About RVE 2017
Rail Vehicles and Enhancements is the only single theme event aimed at the engineering of rail vehicles for refurbishment, maintenance and enhancements. The show is now entering its sixth successive and successful year.
The Rail Vehicles and Enhancements expo and conference will be even larger than last year’s event and will be held at the Velodrome in Derby on Thursday 5th October 2017 between 9am and 4.30pm.
Visitors to RVE 2016 benefited from a full day of events organised by Onyxrail, yet RVE 2017 promises to be bigger, better and broader with a new much larger venue and expanded exhibition and conference, where visitors can hear from leading figures in the rail industry. We are particularly pleased to announce that the conference will be chaired by Ian Walmsley, columnist for Modern Railways. Whilst most conferences and events charge for attendance, entry is entirely free, regardless of the quality of exhibitors and speakers.
RVE 2017 will be filled with exhibitors at the cutting edge of technology from around the world, showcasing real time passenger counting, passenger information systems, cab and saloon cooling, traction and passenger information equipment. Other innovations on show will include LED lighting, entertainment and advertising systems, interior and product designers, energy saving solutions and driver advisory equipment.
Given the superb footfall drawn by the event last year we are expecting RVE 2017 to be a vibrant and exciting event.
2017 is proving to be a good time to be in railways as the industry prepares to meet the challenges of re-franchising, PRMTSI, continued passenger growth and the industry-wide desire to boost capacity. The Expo and its exhibitors share a common objective of improving the quality of rail travel. Railways should be a positive travel experience and Rail Vehicles and Enhancements 2017 will help us all to develop this further.
