The entire world of transport technology and mobility met at the world’s leading trade fair InnoTrans in Berlin from 20 September to 23 September 2022. After four years, the trade fair was held again for the 13th time at the Berlin Exhibition Grounds and registered a similarly high demand as its predecessors. Numerous visitors, a high level of internationality and many business deals characterise InnoTrans, as do the broad market coverage and high innovation density. With 250 world premieres, the exhibitors presented more innovations than ever before. Trade visitors could expect to see 128 vehicles and exhibits on the track and outdoor areas.
Around 140,000 visitors from over 131 countries came to the world’s leading trade fair. 2,834 exhibitors from 56 countries were present. At the Berlin Exhibition Grounds they displayed the entire product and service diversity of the mobility industry.
“InnoTrans has once again impressively demonstrated that it is the industry summit that shows today what will be on the rail and road tomorrow. Here exhibitors present technologies for sustainable mobility first. InnoTrans is also a platform for international exchange for a trans-European transport network,” emphasises Martin Ecknig, CEO of Messe Berlin.
“After the pandemic-induced break, InnoTrans 2022 has made a phenomenal return. At last the industry family has come together again. After a long wait we were able to exchange ideas in person and look each other in the eye,” says Kerstin Schulz, Director of InnoTrans.
At this year’s InnoTrans the proportion of first-time visitors is particularly high at 56 percent. A total of 57.3 percent of visitors come from abroad. The high rate confirms InnoTrans’ status as the world’s leading trade fair. Trade visitors are primarily interested in rail transport technology, rail transport infrastructure and the 3.5-kilometre track and outdoor exhibition area. This is followed by the new Mobility+ exhibition area, a platform for services and products relating to mobility complementary to public transport.
