Railtex is the all encompassing showcase for technological innovation across all sectors of the rail supply market. Against a backdrop of continuing investment in rail and significant ongoing projects, Railtex provides a timely opportunity for companies serving the rail market to highlight their capabilities and showcase their products and services.
With 468 of the rail industry’s leading suppliers taking part, Railtex 2015 was the biggest and busiest of these events for more than a decade. A total of 7,449 trade visitors attended the show. A further 2,700 people were present as exhibitors, bringing together some 10,150 rail industry professionals over three days at the NEC.
Many exhibitors reported that the show exceeded their expectations, with significant numbers of successful business transactions and connections made.
Railtex 2015 was not only about business transactions, though: an extensive and wide-ranging programme of speeches and presentations by leading industry figures was a major highlight, with many sessions standing room only and plenty of constructive exchanges between speakers and audience.
We are pleased that Railtex 2015 once again delivered the platform for professionals to meet, network, learn, discuss, do business and discover the latest trends, technologies and innovations within the rail sector, and look forward to welcoming you at our upcoming Infrarail and CITE exhibitions in London as well as, of course, Railtex 2017.
“There is no better place to gauge the confidence and optimism of an industry than a trade show like this. And with more than 400 exhibitors here this week, from large train manufacturers to small scale engineering and technology companies, I think Railtex 2013 is evidence of a thriving rail industry in this country”
Simon Burns MP, Minister of State for Transport, speaking at Railtex 2013 on 30th April.
