NEC hosts 12th Railtex show

Engineering technology covering many disciplines will be on show at the 12th Railtex exhibition, which opens its doors at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, UK, from 12 to 14 May. Highly regarded throughout the rail industry, this is the country’s premier showcase of equipment, products and services for both fixed infrastructure assets and rolling stock. And with more than 430 companies taking part, the show will be the biggest for many years in terms of floor area.


Investment in the UK rail network is running at unprecedented levels and with headline-grabbing projects like HS2 in the pipeline, there are great opportunities in the market in terms of both business and careers. Reflecting this, Railtex 2015 has attracted many of the most familiar names serving the UK rail market. Alstom Transport, Bombardier Transportation, Hitachi Rail Europe and Siemens will all be present, along with numerous specialised firms and more than 80 companies taking part in the event for the first time, bringing fresh thinking to the industry. A regularly updated list of organisations taking part can be accessed at
