Refit Night Express receives German Innovation Award

Our approach of rethinking travel by night train is once again attracting expert interest. After winning the German Design Award in Gold, our “Refit Night Express” concept has recently also been honored with the German Innovation Award. After the award is before the trade fair: From 24 to 27.9.24, InnoTrans in Berlin offers the opportunity to talk to our experts.

Lisa Rost and Fränze Habedank hold the German Innovation Award Gold in their hands and smile.
Our Experience Domain Lead Lisa Rost accepted the award in Berlin last week on behalf of the UXMA team together with Fränze Habedank from our partners at Kompetenznetz Rail Berlin-Brandenburg GmbH.

Resource saving and user experience combined

The Refit Night Express combines the advantages of a sustainable night train concept for business travelers as an alternative to resource-hungry air travel. The focus is on optimizing the space available in old, disused carriages to create a futuristic travel concept. The two innovative cabin types, each with 7 square meters, offer comfort and privacy that were not included in previous night train concepts. As part of the overarching concept, the user experience is also enhanced by simple booking processes, check-in, cabin control and personalized timetables that can be operated via smartphone or cabin monitor.

The prize that makes innovation visible

The German Innovation Award recognizes products, technologies and services that break new, innovative ground and offer solutions that stand out due to their added value for users and the environment. These future-oriented innovations are possible in all industries and at all levels - from industry giants to start-ups. The German Innovation Award offers everyone who drives innovation forward the same opportunities and makes their achievements visible to a wide audience. The jury is made up of independent, interdisciplinary experts from the fields of technology, digitalization, science and institutions.
