IT-TRANS 2022 – more exhibitors, more innovations, more international participants

Visitors from all over the world joined the trade fair to discover intelligent mobility solutions and concepts

With the climate crisis and rising energy costs, public transport plays a decisive role in intelligent and sustainable mobility. How relevant the key topics at IT-TRANS 2022 were, was also reflected in higher visitor and exhibitor numbers:

- 6,500 attendees from 71 countries

- 276 exhibitors from 33 countries

- 180 speakers at the IT-TRANS conference

- 800 delegates attending, with 130 people joining remotely

IT-TRANS 2022 - finally meeting face-to-face again

Since the 2020 edition could not take place in person due to the pandemic, it was above all the desire for networking and face-to-face encounters that moved both exhibitors and participants:

Nico Hess, Operational Sales Director Europe, Luminator Technology Group:

“We are all very happy with how IT-TRANS went. We had a huge number of industry visitors at our stand. I think you could tell at the event that everyone was delighted to finally speak face to face, shake hands and talk to customers in person again.”

Peter Möhl, Vice President Central & Eastern Europe, PTV Group:

“We are so happy to see IT-TRANS take place as an in-person event again. Maintaining personal contacts is so important. We value being able to both present our company and listen to our partners and customers. The organisation was also excellent.”

Annette Weisser, Head of Corporate Communications, IVU Traffic Technologies AG:

“Both we as an exhibitor and our customers are happy that the first in-person IT-TRANS since the pandemic was a success. We will definitely be back next time and the time after that!”

Alexander Szlezak, CEO, Unwired Networks:

This year’s IT-TRANS really surprised me. The visitors were of a very high quality, especially on the first day. I think that everyone was ready to meet in person again after the pandemic. We also had the perfect spot for our stand in hall 1.”

Jürgen Kindler, CIO and CTO, Transdev Vertrieb GmbH:

„I have been a guest at IT-TRANS for many years, because this is where I find all the key players in the industry. After the Corona crisis, it was important for me to finally meet the people in person again.”

Anna Herzberg, Strategic Software Procurement, Deutsche Bahn AG:

“At IT-TRANS we met many of our suppliers and were also able to make new contacts. The range of products for our segment is good, especially since everything is centralised in one place and yet easy to find - we definitely felt we were in good hands here.”

Visitor feedback proofed that IT-TRANS once again was the must-attend event for intelligent and sustainable solutions in public transport: 95 per cent of the attendees had a very positive view of the exhibitors’ presentations. The number of rebookings also reflects a high contentment level: By the third day of the show, around half of the stand spaces have already been reserved by exhibitors.

See you at the next IT-TRANS from 14 to 16 May 2024 at Messe Karlsruhe!
