Railtex - more than an exhibition
Railtex is the all-encompassing showcase for technological innovations across the entire rail supply market.
It provides an unequalled opportunity in the UK for companies serving all aspects of the infrastructure and rolling stock sectors to present their capabilities, meet their customers and be part of the industry’s networking event of the year.
First staged in 1993, Railtex has long been established as Britain’s leading showcase for railway equipment, products and services, with a strong reputation for attracting visiting managers, engineers and buyers at the highest level.
With the exhibition as its centrepiece, Railtex additionally features a stimulating supporting programme encompassing keynote speeches, seminars and discussion forums all devised to highlight industry trends and – importantly – bring people together.
Britain’s rail network is seeing levels of investment unprecedented in recent years. The HS2 high-speed line, Crossrail and extensive upgrading of the existing system are all generating business opportunities throughout the supply chain.
Electrification of main lines, modernisation of signalling systems and procurement of new rolling stock to handle ever increasing passenger numbers all feature in current investment programmes.
Transport for London also represents a key market, with new trains being acquired, extension of the Northern Line of the Underground and a growing role in the management of the city’s suburban lines.
And the proposed HS3 line linking cities in northern England and Crossrail 2 in the capital have now both moved up the political agenda, promising exciting longer term prospects for the supply industry.
Be sure to highlight the role your company can play in building the country’s 21st century railway by planning now to participate in Railtex 2017. Information for exhibitors and visitors, including free pre-registration: www.railtex.co.uk
