Why exhibit at Infrarail?

Infrarail is the UK’s dedicated showcase for systems, equipment and services for the railway infrastructure market.

Covering the entire supply chain, the show embraces civil engineering, track, signalling & communications and electrification equipment, services and ancillary products – plus the many other specialised solutions and skills essential for the safe and efficient operation of today’s networks.

Taking place at the capital’s showpiece exhibition venue – ExCeL London, this 12th Infrarail will have a firm eye on the future of the UK’s rail network, bringing together leading authorities, thinkers, legislators and engineers at all levels of supply and management to inspire the development of rail infrastructure for now and into the future.

The event boasts strong support from all organisations shaping the UK’s rail industry and will include a huge programme of informative and thought-provoking presentations, seminars and discussion forums. It will provide a unique face to face meeting place for companies to understand new demands, present their latest innovations, make connections and do real business.

Warning: Expo Guide Scam

WARNING with regards to Expo-Guide / / Construct Data Verlag / International Fairs Directory and other similar companies

These companies use a form, which resembles an organiser's free catalogue listing service, inviting exhibitors to sign and return the form for an entry in an on-line directory, which contracts the purchaser into the three-year, non-retractable agreement.

It has now come to our attention that they are now circulating a letter and form which states at the top "Organised by Mack Brooks Exhibitions". This is in no way true - we are NOT and never will be associated with any of these companies.

Under no circumstances should you sign anything indicating you will become part of an "exhibition directory" that will list your company's products and services if the letter is sent to you by EXPO-GUIDE, FAIRGUIDE, CONSTRUCT DATA VERLAG or International Fairs Directory (not exclusively). If you are unsure about any correspondence received regarding Infrarail 2018 please contact our team on +44 (0)1727 814 400.

Information and guidance on dealing with Expo-Guide can also be found on the AEO website.
