As head of the Rail and Infrastructure division for Collingwood, my visit to the Infrarail and CITE event is an opportunity to meet companies who are playing a pivotal role within the rail infrastructure market. With ongoing projects and more major undertakings in the pipeline, investment in the UK rail continues to grow. So it will be interesting to understand what industry developments have taken place since our visit to Railtex last year.

I am looking forward to seeing the innovations, products and services on show, and would welcome an opportunity to meet with those attending on the Tuesday. I’d value any time you can provide and would be happy to share my insights and experiences, having recently returned from Dubai where I partnered clients; helping them secure expertise in line with the scale and technical challenges of their major projects.

Let me also take this opportunity to wish you all, exhibitors and attendees a successful and prosperous exhibition.
