After a four-year hiatus, the entire world of transport technology and mobility has once again gathered at the world’s leading trade fair, InnoTrans in Berlin. This year marks the 13th edition of the show, and organizers say the 2022 show generated as much demand as its predecessors.

The export potential of Ukraine was presented at the collective stand. During the exhibition, Ukrainian companies managed to hold about 300 B2B meetings with potential foreign partners. More than 2,200 guests from 25 countries of the world came to visit the Ukrainian stand, but Europeans enjoyed the greatest interest in Ukrainian products.

Martin Ecknig, CEO of Messe Berlin, said: “InnoTrans has once again impressively demonstrated that it is the industry summit that shows today what will be on the rail and road tomorrow. Here exhibitors present technologies for sustainable mobility first. InnoTrans is also a platform for international exchange for a trans-European transport network.”

Kerstin Schulz, director of InnoTrans, said: “After the pandemic-induced break, InnoTrans 2022 has made a phenomenal return. At last the industry family has come together again. After a long wait we were able to exchange ideas in person and look each other in the eye.”

The organizers of InnoTrans drew attention to the fact that the share of visitors who came for the first time this year was especially high – 56%, and a total of 57.3% of visitors came from abroad.
