Our 2019 event was a huge success with 130 Exhibitors – 8 Speakers – Four Trade Events and with Major Purchasing Organisations Present.

Footfall exceeded 1200 at RSN 2019.

See the Video of the Event Below

The 2019 event sold out 3 weeks prior to the show.  Many exhibitors will re-book for 2020 and we will be advising available and new stands in a bigger floor plan as soon as the exhibitors have all had opportunity to consider RSN 2020.  4 New Companies are now on the new exhibitor enquires list.  You will see them arrive on the exhibitors page in order of confirmation.

What did our Exhibitors Say about RSN 2019 here is just a snapshot from the feedback received.

“I would like to take this opportunity to say, RSN2019 was a wonderful experience for Mattei Compressors Ltd and a BIG THANK YOU, to you and your team for making this possible !”  Graham S Leach Business Development Director Rail & Transportation Ing. Enea Mattei S.p.A.

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say congratulations on a very successful event!  We heard so many excellent reports from other exhibitors about the quality of visitors attending as well as how impressed people were about the professional delivery of the event and conference.  Well done to you all and we look forward to supporting you again next year!  Eli Rees-King – Marketing Communications Director

“Great show, looking forward to 2020, we all appreciate the hard work in making the 1st one a success” Ravi Taheem Sourcing Director at CAF Rolling Stock UK

We were very impressed with the whole event and the professionalism of the team.  Our stand was busy with a range of different people and we made some good contacts.  We will be putting this in our event diary for the future. Alice Gilman Vivarail.

“Fantastic atmosphere today – well done you two!  Superb organisation, your hard work has paid off”   Maria Smith – Development Manager at Flotec.

“Wanted to say I had a great show, really good for chit-chat and catchup with the industry in a relaxed environment”. Damon Cadman Sales Engineer LPA Channel Electric Ltd

“The whole EnPro team had a blast today, and we would like to place on record our thanks to the team… you broke us in to our first ever trade show!  It was a brilliant day!  I am still buzzing!  I had no idea that trade shows were our thing; but I find myself thoroughly excited and looking forward to the next one! Daniel Cartwright – Commercial Director at EnPro Group Ltd

I just wanted to send you a quick note to say huge congratulations on yesterdays event.  There wasn’t anyone we spoke with who wasn’t incredibly positive about the day and once again thank you so much for your support of Railway Children and that of your teams.  Really pleased to say that we were able to raise £574.05 on the day !!!  Dave Ellis – Railway Children.

Thank you for your help and support during the RSN Event.  We are especially pleased with the work you did for us on Linked In, but to be honest, the whole event was extremely good for us and we are delighted with the responses from visitors to our stand. Sue and all the team were absolutely brilliant and everyone was extremely helpful (not at all like other venues I could mention 😊 ).  Keep up the good work, you have some high standards to maintain.  John Skerratt – Holbro Engineering.

Great turnout, some good leads, great to meet up with old friends and make some new ones.  Mike Harmer. Schaltbau.

Phil Lenier and Lee Farms had a brilliant day yesterday at the Rolling Stock Networking event. Thank you to everybody that took an interest in Dyer Engineering Ltd and we look forward to following up on some exciting enquiries.

We thought it was a great event, definitely one of the better ones we’ve attended in this sector and really well put together. Katie Delve, Inward Investment Executive, Marketing Derby.

So Take Your place and Book your Space at RSN 2020 see the Register Exhibitors Page

RSN 2020 will have 20 to 30 more stands and will take place at the same great venue.



We carefully timed RSN 2019 to avoid all signficant holiday periods and major rail events to assure footfall.  There were no statutory or school holidays in the period. The Major International Rail Exhibition Ferroviarre is on 1-3 OCTOBER 2019, this is Preceded by a further Major International Rail Exhibition, TRAKO on 24th to 27th September 2019. 

This means that after Railtex we had a prime window in which to draw footfall. 

Our RSN 2020 Event is on 2nd July 2020.  The absence of the UK Premiere Event Railtex in 2020 avoids any potential clash with the late September date of the worlds Premier Rail Event Innotrans Berlin and a flurry of other events in both September and October.  It is also after the main bank holidays and before the main holiday periods being 3 weeks prior to school holidays.
