Scandinavia's only fair for railway industries in Jönköping / Sweden took place from October 7 th to 10th, 2013, with 300 exhibitors and almost 4 100 visitors (10% more than in 2011) participating. More than 90 seminars, lectures and discussions took place in the Elmia Convention Center during those three days.
TÜV SÜD Division Rail was represented with its own stand. The main goal was to introduce the new location in Copenhagen with its services, emphasizing the proximity to the Scandinavian market, as well as to establish and maintain contacts with important Scandinavian and potential business partners.
The participating employees of TÜV SÜD Danmark ApS, TÜV SÜD Rail GmbH, SIGNON Switzerland AG and Railcert B.V. agree that the overall concept at Nordic Rail was well received.
TÜV SÜD had a good start into the Scandinavian market and several interesting new business opportunities have opened up. In addition, thanks to a wide range of issues the conference proved to be an interesting source of information with regard to the Nordic railway infrastructure projects and expansion plans. It will be interesting to see how the industry will absorb and process investments of about 100 billion Euros into the Scandinavian infrastructure during the next 15 years.
