Dear Ms Mustermann,
 
“There’re no words for it, simply …”awesome!”, was the answer of a managing director when asked in the middle of the bauma week how the first days in Munich went. With this opinion he was not alone. Many happy faces could be seen at the trade fair in Munich. “It feels almost like a normal bauma …”, said another exhibitor. Even a month after the big event, the euphoria continues. With BFT International, an exciting year is coming to an end - many words have been spoken, heard, telephoned, emailed and written, and the Engineering Days in Salzburg this week once again provided a wonderful platform for networking. Many thanks to all BFT readers, advertisers, external authors, translators and of course the entire BFT team for a great year - thank you!
I hope you enjoy reading this newsletter.
Yours
Jens Maurus
