By Michael PopkeEverything about InnoTrans 2014 was bigger. The massive, every-other-year international event for transport technology filled 27 exhibit halls at Germany’s Berlin ExpoCenter City from Sept. 23 to 26, with a 10 percent increase in both exhibitors and attendees. All told, a record 2,758 exhibitors from 55 countries and 138,872 visitors from more than 100 countries attended. Additionally, 145 new rail vehicles were featured in an outdoor display area and on 2.5 miles of track, while 140 products made their international debut inside. Although the percentages of North American exhibitors and attendees remain in the single digits, InnoTrans officials were pleased with the increased participation from companies that hail from the continent.“Manufacturers of rail technology from the USA have been represented at InnoTrans since 1998, when four companies came to Berlin,” says Kerstin Schulz, exhibition director of InnoTrans. “With each trade show, the number of U.S. exhibitors has continued to grow, but this year they increased dramatically.”
