The Spanish Railway Association (MAFEX) has developed an intense schedule of activities for the year 2020, with the aim of continuing with the work of support and international promotion to companies in the sector, as well as boosting its presence in the new transport projects planned in forthcoming years
To achieve this, an activity plan has been designed in which different actions are combined as participations grouped in fairs, business delegations and inverse missions. A complete agenda that especially highlights the third edition of the trade fair named – Rail Live ! Congress – from March 31 to April 2 in Madrid, which is co-organised in tandem with Terrapinn and which places the Spanish railway sector in a sectorial showcase of great relevance and the coordination of the eleventh Spanish grouped participation of the InnoTrans fair, the world’s largest exhibition in the sector will undertake in Berlin in the month of September.
For MAFEX, attendance in both events is also a unique opportunity to analyse the priority factors in which the association works for the global future of the railroad. Amongst these, aspects such as sustainability, R&D, the digital ecosystem, and interoperability come to the fore.
Furthermore, strategic trade delegations to Azerbaijan, Canada, Scotland, the United States, Welsh, Georgia, Israel and Uzbekistan have been scheduled. It will also be present at the main fairs and congresses of the sector such as the Middle East Rail fair in Dubai, the Exporail Congress in Cancun that in 2020 celebrates its 19th edition and the Urban Transport Seminar in India. To conclude, it is also worthwhile highlighting the carrying out of a reverse mission on public transport and two seminars.
