InnoTrans announces high bookings ahead of 2022 show

InnoTrans is reporting strong demand and strong international interest ahead of its September 20-23, 2022 event at the Berlin Messe.

The exhibition area of ​​the show is 98% booked. Of these booths, 64% will be international exhibitors, which is equivalent to the last in-person InnoTrans event held in 2018.

Attendees can explore 108,000 square meters (1.16 million square feet) of exhibition space themed “The Future of Mobility in the Age of Climate Change”. Exhibitors will present their innovations in the 42 halls of the exhibition center in the segments Rail technology, Rail infrastructure, Public transport, Interiors and Tunnel construction.
