For the 2006 Show international pavillions are being organised and some countries have already confirmed their spaces: France, South Africa and Spain are examples.
The biggest booth belonged to the Associação Nacional de Transportadores Ferroviários - ANTF (National Association of Railway Companies) where the freight railway operators showed their demand to the manufacturers.
