U.S. Associations Present the ‘American Way’ at InnoTrans 2016

inno_logo Four of the most important industrial associations in the United States are coming to Berlin Sept. 20-23, in order to present a concentrated display of their country’s economic strengths in the rail transport sector as part of InnoTrans, a leading international trade show for transport technology.

The venue will be the U.S. pavilion, where the Railway Engineering-Maintenance Suppliers Association (REMSA) will be organizing a combined stand in hall 22 on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds. The other exhibitors will be the Railway Supply Institute (RSI), the Railway Systems Suppliers, Inc. (RSSI) and the American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association (AREMA).

Companies and organizations from the United States are showing an increasing appreciation of InnoTrans as venue for international trade. Since the United States made its debut in 1998, exhibitor numbers have increased ten-fold and its display area is now 30 times greater.

For its exhibitors the display of products ranks high on the ’InnoTrans agenda,’ along with the opportunities that it provides for cultivating contacts with the leading decision-makers in Europe, Asia and South America. Within the industry this trade show has a vital role for management and technical representatives, who can discuss and conduct business here.

It is also obvious why the U.S. exhibitors at the upcoming InnoTrans will again include numerous global market leaders, among them the suppliers Progress Rail Services Corporation and Wabtec Corporation, as well as Amsted Rail, a manufacturer of complete components for railroad cars. GE Transportation will also be represented. As one of the largest suppliers to railway companies and to the transport and mining industries, the company develops freight and passenger locomotives, mining vehicles, electrical power units for drilling heads, and marine diesels.

REMSA Executive Director David Tennant said: “The exclusive USA Pavilion allows U.S.-based railway supply companies and organizations a unique opportunity to highlight their goods and services at InnoTrans, a major international event that attracted more than 130,000 attendees from over 100 countries in 2014.”

InnoTrans is the world’s leading trade fair for transport technology and takes place every two years in Berlin. At the last event 2,761 exhibitors from 55 countries presented their rail industry innovations to 133,595 trade visitors who came from 146 countries. The five segments at InnoTrans include Railway Technology, Railway Infrastructure, Public Transport, Interiors and Tunnel Construction. InnoTrans is organised by Messe Berlin GmbH. The eleventh InnoTrans will take place on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds from September 20-23, 2016.
