RVE show

Exhibition, conference and RVE Big Idea all coming to Derby

Excitement is building and registrations soaring as the original dedicated event for the rolling stock sector returns to Derby Arena this year on Thursday 4 November, with free registrations for individuals and companies open now at

Organised by Modern Railways, the show combines the exhibition with a top-level rail conference and the popular supplier engagement event organised by Rail Forum Midlands, which this year takes place in a brand new format as RVE BigIdea.

Delegates attending the show will also benefit from the welcome opportunity to network in person with their peers from across the industry, something which has been much missed by so many during the Covid pandemic.

At the heart of the show is the exhibition, at which companies of all sizes will showcase their rolling stock products and services. Attendees at Modern Railways RVE can expect to see a whole host of products on display, from seats and passenger information systems to windscreen wipers, electrical components and lighting. Also present will be providers of key services to the rolling stock sector, including design agencies and consultancies.

Taking centre stage is the conference, where for the first time, Modern Railways’ Fourth Friday Club will host its annual Rail in the Midlands event at the show. Unusually for a Fourth Friday Club event, attendance at the conference will be free and open to all visitors to sample this industry-leading conference. Fourth Friday Club members will enjoy an exclusive lunch and networking opportunities in addition to the conference.
