With a large number of reference projects and over 220 transport technology firms, Berlin is the main focus of Germany's transport engineering industry and an ideal venue for InnoTrans, an international platform for buyers and sellers of passenger and freight transport technology. InnoTrans has become established as an international industry showplace focusing on Railway Technology. A full range of rail vehicles are presented in static displays on the Messe Berlin tracks located outside the exhibition halls. Other key InnoTrans features include Railway Infrastructure, Interiors, Public Transport and Tunnel Construction.
The InnoTrans Convention taking place in conjunction with the trade show includes a special Dialog Forum organized by Deutsches Verkehrsforum (German Transport Forum), Verband Deutscher Verkehrsunternehmen (VDV, Association of German Transport Companies), the European Rail Transport Industry Association (UNIFE) and Verband der Bahnindustrie in Deutschland (VDB, German Rail Industry Association).
Initiated and organized by Deutsche Bahn AG, the Rail Leaders’ Summit (RLS) offers excellent dialogue opportunities for transport ministries and general managers of international rail transport companies.
The Tunnel Construction segment will be accompanied by International Tunnel Forum featuring a series of discussions with international guest speakers and supported by STUVA (Incorporated Association for Underground Transport Systems) . The Public Transport Forum organized by Planungsbüro für Verkehr (PBV) and ETC Consultants focuses on current and future developments in public transport systems.
With the Public Transport & Interiors Hall Forum (PTI Hall Forum) two segments received their own program area where the Speakers' Corner, the International Design Forum and the DB Suppliers' Forum takes place. At the DB Suppliers' Forum the Deutsche Bahn goes into direct conversation with their suppliers.
The InnoTrans Majlis (signifies a customary gathering in the Middle East where important topics are discussed and personal meetings taken place) offers the opportunity to exchange views for numerous senior industry executives and policy makers with high-ranking members of the rail industry and rail transport ministries of the Gulf Arab states.
The event will take place the 23-26 September 2014, in Berlin, Germany.
