RVE Meet The Buyer has been an important element of Modern Railways RVE, putting top rail industry buyers in front of the suppliers that they need to see. The event is run in partnership with Rail Forum Midlands and the Department for International Trade. In 2020 a series of virtual meetings took place instead of an in-person event, and plans are now in development for the 2021 event on 4 November.
Responding to feedback from participating companies, Rail Forum Midlands is currently working on a refresh of the traditional RVE Meet The Buyer format. This will give the event a new focus to add value for everyone who participates and reflects the changing requirements of the industry.
The refreshed format for RVE Meet The Buyer will be launched in the summer, and an online briefing session will be held for suppliers following the launch. Further details will be provided on this page, by Rail Forum Midlands and on social media in due course – watch this space!
