Last week for RVE Meet The Buyer registrations

Companies wishing to participate in the RVE Meet The Buyer event at Modern Railways RVE have just one week left to register their interest via the Rail Forum Midlands website.

RFM, in partnership with the Department for International Trade, is again co-ordinating RVE Meet The Buyer, which will take place during the Modern Railways RVE show on 5 November at Derby Arena. A new two-stage application process starts with registration on the Rail Forum Midlands website at www.midlandsrail.co.uk/rvemtb, which closes on Friday 4 September.

RVE Meet The Buyer gives suppliers from the rolling stock sector the opportunity to pitch their products and services to industry leading organisations. Companies recently joining the growing list of buyers attending include Alstom France, Gemini Rail Group, Nottingham Trams and Pullman Rail.

This year there are two stages to the application process. After the initial online registration stage, which closes next week, an application form link will be sent which will enable suppliers to target specific buyers. Applications must be submitted by Friday 11 September. Once buyers have selected which suppliers they wish to meet, RFM will arrange a schedule of appointments and circulate this to all participants.

Companies who are not Modern Railways RVE exhibitors or Rail Forum Midlands members will be required to pay a small administration fee to participate. This fee will be collected by RFM, and suppliers will be required to pay this fee prior to progressing to the application stage.

As Modern Railways RVE is one of the first post-Covid business events, a large number of RVE Meet The Buyer applications have already been received, making it important suppliers submit strong and targeted applications. Modern Railways RVE exhibitors and Rail Forum Midlands members will benefit from exclusive best practice guidance in submitting their application.

Free visitor registration to attend Modern Railways RVE is also open via the show website at www.rve-expo.co.uk. A limited number of stand spaces are still available, and companies interested in exhibiting at Modern Railways RVE should contact Daren Davis on daren.davis@keypublishing.com.
