Review Railtex 2017
With 475 leading suppliers taking part, Railtex 2017 was again the meeting point for the rail industry. A total of 7,052 trade visitors attended the show. A further 2,703 people were present as exhibitors, bringing together almost 10,000 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.
Ralf Warwel of Stadler Rail said: "We are very happy to exhibit our products at Railtex, this is the first time that we have the chance to introduce our rolling stock to the market in the UK.” Summarising his satisfaction with the exhibition, Luca Giantin of Italian seating manufacturer FISA commented: "The UK is our most important market right now and for this, Railtex is definitely the place to be!"
Railtex 2017 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 2017 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.
