This year’s exhibition will set a new record with 2950 exhibitors from 60 countries, with 200 of these companies exhibiting for the first time. International participation has reached a record high at 62% with exhibitors from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Egypt, Hong Kong, Thailand and Vietnam attending InnoTrans for the first time.

“This year’s InnoTrans is the largest ever and with it, the physical limits of the exhibition grounds have finally been reached,” Göke says. “Just over a year ago the trade fair had a waiting list for 6000m2 of floor space. By optimising all available areas on the outdoor display and in the halls we were able to satisfy every exhibitor’s request.”

There are 123 vehicles on display on the 3.5km of track on the show ground. These include Stadler’s new EC250 Giruno train for Swiss Federal Railways (SBB), the Siemens Velaro high-speed train for Turkish State Railways (TCDD), a Siemens train for the new Riyadh Metro, and a DE 18 locomotive from Vossloh Locomotives. In addition, 140 products will on show at InnoTrans for the first time.

  • IRJ will be showcasing its full range of services for the rail industry on Stand 101 in Hall 6.2 where delegates will be able to see a demonstration of our new IRJ Pro digital platform comprising Projects Monitor, Fleet Monitor and Global Rail Tenders.
