InnoTrans postponed!

InnoTrans, the largest global railway industry exhibition, held every two years in Berlin, Germany, has been postponed.

Scheduled for 22-25 September 2020, the organisers have issued a release that simply says: “We have taken note of the decree of the Berlin Senate dated 21 April 2020 regarding the ban on events with more than 5,000 persons until 24 October 2020.

“We are already finalizing an alternative event date and will announce it at the beginning of May at the latest.”

While no new date is yet known, rumours are that it could be sometime in April 2021.
