InnoTrans now 27 to 30 April 2021

InnoTrans, the world’s largest rail industry exhibition, will now take place in Berlin from 27 to 30 April 2021.

The show was postponed when the Senate of Berlin imposed a ban on staging large events, in particular trade fairs with an attendance of more than 5,000, until 24 October 2020. As a result, it would not be possible to stage InnoTrans as originally planned, from 22 to 25 September 2020.

New dates have now been released and the show WILL go ahead, but at the end of April next year.

Kerstin Schulz, director of InnoTrans, said: “The health and safety of exhibitors, trade visitors and all the employees at the trade fair have the utmost priority. For this reason InnoTrans will take place from 27 to 30 April 2021. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our exhibitors at InnoTrans for their cooperation and loyalty.”
