HS2 joins the exhibitors at Rail Live 2023

Registration for the UK’s largest outdoor rail exhibition opened on March 1.

Returning to Long Marston Rail Innovation Centre on June 21-22, Rail Live 2023 is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever.

Thousands of rail professionals will gather in a real railway environment to explore the latest innovations, make valuable connections, and view rolling stock on display.

Rail Live 2022 attracted our highest number of exhibitors and more than 5,500 visitors across the two days. And more than 170 exhibitors have already signed up for Rail Live 2023, with more expected. Of these, 41 are first-timers at Rail Live - including HS2 Ltd.

Displays and demonstrations from British Transport Police and Network Rail Air Operations will again take place, as well as live demos from within the Network Rail Village. BTP has confirmed that it will be bringing the much-loved police dogs, while Rail Live’s Signalling Zone will also return.

Previous exhibits at Rail Live have included more than £0.5 billion worth of rail plant equipment each year, and more than £20 million worth of locomotives and rolling stock.

Visitors can also hear from prominent industry figures on the latest innovations, sustainability, safety, and the future of our railway. Speakers confirmed across the two days include:

  • Lord Peter Hendy, Chairman, Network Rail.
  • Andrew Haines, CEO, Network Rail.
  • Mark Thurston, CEO, HS2.
  • Milda Manomaityte, Innovation Director, Railway Industry Association.
  • Emma Porter, MD, Story Plant.
  • John Larkinson, Chief Executive, Office of Rail and Road.

More details of visiting rolling stock and exhibits will be announced shortly. To register, please visit https://www.raillive.org.uk
