On 6-8 October 2015, Nordic Rail will once again invite the railway industry to Jönköping in Sweden for an opportunity for companies, organisations and industry peers to discuss what the future holds for rail in Scandinavia. In an exclusive interview for European Railway Review, Jörgen Nyström, Business Sector Manager for Elmia Nordic Rail, explains what visitors can expect to gain from the next event.
Nordic Rail has been established since 1995; as the show organiser, what was your aim in creating this event for the rail industry?
The purpose of Nordic Rail was to create a platform for companies, organisations and people in the industry to come together and talk about the current situation and prospects for the railways. Railway related issues are often complex and solving them calls for a concerted joint effort from everyone involved. The aim has always been to highlight the railway, strengthen its competitiveness and prompt a discussion about what the future holds. I think we have achieved this latter in particular, and that’s also why we’re the leading railway fair in the Nordic region.
