At Expo ferroviaria 2019, with the top sector’s companies
GCF is attending the ninth edition of the sector’s top exhibition
Two years after opening in Milan, EXPO Ferroviaria returns to Rho Fiera Milano from October 1st to 3rd, the only Italian expo in terms of technology, products and railway systems.
GCF - Generale Costruzioni Ferroviarie will attend the exhibition with the top companies of the national and international railway industry.
The event, at the ninth edition, is a meeting place for leaders and professionals of the railway sector: public and private transport companies and operators, manufacturers and suppliers of transport technologies, building firms, sector’s professionals and consultants, public administrators, government authorities, ministries, associations, business and research institutions, media operators.
At their stand (B70 in Pavilion 1) that, for the occasion, will consist of a second floor for private meetings, GCF and GEFER- the railway firms of Rossi Group- will propose their technical, organizational and executive skills accrued in the installation, electrification and signalling sectors in over 70 years of experience on the national territory and, in the last ten years, in the main European railway and metropolitan construction sites.
As usual, EXPO Ferroviaria will feature an intense program of conferences, seminars, technical visits and exhibitors’ presentations in three days, which will intensify the visitors’ experience with debates and important opinions on technological trends.
The eight edition of the expo in 2017, attracted 305 exhibitors coming from 19 counties and 7,900 visitors, among which many managers, buyers and engineers coming from 60 countries. The strong international presence- also confirmed for this year’s edition- underscores the entity and importance of the Italian railway market and potential significant sales abroad.
With its 19,200 km, the Italian railway system – third railway network in Europe- is the best business card of the “made in Italy” and its operators on international markets.
Indeed, Italy has been a European pioneer in the high-speed railway network, opening its first high-speed line in 1977. The Country boasts 999 km of high-speed lines up to 300 km/h and 116 km of new lines being built. Lastly, the investment plan that Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane (FS) – Italian company that includes RFI, company in charge of the overall management of the national railway network- has foreseen for decade 2017-2026, is conspicuous: 62 billion Euros in railway infrastructures, 14 billion Euros in new and restored rolling stock and 5 billion Euros in new technologies.
A plan that will contribute to the innovation of the Italian railway sector- today considered among the best in the world- and to the image of its top players.
