Four of the most important industrial associations in the U.S. — Railway Engineering-Maintenance Suppliers Association (REMSA), Railway Supply Institute (RSI), Railway Systems Suppliers Inc. (RSSI) and the American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association (AREMA) — are coming to Innotrans, held in Berlin Sept. 20 - 23, in order to present a concentrated display of their country’s economic strengths in the rail transport sector.
The venue will be the USA pavilion, REMSA will be organizing a combined stand in hall 22 on the Berlin Exhibition Grounds, with the other exhibiting U.S.associations.
“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,” REMSA Executive Director David Tennant.
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, according to organizers.
U.S. exhibitors at the upcoming InnoTrans will again include numerous global market leaders, among them the suppliers Progress Rail Services Corp. and Wabtec Corp., as well as Amsted Rail and GE Transportation.
A press conference will be held for the first time during the 2016 event, at which journalists can obtain details about current trends and developments in the U.S. rail industry. On Sept. 22, representatives of the associations will be meeting domestic and international media representatives for a question and answer session, which will be held at the InnoTrans press center.
