The UK’s Department of International Trade (DIT) supported by the Midlands Engine would like to invite you to attend the RVE 2019 Expo in the UK and spend the day meeting qualified suppliers, selected by you, to discuss potential areas of mutual interest.

Held in Derby, RVE (Rail Vehicles and Enhancements) is the only single theme event aimed at the engineering of rail vehicles for refurbishment, maintenance and enhancements, together with new build market in the UK. RVE 2019 will attract companies and visitors on the cutting edge of technology from around the world, showcasing real time passenger counting, passenger information systems, HVAC, traction and asset management and monitoring technologies. Other innovations will include LED lighting, entertainment and advertising systems, interior and product designers, energy saving solutions, driver advisory equipment and much more.
