InnoTrans 2018
The Future of Mobility

The leading international trade fair for transport technology takes place in Berlin in September. Divided into the five trade fair segments Railway Technology, Railway Infrastructure, Public Transport, Interiors and Tunnel Construction, InnoTrans 2018 will occupy all 41 halls of the Berlin exhibition grounds. From 18 to 21 September 2018, InnoTrans in Berlin will be the place-to-be for the rail industry. Meet the railway industry in Germany – meet our member companies and visit us.

The InnoTrans Convention and the InnoTrans Career & Education Program complement the specialist trade fair. At the Dialogue Forum "Rail 4.0 – Innovations of the railway industry for more climate protection and more customer quality" organised by the VDB on 19 September from 10:00 to 12:00 a.m., experts from the railway industry will discuss the mobility of the future and the innovations in rail transport of tomorrow. On 21 September 2018, selected experts will deal with the future paths of mobility in the digital age at the VDB Future Workshop.

InnoTrans has a unique selling point – the track and open-air exhibition grounds with 3,500 running meters of rails on which everything from tank wagons to high-speed trains is represented.

The VDB is an official partner of InnoTrans. The VDB team is looking forward to your visit at the stand of the railway industry in Germany in Hall 2.2 /Booth 202!


That is the VDB.
