The countdown to Railtex 2013 is well underway, with just weeks to go before the show opens its doors at London’s Earls Court exhibition centre on 30 April.
Visitor registration is now open via www.railtex.co.uk, providing free entry to all who sign up in advance to attend. Registering by this method also avoids a £20 entry fee payable on the day and speeds up access to the show.
Railtex promises to be a busy exhibition presenting the very latest in railway technology across all sectors of the market. The number of companies taking part continues to grow, with up to 400 exhibitors likely to be present when the event opens.
RailStaff readers can easily keep track of which firms will have stands via the regularly updated exhibitor list on the show website.
Visitors to the event will also have free access to a comprehensive programme of briefings and discussions on technological developments and policy trends in the industry.
Providing highlights will be a seminar programme running throughout the show, hosted by RailStaff’s sister magazine and Railtex media partner, the rail engineer. With keynote speeches by industry leaders already announced, the full programme will soon be available on the event website.
Also likely to prove popular will be a series of presentations in the Project Update Theatre showcasing the latest developments in major rail schemes.
The programme already includes seminars by senior Network Rail managers on the Birmingham Gateway Project, the Edinburgh-Glasgow Improvement Programme and plans to electrify large sections of the system.
There will also be an update on delivering a high-speed rail network for the UK by a senior figure from HS2 Ltd, including an outline of the associated procurement strategy and the business opportunities for British companies who wish to get involved with the project.
