InnoTrans is a trade fair specialising in all things Smart Transport. It will run from 18 to 21 September 2018, and will extend across the entire Berlin exhibition grounds, occupying an area of 200 000 m² gross. In order to ensure that exhibitors and trade visitors are able to keep their bearings, InnoTrans is sub-divided into five segments:
- Railway Technology
- Railway Infrastructure
- Public Transport
- Tunnel Construction
During the fair this year, 22 transport companies are taking part, 14 of which are from abroad, including China, Dubai, Kazakhstan, Japan, South Korea and Ukraine. “At this year’s InnoTrans in Berlin, companies will be represented with mobility projects that are not only intelligent, futuristic and innovative, but will play a key role at the World Expo 2020 and beyond,” said H.E. Mattar Al Tayer, Director General and Chairman of the RTA board of Executive Directors.
He goes on to explain that “These include 3D printing technology, the Enterprise Command & Control Center (EC3), Route 2020, expansion of the Red Line metro system in Dubai, the Hyperloop, the Dubai Metro Green Development and the international conference on driverless vehicles, which will be combined with a competition.”
The InnoTrans Convention includes Dialogue Forums; exhibitor presentations at Speakers’ Corner and CEO Guided Tours which take place on the last day of the show. The supporting programme concludes with the conferences held within the scope of the Conference Corner after the exhibition has ended.
The expected highlights of the fair include the presentation of the ‘Ideenzug’, a new innovative train that aims to offer the public a new experience. This includes designs for sports, premium-class compartments as well as for work, public viewing and relaxation areas.
