InnoTrans Career Concept


InnoTrans offers trade visitors and young professionals in the rail transport technology industry an ideal platform for cultivating existing contacts and establishing new ties. It is also the event for newcomers to this sector. Young professionals seeking work in this field can make use of the InnoTrans career concept to hold initial talks with human resource experts from exhibitors at the trade fair. Around 3,500 students from Germany and abroad, including from China, the US, Canada and Sweden, visited InnoTrans 2016.

Make use of this opportunity to recruit new employees for your company. The following services provide the best possible conditions for these talks:

Benefits for exhibitors

  • direct contact with young professionals
  • all-round carefree package with special conditions
  • marketing advantages by additional advertisements for the Career Concept

Taking as its slogan ‘Creating a successful future together’, the Career & Education Hall focuses on young professionals by combining the Career Pavilion and Career Forum and hosting individual exhibitors under one roof.

The Career & Education Hall offers exhibitors two options for presenting their company:

  • An individual stand in the Career Hall where you can organise your display area according to your individual wishes and ideas. To do so simply fill out our standard registration form, stating that you wish to exhibit in the Career & Education Hall.
  • An extra display area in the Career Pavilion in addition to your regular stand see under ’Career Pavilion’.

In addition to your regular stand a display area in the Career Pavilion enables your human resource experts to focus on attracting young professionals. The pavilion is the main focus of the Career Hall and provides an ideal presentation, information and communication platform which addresses young people, training and careers.

We can organise a comprehensive package including a fully equipped stand covering 12 m², a lecture slot at the Career Forum as well as many other options. The price is EUR 4,050.00. You can find the registration forms and all the relevant details here (PDF, 82.8 kB).

Our fully equipped Career Forum enables all exhibitors participating in the career concept to present their company to young professionals.

Career Point

The Career Point is a logo on your stand that indicates you will be providing information on careers and job opportunities for the duration of the fair. With its circular logo a Career Point is easily recognisable and acts as a signpost for interested young professionals everywhere on the exhibition grounds. It enables jobseekers to easily identify potential employers and make direct contact with them on their stand.

You can order the Career Point logo costing EUR 180.00 for your trade fair stand here (PDF, 90.5 kB).
The registration deadline is 15 May 2018.

Career Tours

Guided tours for students and young professionals will be available several times a day. These tours will stop in on exhibitors whose stands bear the Career Point logo. As an exhibitor you can provide information on job and career prospects directly on your stand, meet young professionals, and if desired arrange personal interviews with potential applicants. At InnoTrans 2016 we offered ten different tours throughout the fair in which 150 students and young professionals took part.
