Railtex 2013 will take place from 30 April to 2 May next year at the Earls Court exhibition venue, in the heart of London. This will be the 11th in a highly successful series of trade shows covering railway equipment, systems and services which have firmly established Railtex as the UK’s leading rail industry event.
Covering the entire railway market – both fixed infrastructure assets and rolling stock, plus all related products and services - Railtex 2013 will serve as a showcase for the very latest technology at a time of massive investment in Britain’s main line and urban rail networks.
Familiar Railtex features will again be present, including an On Track Display presenting rail-related equipment and machinery and the Recruitment Wall, alerting show visitors to exhibitors’ skills needs. And taking place during the exhibition will be an extensive programme of drop-in technical seminars, keynote presentations and industry updates, together with plenty of networking opportunities.
In addition, 2013 will see the introduction for the first time of the Railtex Awards, recognising successes and achievements by exhibitors during an evening drinks reception and dinner that will also serve as a social occasion for participants in the event.
More than 400 exhibitors took part in the last Railtex in 2011, attracting some 9,200 industry professionals from 49 countries. Surveys revealed that 65 per cent of visitors had immediate purchasing power, underlining the show’s success in bringing together suppliers and potential buyers.
