The display area for the September gathering is 98 percent booked and international participation expected to match pre-pandemic levels.

InnoTrans is reporting high demand and keen international interest ahead of its September 20-23, 2022, event on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds.

The trade fair’s display area is 98 percent booked. Of those stands, 64 percent will be international exhibitors, which is equal to the last in-person InnoTrans event held in 2018.

“The continuing high demand shows that after a long break the mobility sector is keen to come together again for the industry’s global platform in September 2022“, says Kerstin Schulz, director of InnoTrans.

Attendees can explore 108,000 square meters (1.16 million square feet) of exhibition space with the theme ‘The future of mobility in times of climate change’. Exhibitors will display their innovations in all 42 halls on the exhibition grounds in the segments Railway Technology, Railway Infrastructure, Public Transport, Interiors and Tunnel Construction. The Mobility+ displays form a new part of the Public Transport segment, where InnoTrans is targeting providers of supplementary mobility services. Currently, 18 exhibitors have registered for this special segment, including ioki, Mobimeo, Optibus, Door2Door, Better Mobility and CleverShuttle.

Associations from Germany and abroad will represent the industries of their respective countries, including Swissrail (Switzerland), MAFEX (Spain), JORSA (Japan), ARIA (South Africa), CAMET (China), CRIDA (Taiwan), KORSIA (Korea) and ALAF (Argentina). Taking part for the first time will be the International Monorail Association, an association dedicated to promoting the monorail sector worldwide. Furthermore, a combined stand featuring Zeleros Hyperloop and Hardt Hyperloop will present the latest developments in ultra-fast overland hyperloop transport systems for passengers and freight.

Expanded virtual services

Visitors can prepare for the fair on the new virtual industry platform InnoTrans PLUS, where exhibitors can be found 365 days a year. This platform offers expanded services including chats, matchmaking, livestreamed and on-demand content, as well as webinars and an appointment tool. In addition, the InnoTrans Podcast previews themes with international guests, with a focus on the future of mobility. New podcast episodes are aired on the second Tuesday of each month.

Event opens with a high-level panel discussion

InnoTrans will open with a panel discussion featuring high-profile politicians and industry figures. Currently, the following industry figures are scheduled to attend: Dr. Richard Lutz, CEO of Deutsche Bahn AG; Peter Spuhler, CEO of Stadler Rail; Henri Poupart-Lafarge, president of Alstom Transport S.A.; Michael Peter, CEO of Siemens Mobility GmbH.
