Railtex 2017

Visit us at the show on Stand J11 to experience the future of UK rail

From the 9th – 11th May Hitachi Rail Europe will be exhibiting at Railtex 2017 at the NEC in Birmingham. Railtex provides a great way to discover the latest developments from the supply industry, learn about trends in policy and technology – and meet existing business associates whilst building new relationships.

Visitors to this year’s show will be able to:

  • Talk to a wide range of companies supplying or targeting the UK rail market – as well as British firms seeking export business
  • Hear keynote speeches from seven industry leaders across the Department for Transport, Network Rail, HS2 Ltd and the Rail Delivery Group
  • Join more than 30 technical seminars and presentations on industry projects and programmes
  • Explore new career opportunities via the Recruitment Wall

On the 180sqm Hitachi Rail Europe stand you will be able to experience a wide range of our latest innovations and technology covering rolling stock, train maintenance, predictive maintenance, signalling and traffic management systems.

Through the use of virtual reality you will be able to experience the new Class 800 trains bound for the Intercity Express Programme (IEP) before the trains enter service, learn about new Hitachi locations opening across the UK and view the latest innovation in rolling stock – the very high speed AT400 designed for the UK market.

Using Samsung virtual reality we will invite you into our new train maintenance centres and walk you through what high speed commuting could look like in years to come. You will be able to meet with our recruitment teams from across the UK to find out what working at Hitachi is like and what opportunities we have going forward, as our company goes from strength to strength. We will also have an exclusive showcase for the new Class 800/801 train set collaboration with Hornby, which will be launching to the UK market later this year.

Sharing the stand will be Hitachi Information Control Systems Europe who bring a unique and tested approach to a truly digital railway, with systems based on the unrivalled punctuality and reliability of train management systems in Japan. Alongside this, Ansaldo STS will showcase their ERTMS – Level 2 solutions with an interactive simulator - putting you in control of train management for the day.

Visit us at the show on Stand J11 to experience the future of UK rail and find out how Hitachi can work for you.
