There is no question that on the way to a sustainable change in transport, rail travel and local public transport must be expanded, trains must be designed more attractively and services must be improved. With the “International Design Forum” symposium at InnoTrans, the world’s leading trade fair for transport technology and mobility taking place in Berlin from 20 to 23 September, the “International Design Zentrum Berlin” (IDZ), on behalf of Messe Berlin, aims to highlight design-relevant topics in the fields of transport and mobility on 21 September. The forum is part of the “InnoTrans Convention” for the “Public Transport and Interiors” (PTI) sector.

Representatives of renowned companies, research institutions and design studios such as Deutsche Bahn, Netherlands Railways, CRRC Group, RATP, Siemens, Bombardier Transportation, Lantal, Designaffairs, Frog, Priestmangoode, N+P Industrial Design, büro+staubach, Seymourpowell, Spirit Design, Tangerine BMW Group Designworks, Edenspiekermann and many more are invited to the symposium. Under the title “From the Passenger Experience to the Connected Vehicle – Co-Innovation for Successful Mobility Solutions”, experiences from cross-industry cooperations will be reported and a look into the future will be taken. Current challenges will be discussed, innovative vehicle solutions presented as well as high-speed trains of tomorrow. For example, the modular and flexible Tren Maya series designed by the Alstom design team and new types of high-speed railcars in China will be presented, as well as flexible interiors that meet the different needs of passengers during peak and off-peak hours and in this way should help to win back passengers for the railway.
