Gauff Consultants – A huge success – InnoTrans 2016
On the occasion of this year’s InnoTrans trade fair, Gauff Consultants, which was represented by the companies Gauff Rail Engineering, ETC – Gauff Mobility Solutions, Hamburg Consult and PB Consult, looks back on a very successful participation in this rail industry event. On every single exhibition day, numerous national and international clients approached our exhibition stand to get an insight into competences and innovative product solutions elaborated by Gauff Consultants.
Everything Rail – with this slogan, Gauff Rail Engineering represented the core idea of the trade fair, i.e. the rail system from one single source, including related planning and monitoring services. In addition, the eye-catching stand in Hall 4.1 was “the place to be” for job seekers and it was a fixed key contact point of the Career Tours, where students were given a good overview on professional and career opportunities offered by Gauff Consultants.
Being one of the first exhibitors on the InnoTrans, i.e. since 1998, ETC – Gauff Mobility Solutions represents – like no other consulting company – transition in the mobility market. Apart from the still existing expertise in the company based on strategic concepts, operational and traffic planning as well as tariff and revenue calculations, the focus of the company has now shifted towards IT solutions for transport companies and transport organization authorities. This structural change has been highly appreciated by exhibition visitors who specifically focused their attention on our presentations of web-based IT and data management solutions, such as DatNet, Q.Daba, MIPS and Q.Monitor.
Apart from the exhibition stand itself, the “ÖPNV-Forum” (a local public transport forum) is one additional constant parameter in the company’s trade fair presence. Supported by the Messe Berlin and in collaboration with the traffic planning office, this event has been carried out for the 10th time already. In line with the slogan “ÖPNV in 2030 – challenges and strategic options for action”, and moderated by Prof. Knut Ringat (Managing Director of the Rhein-Main-Verkehrsverbund GmbH), more than 160 participants coming from Germany and abroad assisted this meeting to discuss with our high-caliber speakers on future challenges and development opportunities for the local public transport in the mobility market.

On the jointly used exhibition stand of Gauff Consultants, the company PB Consult introduced itself to the broad specialized public. This exhibition effectively demonstrated the competences of PB Consult, not only as individual company, but also as part of the Gauff Consultants group. Thus, our exhibition stand was an interesting stop both for national transportation companies and international clients. Especially in terms of international business sector activities, the companies that are grouped under the roof of Gauff Consultants achieve significantly increasing success in East Africa, Eastern Europe and South Asia through their common activities. These activities, which are executed in rapidly growing cities in all mobility-related topics are the core sector on which PB Consult focuses: Design Urban Mobility.
Hamburg Consult – For almost 50 years now, consulting engineers of the most various disciplines work under the Hamburg Consult label, and render supporting services to many German clients of the public transport sector but also to numerous clients based in many other countries all over the world, particularly in the Asian region. Tilo Franz, Managing Director of Hamburg Consult, comments: “Whereas in the last few years we have only attended the InnoTrans trade fair as a visitor, this year our company has been actually represented on the Gauff Consultants stand. The remarkable feedback that we have obtained has encouraged us and proven that we are on the right path to better reach our clients. To shorten the time until the next InnoTrans 2018, we are now compiling interesting information from the world of traffic for our clients and partners on the APT-NewsChannel.”
We would like to seize this opportunity and thank all clients and business partners who have visited us on our stand and with whom we have had very interesting talks. We are looking forward to seeing you again, at the latest, on the InnoTrans 2018!
