With 130 Exhibitors – 8 Speakers and 4 Trade Events; RSN is the place to be for any rail professional on the 11th of July.

There’s just one day to go before 130 companies take over Derby Arena for Rolling Stock Networking (RSN) 2019 and visitors are still coming forward to sign up to attend for FREE.

Hundreds of businesses are expected to attend the free to attend event on Thursday 11 July, with visitors urged to register in advance of the event to ensure quick access on the day. More than 1,100 people have already signed up to attend.

The exhibition floor features companies of all sizes from as far away as USA, Canada, Spain, Sweden and Italy, all offering a vast array of products and services.

Keven Parker, Lead Sponsor of RSN, said: “Excitement is really building about this year’s event with so many different businesses which we know will be of huge benefits to each other and visitors attending.

“It will be the ideal place to meet with buyers, suppliers, innovators and the providers of important services that keep the day-to-day railway running.

“Innovators, engineering companies and the services sector will be strongly represented, ensuring the show offers both the dependable services and the exciting innovators needed to transform the passenger and freight industry.

“With record levels of investment in the rail sector, this will give people the chance to network with all sizes of company, and offer them the opportunity to thrive.

“Partnerships will be struck and deals made, so it is an opportunity not to be missed.”

RSN follows on from the huge success of the sister event, Rail Infrastructure Networking, and comes after requests from rolling stock organisations to provide a similar event for their businesses.

Three Trade Associations plus CIRAS will also host their own events during the course of the day at RSN. There will be a series of technical and commercial presentations where visitors can hear about project successes, industry marketing news and innovative products and solutions.

  • The Railway Industry Association will present a series of presentations that look at the challenges in delivering an environmentally-friendly railway, innovation in rail and then move onto looking at commercial matters surrounding Brexit and the influx of new vehicles.
  • Rail Alliance will present the Rail Alliance and BCRRE’s combined capability for identifying, accelerating and connecting innovation. Informative sessions throughout the day will provide knowledge and insight regarding the rail sector’s procurement challenges.
  • Rail Forum Midlands will provide an engaging session on the subject of the Rail Sector Deal. There will also be a workshop related to schools engagement, apprenticeships together with SME collaboration.
  • CIRAS will be presenting information on the ever important and particularly poignant subject of safety on the Railway.

Such has been the success of this year’s event, with exhibitor spaces sold out, that the organisers are already taking advance bookings for next year’s event.
