Rail+Metro China 2019 (14th Shanghai International Exhibition of Intercity and Urban Mass Transit), produced by the Shanghai Shentong Metro Group and Shanghai Intex Exhibitions, is taking place at the Shanghai New International Expo Center from 12th to 14th November, 2019.

With the strong support of the China National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), the China Association of Metros (CAMET), and under the committed guidance of the China Academy of Transportation Sciences (CATS), the China Investment Promotion Agency (CIPA) and the Shanghai Municipal Transportation Commission, Rail+Metro China has established itself as one of the largest and most respected business-to-business platforms for trade, procurement and promotion in the inter-city and metropolitan rail transit industries in China and the Asia-Pacific.

The 14th China International Rail Transit Exhibition, also known as Rail+Metro China 2019, hosted by Shanghai Shentong Metro Group and Shanghai INTEX Exhibition was held in Hall W1 of the Shanghai New International Expo Center in Pudong from November 12th to 14th 2019.

Over 180 rail industry exhibitors from 15 countries and regions participated in the show, including well-known companies from Germany, France, Singapore, Israel, Russia, the United States, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan, as well as China. The exhibition area covered 15,000 square meters, with exhibits including rolling stock and supporting equipment, communication signal systems and IT technology, vehicle interior systems, overhaul and maintenance equipment, traction power supply and drive devices, planning and design consulting services, and infrastructure supporting facilities.

The CRRC booth was led by Yongji and participated in cooperation with 15 subsidiaries. Bombardier, Shanghai Electric, BYD, Hong Kong SME Economic & Trade Promotion Association and many other organizations, institutions and universities attended the exhibition.

The three-day exhibition attracted nearly 12,000 professional visitors, who attended the exhibition and participated in forum activities. Domestic visitors came from across China, with senior industry professionals visiting from Beijing, Guangzhou, Chongqing, Shenzhen, Wuhan, Chengdu, Tianjin, Xi’an, Harbin, Qingdao, Jinan, Hangzhou, Wuxi, Suzhou, Changzhou, Foshan, Nanning, Wuhu, Dongguan, Xiamen, Sanya, Fuzhou, and Hong Kong, as well as Shanghai. Representatives from subway companies in 26 cities including Nanchang and Dalian, as well as delegates from Singaporean, Malaysian, Japanese, Korean, Russian, American and other overseas subway companies came to visit the show or actively participate in the forum.

Rail+Metro China’s concurrent forum platforms have been widely praised by the industry for many years. In order to expand its international appeal and spread its message further throughout the Asia-Pacific, the organizing committee has rebranded its series of forums into the “China International Railway Conference for Urban & Intercity Transit” (CIRC) from 2018 onwards. Under the guidance of the Ministry of Transport of the People’s Republic of China and the Chinese Academy of Sciences, CIRC 2019 has become a key activity of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation’s Transport Working Group (APEC TPT-WG) Mass Transit Urban Rail Transport Initiative, which aims to promote exchange and cooperation between APEC’s 21 economies in the field of transportation.

This year’s conference continued to be endorsed by APEC, with the theme “Intelligent Urban Rail”. In all six professional industry forums and two closed-door meetings were organized, as well as 5 site visits and inspections over five days. The event form was more innovative and pragmatic than last year, and was unanimously recognized as a resounding success by all strategic partners and stakeholders.

In September  2020, we will move to the Shanghai Lujiazui International Conference Center in putting together a new business space for the industry. Through the deeper integration of our exhibition and conference platforms, we will act to further enhance the professional activity standards of China’s rail transit industry.

From November 12th to 14th 2019, we look forward to welcoming you to what promises to be the most impressive show yet!
