bauma China records highest ever visitor numbers.
Despite the slowdown in equipment sales in the Chinese market, bauma China was attended by a record number of visitors, with 180,000 people visiting the Shanghai show.

Shantui meanwhile launched the SD90-5, a 105-tonne bulldozer with blade capacity of 45m 3 .
The footfall of approximately 180,000 visitors surpassed 2010's total of 155,615, an increase of 16%.
Zhichao Chen, marketing director at SANY Heavy Industry, praised the atmosphere of the show.
"bauma China brings us a tremendous amount of purchase orders. This trade show always has the same objective with its exhibitors: to expand and grow together."
After China, the top ten visitor countries and regions at the show were Russia, Korea, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Turkey - in that order.
