Railtex/Infrarail Will Be A Safe Event

The Organisers are keeping up to date with the latest government guidelines and closely working with the venue to deliver a secure environment and ensure a safe return to events.

Ian Taylor, Managing Director of NEC Group Conventions & Exhibitions, said:

“We’re looking forward to hosting Railtex/Infrarail at the NEC on 7-9 September. This promises to be a fantastic exhibition and a great opportunity for the rail industry to reconnect. In the meantime, we continue to work hard behind the scenes, preparing to resume full operations and ensuring visitors can return safely to the venue under our NEC Venue Protect measures.”

A Need For Face-to-Face Interactions And Genuine Networking Opportunities

Whilst the impact of COVID-19 has been strongly felt across the entire railway supply chain, with a loss of revenue and decrease of productivity, the rail sector is still thriving. Significant improvements to the network are still being made and more than £48 billion will be spent over the next five years. Many major new rail projects such as HS2, The Great North Rail Project, the East-West Rail, Crossrail 2, and the TFL Four Lines Modernisation amounting to billions of pounds are underway or planned. These ongoing projects highlight the growing need for a rail marketplace as short and long-term plans are now emerging across the whole country.
