InnoTrans 2022
InnoTrans 2022 is vital for the UK rail industry as it looks to develop new trading relationships post-pandemic, following new free trade agreements as part of the Government’s ’Global Britain’ agenda. With an expected 3000+ exhibitors, 42 halls and over 155,000 trade visitors, InnoTrans is amongst the largest rail trade fairs in the world. Around 57 countries have a presence and there is an outdoor track display area, where everything from tank wagons to high-speed trains are displayed on 3,500 metres of track.
For the UK, we have two ‘GREAT branded’ pavilions with around 25+ companies exhibiting along with 80 UK businesses exhibiting independently along with many of our UK based multinational companies who are registered in the countries where their own HQs are based. There is expected to be a wide scope of products, technologies, and innovations on display from around the world, including the Best of British expertise in rail.
