An event, now in its tenth edition, which marks the strategic emphasis of the railway sector
In the year of the recovery, EXPO Ferroviaria, the only B2B trade show dedicated to the railway sector in Italy, returns to Rho Fiera exhibition centre in Milan and celebrates its tenth edition. From 28-30 September, all railway technology sectors will be represented at the event. In this edition, the show will also feature the new "Tunneling area" dedicated to companies specialising in the construction and equipment of tunnels and underground spaces.
At the beginning of July, already over 140 exhibitors have registered for the event, representing 11 countries. Exhibitors include Alstom Ferroviaria SpA, Colas Rail SpA, Stadler Rail Management AG, Knorr Bremse Rail System Italia Srl, ABB SpA, Lucchini RS SpA, Wabtec Corporation, Salcef Group SpA, Vossloh Locomotive GmbH, Vossloh Sistemi Srl and Siemens SpA.
Today more than ever, after the difficult period following the pandemic, the event represents an opportunity for rail professionals to share new trends, launch new products, encourage corporate marketing activities and reconnect with customers, suppliers and business partners.
Taking place in halls 16 and 20, the show will have a section of the exhibition space dedicated to track technologies, which will allow exhibiting companies to showcase products and equipment mounted on rails. In addition, the event will feature an area dedicated to the tunneling segment, developed in collaboration with SIG, the Italian Tunneling Society. This area aims to create enhanced opportunities for exhibitors and a more targeted relevance for visiting professionals from the tunnelling sector.
EXPO Ferroviaria 2021's show partners represent both the supply sectors and leaders from the major rail services in Italy. Amongst them are Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane, ASSIFER – Italian Railway Industry Association, ANIAF - National Association of Railway Track Construction, DR Ferroviaria Italia and SIG - Italian Tunneling Society. Some of the media partners of the show are FerPress, Railway Gazette, BtoB Rail and LeStrade.
EXPO Ferroviaria will include an intense program of conferences, seminars, and exhibitor presentations, which will enhance the visitor experience with essential debates and views on technological trends.
Visitor Registration will be live from the end of July on the website: www.expoferroviaria.com
The event is organised by Mack-Brooks Exhibitions, which also organises Railtex and Infrarail in the UK, taking place early September, and SIFER in France, scheduled for autumn 2021. The rail exhibitions together aim to support the recovery of the European railway market.
