Description

The 10th edition of the Business on Rails Show will take place at the Green Pavilion of Expo Center North from October 23rd to the 25th 2007 in São Paulo. The show is organised by Railway Magazine (Revista Ferroviária) and is recognized as the biggest railway event in Latin America.

The last Business on Rails show had more than 6.000 professionals from railroad operators, shippers, logistic service providers, government officers and other parties interested in the railway sector, who visited 146 exhibitors from 17 countries – South Africa, Germany, Argentina, Canada, China, Spain, United States, France, Italy, Japan, India, South Korea, Sweden, Austria, Finland, Mexico and Brazil. Three of these countries - France, South Africa and Spain - went further and took the initiative to organize their companies into pavilions.

One of the biggest booths belonged to the Associação Nacional de Transportadores Ferroviários - ANTF (National Association of Railway Companies) where the freight railway operators showed what they needed to the manufacturers. This is a unique characteristic of Business on Rails: to put together buyers and suppliers. The total area of the show will be 10.000 square meters.

Another specific characteristic of the event was the Amsted Maxion Award for Railway Technology and the ALSTOM Award for Metros and Light Rail Technology that attracted to the Show the best technicians from the Brazilian passangers and freight railways.

The event is an excellent opportunity to:

- Reinforce the corporate trademark;
- Generate new business opportunities;
- Networking with target public;
- Launch new products and services;
- Perform technical presentations;
- Consolidate the strategic position.
