IRJ at InnoTrans 2016: Messe Berlin, the organiser of the InnoTrans railway exhibition which took place in Berlin from September 20-23, says the event attracted 144,470 trade visitors - an increase of 4% compared with 2014 - from more than 140 countries.

There were 2955 exhibitors from 60 countries which was 7% more than in 2014. Exhibitors occupied a total of 112,000m2 which Messe Berlin says filled all the space available. In addition 127 rail vehicles were on show at the outside track area, although the mix of vehicles on display differed from 2014 in that there were fewer passenger trains and more freight vehicles on show this year.

Messe Berlin says exhibitors showed 149 products for the first time.
