Unfortunately we have to inform you that the planned conference on 6 and 7 March 2020 is cancelled and will probably be postponed to the year 2022 due to the outbreak of the corona virus. We do not want to expose the health of our international guests to unnecessary danger and have therefore decided to take this step. By the end of 2021 a new date will be defined and published on this page.

We ask for your understanding and would be very pleased to welcome you at the new date at the conference. Guests who are already registered have the possibility to keep their registration and participate at the new date. Of course you can also cancel your registration via CMD Congress Management GmbH Dresden (contact details see below). Any advance payments already made will be reversed.

Keynote Speakers


The presentation of the world’s first train in carbon-intensive lightweight design (“CETROVO”) by CRRC at Innotrans 2018 in Berlin demonstrated the enormous potential of innovative lightweight design solutions for the rail traffic of the future. The development and technological implementation of this train was led by CG Rail GmbH and its innovation partners from
Dresden on behalf of CRRC.

In order to further establish lightweight construction in the rail vehicle industry – and as a platform for the international exchange of knowledge in research and industry – CG Rail GmbH in cooperation with the world’s largest rail vehicle manufacturer CRRC will host a conference on the topic of “Lightweight Design – a key factor for the rail vehicles of the future” in Dresden.

All presentations will be translated directly and subject-related into English, Chinese and German by experienced simultaneous translators.
