Mack Brooks takes EuroRail online

EuroRail Hub, an online exhibition for the railway community, took place from 24-25 March.

More than 1,300 visitors from 56 countries attended the event, watching webinar content, viewing product demonstrations and meeting exhibitors.

Webinars discussed the future of the railway industry, bringing together representatives from the Railway Industry Association (RIA), the French Railway Industry Federation (FIF) and more.

UK rail minister Chris Heaton-Harris was a speaker at the event, as well as Marc Papinutti, general director of infrastructure, transport and sea at the French Ministry.

The event is part of Mack Brooks’ transport portfolio. Olaf Freier, portfolio director, commented: “Following the Covid-19 pandemic, the last year has been anything but normal. Whilst we have been unable to hold events in the way we used to, our focus has remained to provide the rail community with a much-needed place to conduct business and stay connected.

“In these unprecedented times, the main driver in our decision to launch EuroRail Hub was to adapt to new challenges and ever-changing circumstances; keeping the industry connected was at the heart of each decision, and we would like to thank all participants for joining us in this adventure.”
