Deutsche Bahn Trade Mission - 14th-18th March 2016

12 Feb 2016

UKTI Yorkshire and the Humber will be leading a multi-centre Trade Mission in Germany to establish links between UK Rail Sector Companies and Deutsche Bahn, its subsidiaries, and its supply chain.

Germany is the largest single overseas market for UK rail supply companies and Deutsche Bahn (DB), the state operated major provider, is:

• No. 1 in rail freight transport in Europe - 5100 trains daily
• No. 1 in rail infrastructure in Europe - 34,000km
• No. 1 in the operation of stations in Europe - 5700 in total; 100 modernised annually
• Transports 4 million people daily
• Spends Euro 1 billion annually on maintenance
• 370 different railway companies use their network
• Germany's biggest cycle rental company

By 2017 Deutsche Bahn will invest Euro 32 billion - two thirds in infrastructure and one third in traction and rolling stock . There will be an annual purchasing volume in excess of Euro 30 billion.
To maximise the impact of this, allow forward planning and exposure in Germany, which will be coordinated by UKTI Germany, and to ensure productive meetings with a high chance of generating new business we encourage you to enlist on the mission as early as possible.

Why attend?

• Take advantage of the huge potential for UK rail supply businesses within the Northern Powerhouse to establish a position within the German
Railway Sector.
• Meet with companies already well embedded within the German supply chain, supplying to DB and others, with the aim of pairing NPH businesses with counterparts in Germany where new technologies and efficiencies can be demonstrated on a one-one basis.
• Meet the DB decision makers and experts from the global rail network.
• Get ahead and learn how to improve your product and corporate strategy.
• Visit Berlin to meet Deutsche Bahn and travel on to two other rail hub
cities to meet with businesses embedded in Deutsche Bahn's supply chain

What are the benefits?

• A Market Visit Support (MVS) grant of £250 is available to eligible companies in the Northern Powerhouse regions.
• Receive in-market support from UKTI Germany and UKTI Yorkshire and the Humber's rail sector specialist for the duration of your visit.
