International Trade Fair for Transport Technology – Innovative Components, Vehicles, Systems

With a large number of reference projects and over 220 transport technology firms, Berlin is the main focus of Germany’s transport engineering industry and an ideal venue for InnoTrans, an international platform for buyers and sellers of passenger and freight transport technology. InnoTrans has become established as the international industry showplace focusing on Railway Technology. Other key InnoTrans segments include Railway Infrastructure, Interiors, Public Transport and Tunnel Construction.

Just outside the exhibition halls, a wide range of railbound vehicles are presented on a comprehensive 3,500-meter track system. The outdoor display is a unique feature of InnoTrans: exhibits include multiple unit trains, locomotives, freight vehicles, trams, and construction and two-way vehicles. In addition to ten standard gauge tracks, the Special Gauge Display showcases rail vehicles with broad and narrow gauges.

The InnoTrans Convention takes place in conjunction with the trade show, and has become firmly established as an international meeting place for top decision-makers from the business, political and transportation communities. Featuring high-profile panel discussions and expert talks on current and future-focused mobility issues, the InnoTrans Convention is an ideal platform for face-to-face communication. This is where tomorrow’s transport concepts are explored on an international level.

A main event is the Dialog Forum organised by the German Transport Forum (DVF), the Association of German Transport Companies (VDV), the Association of the European Rail Industry (UNIFE) and the German Railway Industry Association (VDB).

Top-level dialog. The Rail Leaders’ Summit (RLS) offers transport ministers and chief executives from international transport companies opportunities to exchange ideas. The summit is organised by Deutsche Bahn AG and the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure in cooperation with Messe Berlin GmbH.

The International Tunnel Forum accompanies the InnoTrans Tunnel Construction segment and includes a series of informative, international panel discussions. It is organised by the Research Association for Underground Transportation Facilities (STUVA).

The Public Transport Forum focuses on the development of public transport systems, and is organised by the Planungsbüro für Verkehr (PBV), ETC Transport Consultants and the German Association of Transport Sciences (DVWG).

The Public Transport & Interiors (PTI-) Hall Forum combines two InnoTrans segments into a single program. While the International Design Forum focuses on the design-relevant aspects of public transport, the DB Suppliers’ Forum creates a direct dialog between Deutsche Bahn AG corporate purchasers, suppliers and industry experts.

Students and trainees can take the first step towards a career in rail transport and public transport at InnoTrans. As a focal point for young professionals, the Career & Education Hall with Career Pavilion and Career Forum brings together the professional world with young talent. The Career Point insignia identifies companies that offer job recruiting information at their exhibition stands.
