BOR 2011 surpasses expectations
With 180 exhibitors, 20% more than last year, and about 7,000 visitors, the 14th edition of the Business on Rails was the best one ever organized by Revista Ferroviaria.
The next tradeshow, scheduled for November 6-8, 2012, which sold one third of the space before the end of the current edition, should be higher. The presence of exhibitors from 14 countries (Germany, England, France, Switzerland, Sweden, Italy, Poland, Austria, Japan, China, United States, Spain, Canada, Mexico and Argentina), shows the interest Brazilian railroad industry is arousing abroad. Also among the visitors, 25% are foreigners, including some authorities such as the Transport minister of China, Xu Zuyuan; the Transport Secretary of the Province of San Luis, Argentina, among others. The presence of 127 new suppliers that have installed industries or business units in the last five years in Brazil is an important driver of growth in the sector.
