As the UK’s leading railway infrastructure event, Infrarail is the industry’s favoured meeting place.
Infrarail 2016 took place against a background of high levels of investment in Britain’s main line and urban rail infrastructure. Network Rail has embarked on its £38 billion CP5 spending round, including completion of Thameslink, Northern Hub projects, major electrification schemes and modernisation of signalling.
Work is due to start soon on the £21.4 billion first section of the HS2 high-speed line, while in London, fitting out Crossrail has begun and the Tube’s Northern Line is being extended.
This set the scene for the 11th Infrarail, which was an essential event for companies serving the rail infrastructure market – enabling people from throughout the industry to learn about technology trends, make connections and do real business.

A perfect partnership
For the second time in 2016, Infrarail was co-located with CITE, our Civil Infrastructure and Technology Exhibition. Together, they attracted over 6,600 industry professionals, making them the largest infrastructure event in the UK.
“We're really impressed - we've seen lots of different people that are interested in the products that we do, not just one specific thing. We've had some really good enquiries and I'm confident that we will get some good orders from it.”
Richard Palmer, Sales Manager, Dura Composites
CITE was covering requirements for the development of infrastructure for transport, utilities, communications, energy and flood management that include civil engineering, construction services and products, plant and equipment, geotechnical, consultancy and project management, tunnelling and IT products and services.
Infrarail once again shone the spotlight on the important rail infrastructure, with well over 150 product categories being represented, including track construction and maintenance, signalling and communications, electrification, railway civil engineering, plant and equipment, fare collection and passenger information, electrical products and equipment, IT systems, measurement, monitoring and testing systems, human resources and occupational health and security systems.
Together, the shows form the most important infrastructure event in the UK and offer a unique ‘one-stop shop’ platform for professionals across the whole industry.
