Mack Brooks Exhibitions has announced the Railway Industry Association (RIA) as the main show partner for Railtex and Infrarail 2021 as part of an extensive long-term partnership agreement. Railtex 2021, the UK's premier exhibition of railway equipment, systems and services, is taking place at the NEC in Birmingham from May 11 to 13, 2021. Infrarail 2021, the 13th International Railway Infrastructure Exhibition, will be co-located with Railtex for the first time, creating the UK's largest rail show with a combined audience of 10,000 national and international industry professionals. For the upcoming events, both parties have agreed to bring together their combined experiences, providing extensive knowledge of rail trade shows and of the rail industry, its stakeholders and supply chain. The joint programme will include a new Unlocking Innovation Zone, with presentations on the latest innovations in the sector, as well as a "Meet the Buyer" networking programme, to support companies looking to get new products and services onto the network. Additionally, a Future Focus Conference Zone, providing a strategic overview of where the rail industry currently is and where it is heading, will be introduced.
