As the UK's new growth capital, the Midlands is currently bursting with opportunity and investment, playing a huge role in the economic prosperity of the UK.
Transcityrail Midlands created a unique opportunity for buyers and suppliers to network, collaborate and trade. The Midlands is at the heart of new UK rail projects including the £55bn HS2 rail network, mainline electrification, station redevelopments and extensions to light railway networks, along with the expansion of rail freight infrastructure. Overall the UK is investing in excess of £100bn in rail projects across the country. Strong economic growth will increase the demand for rail and generate further investment opportunities. The next few years will see the arrival of HS2, the rollout of WMRE’s 30-year strategy and Midlands Rail Hub, along with the 2022 Commonwealth Games which will be catalysts for investment and development of the region.
TransCityRail Midlands was a conference and networking dinner offering a unique, regionally focused platform for networking with rail industry decision makers and generating quality leads, all whilst gaining high-level insight into future plans.
During the conference we had the opportunity to listen to a variety of high-profile speakers, highlighting opportunities for the supply chain. We were also able to showcase our services in the exhibition, speak directly to the decision-makers that we’ve been trying to reach, generate quality leads and build brand awareness by placing our services in the eye-line of potential buyers. Our aim was to engage directly with our target customer and increase our brand's visibility to rail industry buyers.
We continued our networking into the evening at the dinner with keynote speaker Maria Machancoses the director of Midlands Connect, followed by a lively, engaging and informative panel discussion with Transport for the West Midlands, Midlands Connect, Siemens and HS2 whilst entertaining our customers.
