Railway Interchange 2015 will build on the success of the 2013 event in Indianapolis, which attracted more than 7,800 attendees and 657 exhibitors from more than 40 countries around the world. This year AREMA’s Conference Program will include nearly 70 technical presentations over three days and a variety of educational seminars,” said American Railway Engineering and Maintenance-of-Way Association Interim Executive Director and CEO Larry L. Etherton, PE.

RSI President Tom Simpson said, “Much of RSI’s available exhibit space – both indoors and at the outdoor rail yard exhibit area – has already been reserved.”

REMSA Executive Director of Trade Shows David Soule noted, “Booth sales for us are even stronger than they were at this time in 2013.”

“We have been amazed by the early interest in exhibit space; we are looking at a record-early sellout date,” added RSSI Executive Director Secretary/Treasurer Michael A. Drudy.
