InnoTrans Berlin 2018 largest and most important up to now
The largest and most important InnoTrans fair up to now ended in Berlin, on September 21st. Those who visited the fair for just a day or two were disappointed. Not even the full four days of visit to this fair from the morning until late afternoon hours were enough for an average visitor to see everything. Nothing strange, considering that this year exhibitors and visitors had 41 fair halls that were used by 3,062 exhibitors from 60 countries, 62% of which were foreign companies, confirming the international character of this incredible manifestation.
In addition, at the open space the wagons and locomotives of well-known producers from all around the world were exhibited on the total of 3,500 meters of rails, also owned by the Berlin fair.
Experts from our sector and numerous visitors (160,000 of them) came to InnoTrans 2018 from 120 countries. A total of 41 ministers from the field of transport and infrastructure came in person to the fair in order to see 400 innovations, 155 world premieres of the products and 155 rolling stocks on the open space.
If you think that more than this is impossible, you are wrong: the Berlin fair is constructing two new large halls for the next InnoTrans 2020, expecting even more exhibitors and even larger number of visitors. Of course, it is encouraging that more and more of the exhibitors are coming from our region, and that trend is bound to continue in the future.
