Railtex 2017

Event date


Railtex is a 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.
