The Railway Industry Association (RIA) is the voice of the UK rail supply community, representing some 300+ companies in the rail supply chain. RIA works to promote the importance of the rail system to UK plc, to help export UK expertise around the globe and to share best practice and innovation across the industry. Its membership is active across the whole of railway supply, covering a diverse range of products and services and including both multi-national companies and SMEs.
Neil Walker, Exports Director at the Railway Industry Association, said: “RIA is delighted to be supporting Mack-Brooks’ EuroRail Hub, from 24 to 25 March, an event which will bring together rail businesses across Europe. For the UK rail industry, 2021 will be a crucial year as we look to develop new trading relationships with countries both in the EU and around the world. So it is great to have this opportunity to meet, network and discuss the key issues of the day facing the international rail community.”
Led by President Giuseppe Gaudiello, the Rail Industry Association (part of Federazione ANIE) provides a forum for the rail and local public transport technology sector. More than 130 companies are members of ASSIFER, employing 15,000 workers who manufacture vehicles, systems, installations, equipment and components for rail services (including urban and suburban transport).
“We are very happy – said Giuseppe Gaudiello President of ASSIFER – to support this important event relevant to three crucial markets in Europe. In the post-pandemic phase, it’s very important to relaunch investments in the railway sector and today we are called to be protagonists of a new important evolution, a smart and more sustainable mobility.”
The FIF (french railway industry federation) today brings together more than 300 member companies and represents all the activities of the railway industry: from rolling stock manufacturers to engineering, including railway equipment manufacturers, track and signalling manufacturers, design and testing. The entire railway industrial chain is present within FIF.
Igor Bilimoff, Délégué Général at the FIF Association, said “FIF is pleased to be supporting Mack-Brooks’ EuroRail Hub, from 24 to 25 March, an event which will bring together rail businesses across Europe. This year will be crucial for the railway sector and this event is the perfect opportunity to highlight what the future holds for the market. The round tables that will be held to tackle major challenges raised by innovation and the ecological transition will contribute to conveying a dynamic image of our industry.
