SIFER 2021 review: thrill to meet again and hope for the future
The 12th edition of SIFER, France’s only B2B meeting entirely dedicated to the railway industry, has just ended. A total of 7,600 key players from the sector, of which 4,100 were visitors, gathered at the heart of Europe’s leading rail region to showcase their technologies, engage in conversations and spark up new business opportunities. Smiles and positivity were omnipresent in the aisles throughout the 3 days of the show, illustrating the joy felt by all professionals to “meet again after 18 months without an event of this stature”, as explained Nicola Hamann, Managing Director at Mack-Brooks Exhibitions, during the opening ceremony. The audience was also reminded of SIFER’s role as the “ultimate networking platform for the industry to imagine and bring to life the rail network of tomorrow”.
