German construction industry,” is awarded every year. The award for “Favorite Trade Show” was presented for the third time. As in 2012 and 2013, BAU prevailed over strong competition from throughout Germany again last year.

The Bronze Phoenix was presented in a total of 31 categories that included productrelated areas as well as various marketing disciplines. BAU was also delighted for several of its exhibitors: Of the 30 winners that received the Architects’ Darling® Award in gold along with BAU, 19 of them were BAU exhibitors. Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, Deputy CEO of Messe München, feels that receiving this award yet again is proof of the high regard that the architectural community has for BAU. “It is no coin cidence that BAU is frequently referred to as the architects’ trade fair. BAU depicts the future of building and architecture in a manner that covers all skilled trades. Planners and architects acknow ledge that. They appreciate our forums and special shows, but they are particularly impressed by the presentations of our exhibitors.”
