RVE 2017

14 August, 2017, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

RVE is short for Rail Vehicles and Enhancements.  The only single-theme event aimed at rail vehicle engineering for refurbishment, maintenance and enhancements.  The show is now entering its sixth successive year.  Furthermore, RVE 2017 promises to be bigger, better and broader.  Not only does it benefit from a new, much larger, venue but also expanded exhibition and conference.  Here, visitors can hear from leading figures in the rail industry.

Further information and registration

RVE is the only UK show specifically focused on Rail Vehicles and Enhancements. It encompasses an exhibition, a conference, the Rail Alliance B2B meeting and the DIT Meet the Buyer event… and more. The show draws in international exhibitors, buyers and a broad range of visitors.  These include train owners, train operators, the consultancy industry, heavy maintainers, integrators, designers and the supply chain.  The show has consistently grown for the past 5 years leading to the show doubling in size for 2017.  Furthermore, the show is completely FREE to attend.  You can find out more about the speakers and register on RVE 2017’s dedicated website.

Meet the Buyer opportunities

Furthermore, following last year’s success, the Department for International Trade is once again providing Meet the Buyer sessions for suppliers attending this year’s RVE event.  With six international buyers signed up, this is an excellent opportunity for you to meet directly with buyers from major international companies.

Siemens, Alstom, Hitachi, MTR Tech (Sweden), SBB (Switzerland) and Eurostar will all be in attendance.  Find out more about these buyers’ requirements.

Interested?  Then don’t delay.  Simply submit your company details, indicating which buyers you would like to meet.  You will then receive an email within 48 hours.  This will detail how to complete a short online application form for each of the buyers you have selected to meet.  Based on the information you have provided, the buyers will then decide if they would like to book an appointment with you.  You are therefore advised to spend some time to develop bespoke offers for each buyer.

Please note, the deadline for supplier applications for Meet the Buyers slots is Friday 25 August 2017.
