BUS2BUS 2022, 2,000 trade visitors at the fair
“Over the two days of the event, BUS2BUS reflected the industry’s high degree of innovative potential and provided an ideal platform for discussing new drive systems, infrastructures and new vehicle concepts. The atmosphere was overwhelming and once again emphasised how much the industry has missed face-to-face encounters – because bus business is people business “, said Kerstin Kube-Erkens, Senior Product Manager of BUS2BUS.
Around 100 exhibitors from 16 countries presented their products, services and technical solutions at the meeting place of Europe’s bus industry and its suppliers. The industry’s key players were represented with more vehicles on larger stands. Figures representing politics, business and science visited the event, underlining how important buses are for new forms of mobility. The combination of a Trade Show and an informative program of stage events, comprising the Future Forum, bdo Congress, as well as BUS2Specials, was very well received by trade visitors and exhibitors alike, which was reflected in the initial positive reactions obtained in a survey.

Nine out of ten exhibitors considered BUS2BUS an ideal platform for presenting new products and innovations and almost as many said it was an innovation platform for the German market”.
