An interview with Olivia Griscelli, Mack Brooks Exhibitions
Ahead of Railtex between the 14-16 May 2019 in Birmingham, UK, Exhibition Director, Olivia Griscelli at Mack Brooks Exhibitions, highlights what we can expect from this year’s show and how it continues to build its reputation as a premier networking event by attracting top-level delegates and creating maximum engagement for visitors.
Since Railtex was launched in 1993, to what extent has the railway equipment, systems and services sector changed and has this affected the organisation of Railtex?
In many ways the sector has changed massively, and in others it has not changed at all. The biggest difference now from when we began is the sheer size and scale of the industry. Passenger numbers have more than doubled since privatisation, freight business has grown dramatically, and capacity has been squeezed. The fundamental aspects of our industry and rail network remain the same, but what is ever-changing is the technology and skills required to run it efficiently and effectively.
