An official press statement:
‘Due to the constantly changing situation regarding the coronavirus pandemic and the resultant lack of planning certainty, InnoTrans is to be postponed until 2022. After consulting with international market players and leading associations this was decided upon by Messe Berlin. The thirteenth edition of the world’s leading trade fair for transport technology will take place from 20 to 23 September 2022 in Berlin.’
This means the next InnoTrans will take place on its next regular dates and there will a gap of four years between the 12th and 13th edition. Postponing again to Septermber 2021 was not possible as ‘MES Expo’ was already scheduled for that period.
In May 2020, the Berlin Senate decided to ban large eventst to contain the spread of SARS-CoV-2. Therefore it was initially decidded to postpone the 2020-edition of InnoTrans to to April 2021.
What rests now are some nice pictures from 2018. Ofcourse, Railcolor will be supporting the industry during these difficult times by presenting their products during alternative events and via digital channels, until it is save again to organize a new InnoTrans.
