Tomorrow, the long-awaited 14th TRAKO International Fair will begin in Gdansk. This event will certainly be the biggest meeting of the railway industry in 2021, announced by the European Commission as the European Year of Railways.

More than 500 exhibitors from 20 countries have signed up for this year's fair, which is held at the Amberexpo Exhibition and Convention Centre. In addition to Polish companies, companies from the railway segment from Germany, the Czech Republic, Great Britain, Austria and Switzerland will be the most represented at the fair. Amberexpo will not miss the stands of organisations bringing together railway companies, railway media, and representatives of the government
The 14th TRAKO fair will be unusual mainly due to the complicated preparation of trade fairs. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it was not certain for a long time whether the fair would take place at all. Despite the closure of the fair and the exhibition segment, the organizers tried to keep to the schedule of preparations to avoid potential complications due to the limited deadline. Thanks to the excellent work of the organizers, the fair will take place according to the set plan.
This year's Gdansk fair is also the first direct meeting of such a large number of railway company representatives in a long time, so we can expect a lot of news from railway manufacturers and some vehicles will even have their premiere in Gdansk
