TECHNOLOGY, INNOVATION AND STRATEGY FOR RAIL OPERATORS AND THEIR PARTNERS The World Metro & Light Rail Congress and Expo was created to bring the world’s urban rail community together to share best practice and address industry challenges and future innovations. Fast forward 14 years and the event now boasts a large exhibition floor alongside 2 major conferences and 2 seminar theatres, catering for the whole rail value chain. From the very first year that we launched the World Metro & Light Rail Congress and Expo, it proved to be a hit with metro and light rail operators and their partners. CEOs of metros and tramways wanted a high-level meeting place where they could openly discuss their strategies and challenges, network, and do business. And that’s exactly what we gave them. This year the show will be based in the center of Spain’s industrial heartland, Bilbao, where innovation is transforming the future of the industry. It will create an opportunity for international companies seeking new global opportunities. Building on the initial success of the World Metro & Light Rail Congress and Expo, we are introducing Rail Live! which is a conference and technology exhibition that will provide the emerging digital technology industry with a place to meet and exchange ideas. This allows all types of rail operators and supplier to cover challenges in digital transformation and examine emerging technologies such IoT, Predictive Maintenance, Intelligent Systems and Smart Asset Management.

World Metro & Light Rail Congress and Expo will: • Provide the urban Spanish rail industry with the opportunity to showcase their products and innovation to an international audience. • Provide international suppliers with a great opportunity to meet both the Spanish rail sector and international buyers

The World Metro & Light Rail Congress and Expo focuses on strategic discussions between both rail operators and solution providers about upcoming urban projects and improvement plans. CHECK ALL THE BOXES • Future of Urban Mobility

• Provide a place where rail operators can learn more about the disruptive forces changing their industry and how to take advantage of them

• Provide buyers an opportunity to streamline their supply chain by meeting new partners and benchmarking best practice

• Infrastructure

WHAT A FANTASTIC OPPORTUNITY Dear Colleague, World Metro & Light Rail Congress and Expo is an

exhibition and sponsored conference that will run alongside Rail Live!. It brings together a fantastic rail exhibition with a conference about all the major projects in the rail industry. Spain is the only major European country without a great rail show. Terrapinn, organisers of Africa Rail, MENA Rail, Asia Rail, and Metro Rail Americas have partnered with MAFEX, the Spanish Railway Association. The partnership brings the World Metro & Light Rail Congress and Expo from London to Bilbao, the heart of Spain’s most innovative manufacturing and industrial region, and adds to the show RAIL Live!. It is where Spain meets the world, and where the world comes to meet Spain. With the backing of our host partner Mafex and Euskadi – Basque Country, the support of Gobierno Vasco, Grupo SPRI, ETS, Eusko Trenbideak and Metro Bilbao and the collaboration of Ministerio de Fomento, Adif and Renfe, the event is sure to be an extraordinary experience for all our exhibitors and sponsors. Already in my several visits to the Basque country and Spain this year I have been struck by the extremely positive response from vendors and operators alike to the idea of bringing a truly international event to Bilbao. I have also been thrilled by the excitement from the international operator and vendor community about coming to Bilbao next April to participate. Please take the time to look through our offering, I’m sure you will be as excited about it as our partners MAFEX and I are. Then pick up the phone and call Adam Hayward on +44 20 7092 1166 to book your space. We will sell out. The vibe I get from the industry on this is exactly like when I launched Africa Rail in 1998.
