The organisers of InnoTrans have announced that the 2020 edition of the international transport trade fair is to be rescheduled to 27-30 April 2021.
Messe Berlin, the organisers of the biennial InnoTrans transport and technology trade fair, have announced that the 2020 edition, due to take place between 22 and 25 September in Berlin, Germany, has been postponed because of COVID-19 event restrictions in Berlin.
Across their social media channels and highlighted on their website, InnoTrans announced: “We have taken note of the decree of the Berlin Senate dated 21 April 2020 regarding the ban on events with more than 5,000 persons until 24 October 2020. We are already finalising an alternative event date and will announce it at the beginning of May at the latest.”
InnoTrans has grown to become the leading international trade fair for transport technology and takes places every two years in Berlin. Sub-divided into the five trade fair segments Railway Technology, Railway Infrastructure, Public Transport, Interiors and Tunnel Construction, InnoTrans takes place in all 42 halls available at the Berlin Exhibition Grounds.
The 2018 attracted over 153,000 trade visitors from 149 countries and 3,062 exhibitors from 61 countries.
