Recently, myself and several other members of the Signify UK&I Public System & Services Team attended Railtex, at Olympia, London.
Railtex, the leading one-stop-shop event for the entire railway industry in the UK. The event, also named Infrarail, reflects the dynamic developments in the sector and the vision of the rail network of the future. The event is the first choice for railway professionals on the lookout for the latest technologies and the ideal platform for exchanging knowledge and views on the latest developments at the heart of the industry- all to attain the business objectives of railway operators.
Firmly established as the place to be for companies active in today’s thriving rail market, Railtex / Infrarail provides suppliers to the railway sector with a unique marketing platform to conduct business. It was a great experience – three days full of insightful conversations!
Rail transport is typically seen as a sustainable and carbon "friendly" form of transport. However, to achieve carbon neutrality and achieve net-zero emissions there is still ground to cover. Over the three days at Railtex there were many conversations with us how connected lighting can help the sector improve its emissions and what was keeping the rail sector from reaching their ambitions and goals.
At the event, we had a stand setup, showcasing our latest innovations like 3D Printing, Interact Software and UV-C disinfection technology and our professional Philips luminaires accompanied with our Interact software management system. All these innovations are solutions that can support the rail sector ‘ride’ towards a sustainable and safer future.
