SIFER 2023 – coming back at full speed 20 February 2023

SIFER, an international tradeshow has been uniting stakeholders in the rail industry for more than twenty years. The 13th International Exhibition of Railway Technology will take place from 28 – 30 March 2023 at Lille Grand Palais in France. After two challenging years affected by the pandemic, the organisers at Mack-Brooks Exhibitions announced the return of the show.

15% of registered exhibitors are new participants that will show their products for the first time at the event. Numerous exhibitors have also renewed their attendance at this next edition, proving the influence of SIFER in the railway market.

Throughout the three days of the show, visitors can enjoy a comprehensive program which aims to foster networking and knowledge exchange while keeping up to date with the latest innovations. Conferences will also be held, addressing the key topics and future trends of the industry, such as sustainability and digitalisation. An on-track display will also be available at the show, where sections of track laid in the exhibition hall will showcase rail mounted vehicles and track-related equipment, allowing visitors to experience all rail products in real time.

New at SIFER 2023 – The Innovation Hub

In line with the recovery plan set up by the government, aiming at renewing and modernising the rail network, SIFER 2023 is looking to the future with the creation of an Innovation Hub at the heart of the show. This space will be dedicated to start-ups with innovative and creative solutions for future challenges.
