Networking at Innotrans
Shaun Forrester, on behalf of Anderton Concrete, attended InnoTrans in Berlin, the first time Anderton has ever been to the event.
InnoTrans is the rail exhibition for the world. The 4-day event is held in Berlin every two years and with the exhibition occupying 44 halls, it attracts over 200,000 visitors.
Attending as a non-exhibiting supplier to the Rail industry provides a great opportunity to network. And due to the scale of the exhibition, it is vital to plan your routes before you travel.
Shaun was fortunate enough to spend time with Graham Jackson, Managing Director of Unipart Rail and Rail Alliance, to name but a few and was invited to the Railway Industry Association drinks reception which included an audience with Chris Grayling, the UK Minister for Transport.
Shaun commented: “The opportunities to network, to keep up to speed with the latest developments in the industry and to obtain new product ideas makes the event a ‘must visit’ and we will certainly be looking to visit again in 2020. Who knows we may even exhibit ourselves.”
