The Official Railtex Review
Welcome to the Show Review from this year’s highly successful Railtex 2019, looking at just some of the many highlights from the rail industry’s definitive exhibition of railway technology and services.
The event has yet again exceeded itself as the largest showcase for the rail industry in the UK, and proved a fabulous opportunity to meet peers, exchange details with industry experts and do business. The overwhelming feedback from those showcasing their products and services was positive, with many stating they made valuable contacts and business leads throughout the three days.
Beyond the main exhibition, there was a comprehensive supporting programme, including insights from leading industry figures and a comprehensive seminar programme across the three days. Our new Future Focus Conference also featured a range of interactive forums, topics and discussions. A series of keynote addresses were provided at the Seminar Theatre, and the Knowledge Hub hosted a selection of project updates and industry briefings. With a new five-year funding cycle for rail infrastructure, and an independent review of the rail system’s structure, as well as major projects such as Crossrail, HS2 and Northern Powerhouse Rail, there were many lively and insightful discussions taking place.
