    ROLLING STOCK DISPLAY

    Making Milan the new venue for EXPO Ferroviaria has enabled organisers Mack Brooks Exhibitions to introduce an exciting new highlight – an outdoor area for the display of rolling stock and on-track equipment. This will be located at the Fiorenza depot of regional train operator TreNord, immediately adjacent to the Rho Fiera exhibition venue.

    Inside the show, a large section of the exhibition hall will be assigned to the Infrastructure Area, underlining the vital importance of this sector of the industry. On Track Displays of equipment will form a central feature of this area, placing exhibitors’ products in an authentic railway setting.

    And to provide insights into trends in rail technology and policy, there will again be a full programme of conferences and seminars, plus technical visits to local railway sites. Details will be added to the show website as plans are finalised.
