For our customer Hamburger HOCHBAHN, the Kontrapunkt trade fair team rebuilt a mock-up of the DT5 series subway railcar for the IT Trans trade fair in Karlsruhe. Since its introduction in summer 2012, this “whisper train” has delighted the Hamburg population with its particularly low-noise running.

As an additional eye-catcher, a “flying” 32m long and 360 degree LED projection attracted attention with content on the topic of public transport of the future in Hamburg.

Visitors to the fair could interactively inform themselves about the elevated railway projects of the future via a touch screen inside the DT5 wagon.

Fast as the elevated railway – from scribble to exhibition booth in 4 weeks

A special challenge was the short preparation time for the trade fair appearance, which was planned as part of Hamburg’s bid for the UITP Global Summit 2021. Only four weeks remained for the Kontrapunkt project team from the idea to exhibit construction to the first day of the fair.
