RSN 2021: Premier platform for networking returns

Rolling Stock Networking (RSN 2021), which takes place in Derby on 30 September 2021, is a ‘Must Go To’ event, packed with exceptional content for rail professionals.

Sold out with 150 exhibitors, RSN 2021 also features the conference, AEGIS technical seminars and a Meet the Buyer event organised by the Railway Industry Association (RIA).

RSN 2021 is a truly International, full-scale indoor rail show focussed specifically on passenger and freight rolling stock, technical enhancements, depot equipment, ancillary services and the railway supply chain in 2021.


First staged in 2019, RSN is already a major event in the railway calendar and is FREE TO ATTEND.

Visitor registrations are well up on the previous event and the show now boasts more high-profile exhibitors than any other UK indoor event in 2021. Alstom, CAF, Stadler, Vivarail, TfW Pullman Rail, Gemini Rail Group, Brodie Engineering, Chrysalis Rail, Strukton and Loram will all have displays, while Siemens, Hitachi, Unipart and West Midlands Trains are supporting the Meet the Buyer event.

Major International companies, including FISA, Westermo, TVS SCS, Harting, TT Electronics, LPA Group, Mattei, Schaltbau, Infodev, Telemechanique, LEM, LAPP, Leoni, Liebherr and Astute Global, will be at the show alongside leading consultancies Mott MacDonald, Capgemini Engineering, AEGIS, Design & Analysis and Warringtonfire.

Infrastructure and depot/railway services and integration specialist companies Cairn Cross, Depot Rail, Premier Pits, Jewers Doors, Railway Support Services and Millenium Site Services will also be on hand to discuss their latest offerings with visitors.

As well as the 150 good exhibitor reasons to attend RSN 2021, the show will also feature:

The conference – six leading industry professionals will share their knowledge, experiences and innovative working practices during short sessions. With sessions throughout the day and speakers drawn from all sectors of the rail industry, the topics will be varied and will undoubtedly have much to interest all delegates.

David McLoughlin, chief executive officer of the Business Daily Group, said: “We are delighted to be involved with RSN, particularly this year as the rail industry leads the way in building back better as lockdown restrictions are lifted.

“As well as a superb platform to network, there will be some great speakers taking to the stages throughout the day, making it a must-not-miss event.”

The AEGIS technical seminars – essential advice on the railway approvals process and standards applicable to the industry. For companies looking to sell products into the rail industry, perform design work or undertake modifications on rail vehicles or infrastructure and want to understand the rules, regulations and approvals systems to succeed in the rail market, this series of seminars will answers many of the questions they may have.

Gaining information of this depth and quality would normally cost thousands of pounds whilst the cost of failing to understand the railway-specific ‘pathway’ could be even more costly, so attending this FREE TO ATTEND series of seminars could offer businesses a vital advantage.

Railway Industry Association ‘Meet the Buyer’ – the opportunity to meet procurement teams from many major industry concerns is one not to be missed. Gaynor Pates, RIA’s operations director, is looking forward to the event. “We’re excited to be organising the ‘Meet the Buyer’ sessions at RSN 2021, bringing rail companies together, supporting business opportunities and helping rail companies build new supply chains that can go on to support our fantastic railway network,” she said.

“It’s never been more important for the rail industry to come together to attract passengers and freight onto the network and support the government’s aims for an economic recovery, so we hope to see suppliers there in force. Make sure you come along and take part in this essential event!”

With all of this crammed into one venue on one day, and completely free to attend, everyone involved in trains, rolling stock and operations should be sure to make their way to: Rolling Stock Networking 2021 Thursday 30 September 2021, 09:30 – 15:30 Derby Arena, Royal Way, Derby DE24 8JB
