Why Your Visit Is Worth It

InnoTrans is where business happens. Plain and simple. Its scale ensures that you get to meet with anyone within the industry with ease, because this trade fair is the very definition of massive. Just take a look at the attendance records from last edition:

  • 3000+ international exhibitors from 61 countries took the stage;
  • 161,000+ international visitors from 149 countries made the journey;
  • 179,000 square metres of exhibition space used.

Industry Relevance

Going back to 1996, InnoTrans is perhaps one of the fastest growing professional fairs in the world. In the twenty years its run, it has certainly managed to win the crown of the biggest fair for railway technology. Editions are spaced between two-year periods and the exhibition centre boasts an outdoor area with railway sidings to showcase finished trains. The exhibition space is split into several themed areas that encompass the entire value chain – Railway Technology, Interiors (with Travel Catering & Comfort Services), Railway Infrastructure, Public Transport as well as Tunnel Construction. Alongside the product showcases, visitors have an opportunity to learn what’s new in the industry at the InnoTrans Convention, which runs alongside the trade fair.

Who Are You Going to Meet?

InnoTrans is a lengthy fair that’s usually organized in the middle of the week and runs through the entire weekend. Although it’s focused on trade visitors, it’s precisely during the weekend when this event welcomes the general public. The ratio professionals to enthusiasts is in favor of trade visitors with only 12,000 visitors being weekend tourist visits drawn to the Outdoor Display. The professional visitors in attendance largely come from senior management – 56.4% reported to be in a senior position. As far as nationalities go, although there is a strong collective presence from European countries (mostly members of the EU), one of biggest exhibitor countries was China. It is reported that the German and Chinese railway industries have plans to work tightly together in the near future.
