INNOTRANS: Organiser Messe Berlin has rescheduled the InnoTrans 2020 trade fair, the biggest event in the rail industry calendar.
InnoTrans 2020 was to have been held on September 22-25. However, as part of measures to tackle the coronavirus pandemic, the Berlin senate issued a decree on April 21 banning events with more than 5 000 people from being held in the city before October 24 2020.
InnoTrans 2018 had attracted 3 062 exhibitors from 61 countries, and 153 421 trade visitors from 149 countries.
‘We are already finalising an alternative event date and will announce it in early May’, a Messe Berlin spokesperson told Railway Gazette International on April 22, adding that the new date would be in ‘springtime 2021’.
