With this year's Innotrans, the largest Innotrans of all time started on September 20th.

“Innotrans 2016 is the largest Innotrans to date. This means that the limits of the existing exhibition center have been finally reached,”says Dr. Christian Göke, CEO of Messe Berlin GmbH. “Just over a year ago, the fair booked a waiting list with an overhang of 6000 net square meters. We were able to answer all exhibitor inquiries because we optimized the use of the premises and the hall.”
One of the hallmarks remains the high level of internationality on both the exhibitor and trade visitor side. Companies from a total of 60 countries present their products to the world public. 36 of the most important industry and trade associations worldwide are also represented as exhibitors. Two thirds come from abroad, including Europe, Asia and the USA.
The proportion of exhibitors not from Europe rose again and is 22% for this year's fair. Asia and Australia show the largest increases here, which stand out with an increase in exhibitors of 77% compared to 2014. The majority of the exhibitors are companies from the main European markets. Germany, Italy and France are in first place here.
The joint stand of Japan once again occupies an entire exhibition hall. Joint stands from Belgium, Tunisia and Portugal as well as from the state of Hesse will make their debut at the fair. Business delegations from 20 countries travel to Berlin for the fair.
World premieres and open-air exhibition
140 world premieres give the development power of the global rail industry an impressive face at the trade fair. The range of premieres ranges from new technology to equipment elements to new vehicle generations.
This year, 123 exhibits will be the focus of the 3,500 track and yard areas. The regional train shown by Alstom is characterized by fuel cell drive. Visitors can also experience the new EC250 "Giruno" train from Stadler Rail up close, as well as the "Velaro Turkey" high-speed train and the "Metro Riad" subway from Siemens. The Vossloh Locomotives DE 18 locomotive will also make its world debut at the 2016 trade fair. Deutsche Bahn is also present with an extensive stand appearance on the open and track area.
