SIFER 2023, 13th edition of France’s International Exhibition of Railway Technology, will take place on 28-30 March 2023 in Lille Grand Palais, Lille, France.  

Exhibition Profile

The one-stop event for rail professionals

SIFER is the meeting place for policymakers, rail operators and manufacturers, combining presentations of the latest technological innovations with a stimulating programme of supporting events comprising conferences, workshops, B2B meetings and technical seminars. 

As well as providing a showcase for manufacturers in the major fields of track and infrastructure, signalling and communications, and rolling stock technologies, SIFER provides the entire railway supply chain with a one-stop-shop to source products, from complete railway systems to the smallest specialised components.  

Showcased technologies will cover all aspects of railway technologies, including products and services from the following industry areas: 

Passenger and freight rolling stock – Track and infrastructure – Fare collection technology and products – On-board comfort – Passenger information – Signalling and train control systems and equipment.

More than just a show!

On-Track Display: an established and successful feature


Sections of track laid in the exhibition hall enable suppliers of rail-mounted vehicles and track-related equipment to display their products. There is no better way to experience a supplier’s product than to see how it sits, works and looks on track as it would in the field. 

The on-track display is provided by ETF, a subsidiary of EUROVIA (VINCI Group) and one of the world’s leading players in the rail industry, specialising in the construction and maintenance of national railway networks, urban transport networks and industrial sidings. 

An insightful conference programme


Through its cooperation with Show Partners that include key organisations shaping the rail industry in France, the show offers vital insights into future trends in policy and technology. A diverse programme of associated events will be held, addressing some of the challenges facing railway operators and suppliers at a watershed period for the industry. 

The complete programme can be found on the Conferences page.
