More than thousand guests were invited to the inaugural event with Federal Transport Minister Dr. Volker Wissing and EU Commissioner Adina Vălean.

The entire fair grounds are occupied by 2,834 exhibitors from 56 countries.

250 international exhibitors showcasing world innovations

124 cars on rail distance of 3,500 metres

The bus display shows 14 buses.

Platform for supplemental mobility services called Mobility+

21 recipients of Career Awards were present.

New chances for virtual networking are provided via the InnoTrans Plus internet platform.

Two postponements of the trade show were necessary. 

This is the first time the sector has met in person in four years.

Adina Vălean, the EU's commissioner for transport, sees the shift to new modes of mobility as pan-European endeavour.


“In the years to come rail transport will be the focus of European transport policy, and InnoTrans, the leading international trade fair for transport technology, provides a valuable insight into how our plans will become reality. I am looking forward to witnessing some of the 250 innovations on display at this year’s InnoTrans, which will contribute to making rail transport and public transport more sustainable and resilient.“

EU Transport Commissioner
