Infrarail to be postponed to May 2021

13th International Railway Infrastructure Exhibition to be co-located with Railtex 2021 at NEC in Birmingham

Mack Brooks Exhibitions has today announced the postponement of Infrarail, the UK’s leading showcase of railway infrastructure technology and expertise.

The 13th edition of the event, which was planned to take place at London Olympia from 12 to 14 May 2020, is postponed following the escalation of COVID-19 in Europe. The exhibition will now be co-located and take place alongside Railtex 2021, the UK’s premier exhibition of railway equipment, systems and services, taking place at the NEC in Birmingham from 11 – 13 May 2021.

Speaking about the announcement, Nicola Hamann, Managing Director of Mack Brooks Exhibitions, said: “The health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors and staff is our number one priority. After many weeks closely monitoring the evolving situation around COVID-19 and the notices issued by the World Health Organisation as well as Public Health England, the UK Government, the local authorities in London and in close coordination with all partners involved, we have decided to postpone the exhibition.

“This is not a decision we have taken lightly; our customers, partners and the Infrarail Team worked incredibly hard on this event. While it is disappointing to postpone, it is imperative that we prioritise the health and safety of everyone involved. Our goal remains to provide the best customer value for everyone attending Infrarail by delivering a high-quality exhibition in 2021. We believe the decision to co-locate Infrarail with next year’s Railtex exhibition with the help and support of our partners will allow us to maximize the potential of both events, uniting the whole rail industry.”

Mack Brooks Exhibitions as the organiser of Infrarail, trusts that the decision to postpone the show to next year will enable Infrarail to continue to serve the rail industry as the leading showcase for every aspect of railway infrastructure technology and expertise in the secure and safe conditions needed. The Infrarail Team will communicate closely with customers and partners over the coming weeks and thanks their exhibitors, partners, suppliers and visitors for their support during this challenging time.
