Taking place from 9 – 11 May 2023 at the NEC, in Birmingham, the UK’s number one event for the entire railway industry will bring together the whole rail community. Railtex 2023 offers a unique opportunity to experience state of the art equipment and innovative systems and solutions. The show will include live demonstrations, as well as an extensive seminar programme focusing on hot-button topics for the industry, such as sustainability, digitalisation, maintenance and passenger experience, alongside the well-established On-Track Display area.

The UK’s railway sector has embarked on a transformational journey, in tandem with the UK Government’s aims to create a greener and more sustainable rail industry. Railtex is the ideal platform for the whole railway industry to meet under one roof and to experience products and equipment in action. The exhibition serves as a forum for attendees to discuss all aspects of infrastructure, technological innovations, digitalisation, safety, and sustainability across the entire rail supply chain. Exhibitors and visitors attend Railtex from the UK, across Europe and the wider world. “Railtex is the place to source new products and usher in business opportunities. The show allows you to discover the latest development in all the areas of the railway industry and an excellent cross-section of technologies and solutions to facilitate the safe, efficient, and sustainable operation of rail transport,” comments Martin Clarke, Railtex Event Manager, on behalf of Mack-Brooks Exhibitions.

The one-stop-shop event covers all aspects of railway technology and represents more than 180 categories of products and services including rolling stock technology, track and infrastructure, signalling and communications, passenger information systems, vehicle maintenance, fare collection systems, cable technology and many other rail-related sectors.

“The next edition of Railtex in Birmingham, a city in the heart of the exciting rail developments, will shape up to be another successful show where the rail industry professionals can exchange knowledge and gain more insights about the latest developments within the industry,” says Martin Clarke, Railtex Event Manager, on behalf of Mack-Brooks Exhibitions.

Meet the experts and learn about rail industry trends 

Railtex provides an excellent opportunity to rekindle contacts and will bring prominent industry experts, stakeholders, and decision-makers in attendance, along with the exhibitor presentations and an extensive conference programme. The programme will accentuate not only the opportunities but also the challenges that the industry has been going through, and it creates a chance to expand in-depth discussions about the latest developments in the rail industry.
