“Eurasia Rail 2017”, the international summit of the worldwide railway sector, is now open!
 
International Rolling Stock, Infrastructure & Logistics Exhibition – Eurasia Rail is open for the 7th time. The opening ceremony was conducted by Republic of Turkey Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communication Vice President Yüksel Coşkunyürek, UIC International Union of Railways General Manager Jean Pierre Loubinoux, UIC Vice President and TCDD Chairman of the Board & General Manager İsa Apaydın, ITE Group Regional Manager Vincent Brain, ITE Turkey Member of the Board Burcu Başer and ITE Turkey Transport & Logistics Group Director Moris Revah.
 
The exhibition, which is taking place at Istanbul Expo Center within an area of 21.000 m2 and hosting more than 200 exhibiting companies, is being attended by 25 different countries. Eurasia Rail, which will be open until Saturday March 4, is being attended on a country basis by Germany, Czech Republic and France. Eurasia Rail, which has the characteristics of being “the only railway exhibition in Eurasia region and one of the three biggest railway exhibitions in the world”, is gathering the region’s sector professionals with focus on new investments, products and technologies. The conference program, which will take place simultaneously with the exhibition, will provide information flow to the sector.
 
International Rolling Stock, Infrastructure and Logistics Exhibition – Eurasia Rail, organized by EUF – E Uluslararası Fuarcılık which is among the group companies of ITE Turkey which organizes leading exhibitions in leading sectors of Turkey, is open for the 7th time. The exhibition, which will be taking place on March 2 – 4 2017 at Istanbul Expo Center within an area of 21.000 m2, will bring up the developments, innovations and investments in the sector with its conference program. The exhibition is being supported by Republic of Turkey Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications, Republic of Turkey State Railways, The Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey – TOBB, KOSGEB and Republic of Turkey Ministry of Economy.
 
Republic of Turkey Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communication Vice President Yüksel Coşkunyürek gave a speech at the opening ceremony: “The factors in the development of a country are the big and efficient changes made in that country’s transportation. We can say that Eurasia Rail, organized since 2011, has great contributions to the sector. To this day, the total investment made to highways, railways, airways and maritime lines is 304 billion TL and the biggest share in this investment belongs to railways with 60 billion TL. These investments contribute to the development of the country; the more these investments are made efficiently, the faster the development will progress. Our goal for 2023 is to extend the current railway network which is 12.500 km to 25.000 km. In this direction, we are aiming to make an investment of 500 billion dollars to the railway sector in 2023. The fact that Eurasia Rail is being attended by 200 national and international organizations show that there are good developments in the sector. We truly believe that the attendance will increase every passing year.”
 
ITE Turkey Member of the Board Burcu Başer: “Thanks to the investments made with foreign partners and investments with 100% national capital, Turkey is no longer a bridge country. While it only used to be an importing country, It is now a central country in the railway sector. Taking notice of the advices made by our prime minister Binali Yıldırım, who honoured the opening ceremony at last year’s exhibition and shared his knowledge and experiences, we designed this project together with the Ministry and T.C.D.D. As of this year, in a joint decision with all of our business partners, we have decided to organize Eurasia Rail once in two years in Izmir. Our sector will be able to exhibit products and services at a much wider area at fuarizmir on April 10 – 12, 2019. I am also thrilled to announce our new project. On March 1 – 2 2018, again at this location, we will be organizing the “Istanbul Railway Technologies Congress and Exhibition” – IRT which will host the latest technologies in railway sector. Unlike Eurasia Rail, this business platform will only host the exhibition of the technological developments and innovations in the sector and it will provide information flow.”
 
Within the conference program which will continue throughout the exhibition, information related to “Public Transport’s Effect on National Economy”, “Institutionalization in Urban Public Transport”, “Automation”, “Safety”, “Energy Saving”, “Renewable Energy”, “Cost Reducing”, “New Production Techniques” and “Railway Safety: Automatic Line Warning Systems” will be provided to the exhibitors and visitors at panels “Urban Rail System Problems”, “New Railway Regulation”, “Developments in Tractive and Hauled Stock”, “Railway Safety”, “Special Subjects on Railways”.
 
ITE Turkey Transport & Logistics Group Director Moris Revah: “Due to their fast, economical, environment-friendly, safe and modern nature, rail systems become more and more important throughout the world. This year, our exhibition is being attended by 25 countries including Germany, Czech Republic and France. Eurasia Rail, which provides a platform for new purchasing, business development, business and partnership opportunities, is providing great contributions to railway sector and national economy.
 
Moris Revah pointed out that the number of successful projects in Turkey keeps on increasing every single day and continued; “Our domestically produced tram cars, which attract attention from sector giants all around the world with their success, have positive reflections on Turkish industry and engineering and this becomes more visible every passing day. Today, railway sector giants from all around the world want to benefit from our local suppliers for their overseas projects as well. This is a tremendous development for the future of Turkish railway sector and our local suppliers. Among the targets of Turkish railway sector, there are plans to reach 25.000 km of total railway length by building 13.000 km of railway; 7.500 km of high-speed and 4.000 km of conventional railways. There are also targets of renewing 4.400 km of railway, completing the renewal of all lines, increasing the railway conveyance rate to 10% for passengers and 15% for freight and completing the liberalization process of the railway sector. Eurasia Rail is aiming to help the sector reach its goals for 2023.”
