Our Story


The East African railway market is booming.

The recent spike in investment for railway projects has had a massive impact on the region’s economic growth prospects.

East Africa Rail was recently born out of Africa’s longest running and most successful railways event, Africa Rail. It has been designed to replicate 21 years of success of stimulating relationships, partnerships and business across the railways sector.

It serves a very important need for East Africa’s railway community to meet, learn and do business.

For over 2 decades, Terrapinn’s railway events have become the undisputed drivers of growth. Billions of dollars of business have either been initiated, concluded or influenced at our events. And it continues to provide the meeting place for buyers, sellers and their partners to do the deals that drive Africa’s railway sector.

The organisers, Terrapinn, design, produce and create conference agendas that are truly world class. Our formats are unique. Our keynotes are genuine disruptors, innovators and thought leaders. Our content and topics are relevant, well-researched and at the cusp of global and regional trends.

African railway operators and their partners will continue to attend the high level conference. As many of them will attest, this is where they find solutions to their challenges. Its where they open the doors to fantastic opportunities. Its where they form new and lucrative relationships & partnerships. And its where they source and invest in new railway solutions.

Our partners and solution providers are global leaders and innovators. They use East Africa Rail as their once-a-year opportunity to meet and do business with new and existing customers. It provides them with access into a market that is traditionally difficult to penetrate. And most importantly, the event allows them to meet real buyers.
