Rail Live is a fantastic forum for us with a huge number of exciting opportunities generated each year!
It's great to see Rail Live clearly going from strength to strength and it's already obvious to me that it's taken a step forward in the last year which is tribute to Nigel and all the team who have worked hard to make Rail Live 2019 a success, so well done to all of you.
Rail Live is the premier hands-on rail event of the year – rolling stock, plant, people, techniques – unmissable. Be there!
Rail Live is a truly notable event for all people with a professional rail interest, not only those involved with rail plant and track working. Having RAIL take over the organisation and promotion of the show has made it possible for Rail Live to become a ‘Farnborough for the Railway’, and an event that is now well and truly in the international rail calendar.
This event offers something different, it gave us was the opportunity to be in a railway environment with real plant and real organisations.
We were extremely happy with the strength of visitors at the Rail Live event. We identified this event as the perfect platform to showcase our rail products to the right people who will use the products on the railway networks.
Loved the plot. Loved the space & track. Loved the car parking arrangements on set up & throughout - All easy & very well organised. Loved the enthusiasm of all the organisers. Thank you for the opportunity to meet the VIPs Chris Grayling & Andrew Haines! Our whole team loved the positive vibe of the show.
We are looking forward to next year. This show will just keep getting better & better. I wonder what we will replace the Hook-A-Duck with?.....
Great planning and great team work from you guys for the Rail Live show!
Myself and a colleague attended Rail Live on Wednesday, we spent most of the day there chatting to exhibitors and other contacts we met up with. Congratulations to all involved in making the exhibition a success.
I would encourage you to get around and talk to as many people as you can, because in my visit I genuinely have spoken to people I would never have seen before. That’s one of the joys of this dynamic, and it’s why I’m a real passionate supporter of Rail Live.
