In just six months’ time, the next Infrarail exhibition will be in full swing. More than 80 companies have already selected their stands at the show, which takes place at a new venue – ExCeL London in the capital’s Docklands – from 12 to 14 April 2016.
Organisers Mack Brooks Exhibitions believe that locating the event in the Southeast will help firms to target the many business opportunities generated by extensive rail infrastructure developments in the region, while providing a good balance with its NEC- based Railtex show.
Among companies that have already confirmed their participation are ABB, Dura Composites, FP McCann/ Keyline Rail, Prysmian Group and Tata Steel, while first-time exhibitors will include leading German track construction firm Max Bögl with a large stand. Also taking part will be Direct Track Solutions, Sulzer, Trojan Services and Variable Message signs, underlining the diverse range of products to be featured.
Reflecting on progress so far, exhibition manager Kirsten Whitehouse says, ‘We have had a great response to Infrarail, with many companies returning after their successful participation in previous shows.
‘We are also now developing our supporting programme of industry seminars, project updates and discussion forums. We know these are always popular and we are aiming again to make these as informative and varied as possible.’
Taking place alongside Infrarail will be CITE, the Civil Infrastructure & Technology Exhibition. The successful pairing of these two events first took place in 2014. A significant number of companies exhibiting next year will be active across the entire infrastructure sector and with both events sharing the same hall at ExCeL, visitors will be free to move between the two.
