Global rail industry looks forward to InnoTrans 2022
With an absence in the diaries of the rail industry since 2018, appetite for the thirteenth edition of the world’s leading trade fair for transport technology is thriving, with show organisers revealing that 95 per cent of the trade show’s exhibition area is already occupied.
InnoTrans 2022 will run from 20 to 23 September and will occupy the entire exhibition grounds at Germany’s Messe Berlin, including the new trade fair hall hub27.
Ninety-five per cent of the exhibition area is currently occupied, while the Outdoor Display with 3,500m of rail track is fully booked.
“In view of the difficult overall conditions and latest developments, we did not expect bookings to be this high,” Kerstin Schulz, InnoTrans Director, said. “Everyone taking part is looking forward all the more to meeting in person. InnoTrans is the world’s largest platform for the mobility sector, with a market coverage that is second to none.”
Over 100 exhibits on the Outdoor Display
This year on the Outdoor Display, exhibitors are showcasing over 100 vehicles, including some world innovations. Siemens Mobility and Deutsche Bahn (DB) are set to present the H2goesRail project and the Mireo Plus H, a new generation of fuel-cell-powered trains. Stadler will be taking part with seven vehicles this year, and Tatravagónka, a goods wagon manufacturer from Slovakia, is planning to make a big appearance at the show with six vehicles supplementing its hall stand. Trade visitors can also look forward to additional presentations from Alstom, Siemens, Vossloh, Plasser & Theurer as well as numerous other exhibitors.
