RVE (Rail Vehicle Enhancements) – one of the top shows in the rail industry calendar – celebrated its second year under the ownership of Modern Railways magazine with solid growth on 2018.
Focused on the rolling stock sector of the rail industry and associated services – vehicle spares, repairs and refurbishment – the event has been running since 2013 and was added to the Key Publishing portfolio in 2018 as an extension of the Modern Railways brand. It comprises an exhibition, conference and a Meet The Buyer event organised in partnership with Rail Forum Midlands and the Department for International Trade.
The Meet The Buyer event, which puts key industry buyers in face to face meetings with sellers, has grown in three years from a 15-table layout to three times that size and attracted 42 buyers from four countries and 20 companies. More than 300 individual appointments were arranged for the day, 100 up on 2018.
The Key team are already hard at work on planning for the 2020 event with several exhibitors having re-booked within days of this year’s event closing.Back To Insights
