10th SIFER Exhibition affords a glimpse into rail industry of the future

10th SIFER Exhibition affords a glimpse into rail industry of the future :Staged every two years since 1999, SIFER—the only international rail industry trade show in France—provides stakeholders from across all sectors of the industry with a unique opportunity to meet face-to-face, exchange ideas and create new partnerships.

The 10th SIFER exhibition, held from 21 to 23 March 2017, more than lived up to expectations, attracting as it did some 4,900 visitors. Once again, the exhibition set the scene for wide-ranging and productive exchanges on the future of the industry, and for the establishment of strategic contacts and relationships.

Among the issues addressed at this year’s edition were: predictive maintenance, the modernisation of rail infrastructures, the formation of closer ties with other industrial sectors, in particular the aerospace sector, and of course competition from China and Japan. Today the new focus within the rail industry is on predictive maintenance and the modernisation of rail infrastructures. A direction taken by companies that promises a host of innovations and thousands of jobs. At the opening ceremony, Xavier Bertrand, President of the Hauts-de-France region, expressed his desire to make Hauts-de-France a “Toulouse of the rail industry”.

This 10th SIFER exhibition was also the perfect occasion for many companies to showcase innovative projects inspired by best practices in the aerospace, aircraft, automobile, and defence industries. Geolocation, conductive materials, and satellite data are opening up new fields of application in the rail industry.

And these are just some of the technologies and areas of know-how that will be driving the modernisation of the industry and the emergence of innovative solutions that will capture the imagination in the international arena.

SIFER is widely regarded as a key event by both French and international industry stakeholders, a fact borne out by the attendance at this year’s event of Dominique Riquet, MEP and Vice-Chair of the European Parliament’s Transport and Tourism Committee, and the 26 percent increase in the number of exhibitors, from 24 different countries. Also of note at this year’s were an Austrian pavilion, Mornsun Guangzou Science & Technology Co Ltd (China), East Japan Railway Company…
