InnoTrans is the world's largest trade fair focused on the rail transport industry.[2] It is held every two years at the Messe Berlin exhibition centre, which has outdoor standard gauge railway sidings which can be used to exhibit railway vehicles.[3] During the weekend after the trade show the public can visit the rolling stock on display.

History[edit]

InnoTrans has grown steadily in area and exhibitor numbers since it moved to Berlin in 1996.[2] For the 2010 fair, organiser Messe Berlin Ltd announced an increase to 2,000 exhibitors from 44 countries, which covered the whole area of the exhibition centre for the first time.[4]

A spin-off supplementary exhibition "Public Transport Interiors" aimed at the mass transit sector was planned, but the first event announced for 2011 was postponed until a later time. InnoTrans 2012 will instead be the first to include a separate "Public Transport and Interiors Hall Forum". Besides showing suppliers in the field there will be series of multimedia presentations on new design options in the industry.[5][6]
