Bringing together the next generation of mobility solutions, Middle East Rail has grown to become the largest and most-anticipated rail, transport and logistics event in the MENASA and Central Asian regions. The show also has the distinction of being the only rail event to be run in partnership with the UAE government.
Middle East Rail is the unrivalled platform for the region’s railways industry, providing an opportunity to explore new technologies, connect with industry leaders and meet game-changers who are shaping the future of transport. With the current value of active rail projects in the MENA region totalling $360 billion, this event has become a pivotal meeting point to chart the industry’s future.
Signalling its growing importance, the 2019 edition is expected to host more than 7,500 attendees, over 300 exhibitors and more than 200 distinguished speakers. The show will also introduce two new segments: Middle East Smart Mobility – an in-depth look at how intelligent solutions are reshaping our cities and Middle East Transport Infrastructure, which addresses the efficient and sustainable development of transport infrastructure.
Last year’s spectacular turnout was a mix of over 7,800 attendees, 544 VIPs, and 1,587 exhibiting companies from 89 countries. Covering a wide spectrum, the sectors ranged from engineering to maintenance, signalling and communications to stations and safety. The previous edition also brought together an impressive array of keynote speakers from leading rail companies and transport ministries, all of whom engaged the audience with both interactive and insightful sessions.
This year is set to be equally informative and anyone in the industry should certainly get on board.
