Infrarail 2016 opens its doors

The 11th Infrarail exhibition opens its doors today to companies across the UK rail industry.

The UK’s major rail infrastructure exhibition will run until Thursday at the ExCeL in London, with representatives from more than 200 countries exhibiting their products and services.

There will be keynote addresses from Claire Perry MP, parliamentary under-secretary for transport, Sir Peter Hendy, chair of Network Rail, and David Waboso, London Underground’s capital programmes director and the newly appointed director of Digital Railway at Network Rail, and updates and presentations from HS2, Crossrail and the Rail Supply Group.

Infrarail will share an exhibition space with the Civil Infrastructure and Technology Exhibition.

RTM – as always – will be providing full coverage of all the news from the exhibition, as well as hosting our own Platform series of panel discussions on skills and training, supply chain engagement and infrastructure planning.

The RTM team is also exhibiting at the show at Stand B31. We look forward to seeing you over the next few days.
