Dear Ms Rodermond,
 
The year 2019 is off to a flying start, with a triple-event package: 1) At BAU trade show the manufacturers of precast concrete elements will present their offerings at the joint stand of the Concrete Information Center (IZB, Booth No. 320, Hall A 2). The team BFT International will also be available to you at BAU, at the booth of Bauverlag (Booth No. 410, Hall C 2).
 
2) The BetonTage will then take place from 19 to 21 February 2019 in Neu-Ulm, Germany. Your specialized precast concrete publication BFT International invites you, as usual, to the BFT Café in the entrance area of the Edwin-Scharff House.
 
3) And finally, on 8 April, Bauma, the world’s largest trade show for construction machinery, building-material machines, mining machines, construction vehicles and construction equipment will open its gates in Munich. BFT International will greet you there as well, at Stand 350 in Hall B 1.
 
Regards
 
Your BFT team
