A message from the EXPO Ferroviaria Portfolio Director

“Expo Ferroviaria is a catalyst. Where conversations start and where new opportunities for growth and recovery begin.

Mack Brooks Exhibitions is the organiser of Expo Ferroviaria and part of Reed Exhibitions who run over 400 global events. Reed Exhibitions has worked tirelessly with our industry peers to create a safe working standard called “Events in the New Normal” for holding events in a COVID-impacted world.

We understand how vital Expo Ferroviaria is to the lives and businesses in the rail industry we serve. We will continue to go above and beyond to ensure we deliver an event that is both safe but also hugely valuable and energising for our participants. After eighteen long months without an event of this stature, we invite you to take advantage of this opportunity to fortify and grow your organisation.”
