Railtex & Infrarail 2021 postponed: next edition to take place 7 – 9 September 2021 at the NEC, Birmingham

Mack-Brooks Exhibitions has announced today the postponement of Railtex & Infrarail 2021.

Railtex, 15th International Exhibition of Railway Equipment, Systems & Services, and Infrarail, 13th International Railway Infrastructure Exhibition, have been rescheduled to take place from 7 – 9 September 2021.

The co-located events were scheduled to take place from 11 – 13 May 2021 at the NEC Birmingham.

This announcement follows the postponement of Infrarail earlier this year, which was rescheduled to be co-located with Railtex 2021 following the ongoing COVID-19 crisis globally.

The two exhibitions have been organised in alternating years since the launch of Infrarail 25 years ago; the decision to co-locate Railtex & Infrarail was taken to maximise the potential of both events by gathering the whole industry under one roof at the same time.

“After closely monitoring the situation around COVID-19 and the associated restrictions currently in place, we have been able to secure an alternative slot to hold Railtex & Infrarail in September 2021,” said Nicola Hamann, Managing Director of Mack-Brooks Exhibitions, about the announcement.

“Whilst the decision to postpone the event was not taken lightly, our number one priority is to set up the correct framework and planning security for the UK rail industry. This includes setting up extensive measures to do everything we can to ensure the safety and wellbeing of everyone involved.”

After a very challenging year for the railway industry, Mack-Brooks Exhibitions trusts that the decision to postpone will enable Railtex & Infrarail to deliver the best customer value for everyone attending the show by delivering a high quality exhibition in September.

“Our aim is to provide the railway industry with the marketplace it needs to recover from this crisis quicker and stronger”, said Nicola Hamann about the current developments in the railway industry.

The Railtex & Infrarail Team will communicate closely with customers and partners over the coming weeks and months and thank their exhibitors, partners, suppliers and visitors for their support during this time.
