Africa’s longest running and most successful railways event now enters its 22nd successful year.
From humble beginnings as a small conference with a handful of exhibition stands, it now takes up 2 massive halls at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, and has grown to become Africa’s most important and best supported railways conference and exhibition. For 2 decades, Africa Rail has become the undisputed leader. It is an unrivalled platform for the continent’s railways industry to come together - to learn, to network and to do business.
Billions of dollars of business have either been initiated, concluded or influenced at this show. 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. And our expo presents the largest gathering of solution providers to the African continent.
For over 21 years, African railway operators and their partners continue to attend the high level conference. As many of them will attest, this is where they find solutions to their challenges. It's where they open the doors to fantastic opportunities.
It's where they form new and lucrative relationships & partnerships. And it's where they source and invest in new railway solutions. Our partners and solution providers are global leaders and innovators.
They use Africa Rail as their once-a-year opportunity to meet and do business with new and existing customers. It provides them with access into African railway markets that are traditionally difficult to penetrate. And most importantly, the show allows them to meet real buyers.
