Without doubt, functional, safe and attractively designed rail vehicle interiors are highly appreciated by transport companies and passengers alike.
This is reflected at InnoTrans, where record numbers of domestic and international suppliers will be represented in the Interiors segment this year. Occupying three display halls, for the first time 280 companies will be showcasing innovative products whose key features are comfort, safety and design. It means that, compared to the last InnoTrans, exhibitor numbers in the Interiors segment have grown by 10 percent.
Every type of product from the rail vehicle interiors industry will be featured: seating, cladding materials, textiles, door systems and state-of the-art air-conditioning and safety systems. The topic of Travel Catering & Comfort Services will be featured with a themed route in Hall 1.1. Many companies will be presenting products making their first appearance on the world stage. Lantal Textiles, for example, will be showcasing its new product designs for rail vehicle and bus interiors. The exhibitors Euro-Shelter and Sabic will be showcasing their new materials and panels for covering interior surfaces for the first time in Berlin.
