A member of Network Rail’s board since 2003, Simon Kirby is currently leading a series of reforms of Network Rail’s infrastructure business. On the opening day, 1 May, Minister of State for Transport, Theresa Villiers, will address visitors to the event, while on 2 May Howard Smith, Chief Operating Officer London Rail at TfL will be speaking.
The presentations highlight an extensive seminar programme running over all three days of the show and organised by Infrarail media partner, the rail engineer magazine. Taking place at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham from 1 to 3 May, Infrarail is Britain’s biggest showcase for railway infrastructure products and services.
Says Tom O’Connor, managing director of the Rail Media Group, which publishes the rail engineer and RailStaff and runs the RailStaff Awards, ‘We look forward to welcoming many of our readers and advertisers to the show. Infrarail 2012 marks a further vote of confidence in Britain’s emerging rail industry and is a good opportunity for meeting old friends and new.’
