The countdown to InnoTrans 2014 has begun and already the forthcoming event is casting a long shadow. Already, more than 90 percent of the display area occupied at the last event has been booked and, at around 50 percent, participation by international exhibitors is high. For example, the US Railway Engineering-Maintenance Suppliers Association (REMSA) is organizing a combined stand for the second time and will occupy double the display space at the last event. The Japan Overseas Rolling Stock Association (JORSA) will also be represented on a combined stand. Once again, Japan will be taking up an entire hall.
Kazakhstan will be taking part in the forthcoming industry event in Berlin for the first time, where it will be represented by the Tengiz Trans Group. According to information supplied by the exhibitor the enterprise is Kazakhstan’s largest independent leasing company for rolling stock.
DCD, a rolling stock manufacturer from South Africa, is among the newcomers at InnoTrans 2014. When InnoTrans, the leading international trade fair for rail transport technology, opens its doors on 23 September 2014, attention will focus on the global rail industry’s product innovations over the four days of the event.
First Announcement of a World Premiere
Last year the rail industry showcased a total of 104 products that made their first appearance on the world stage. BGM GmbH Badische Gleisbaumaschinen, a startup from Germany, is the first exhibitor to announce products that will be shown at InnoTrans 2014 for the first time in the world. “At InnoTrans in Berlin we will be exhibiting prototypes of our newly developed and patented MT 100 goods wagon to an expert audience,“ said Andreas Vonhoff, managing director of BGM GmbH.
The registration deadline for InnoTrans 2014 is 31 December 2013.
