Exhibit Sales Open for REMSA/RSI-Hosted USA Pavilion at Brazil’s NT Expo
WASHINGTON, DC, April 23, 2014 – Exhibit sales are now open for the USA Pavilion at the Business on Rails (NT Expo) trade show in São Paulo, Brazil, co-hosted by Railway Engineering-Maintenance Suppliers Association (REMSA) and The Railway Supply Institute (RSI).  NT Expo 2014 will be held November 11-13, 2014 at the Expo Center Norte in São Paulo, Brazil. REMSA and RSI have increased the size of the USA Pavilion for 2014 from 10 to 16 exhibiting companies due to the success of last year’s event.

“Our first USA Pavilion event at the 2013 NT Expo, with 10 companies exhibiting, was a great success,” said REMSA Executive Director David Soule. “We look forward to giving our exhibitors an even better experience this year in Brazil.”

RSI President Tom Simpson said, “Our exhibitors last year said the turnkey nature of exhibiting in the USA Pavilion allowed them to focus on showcasing their products and services for potential customers in this important international market.”

The USA Pavilion exhibitor fee includes a 2.5 by 2.5 meter exhibit space and a common exhibit area with internet, refreshments, seating, meeting space, translators and hostesses.  Additional benefits include support and guidance on translation and shipping materials; transportation advice including airport, hotel, and expo center transfers; and access to the USA Pavilion room block at the Renaissance São Paulo Hotel. The total cost for an exhibiting company is $15,000, the same as in 2013. 

Potential exhibitors may review the USA Pavilion application contract, USA Pavilion rendering and floor plan, and NT Expo floor plan at http://rsiweb.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/ntexpo14-usa-contract.pdf.  Booth placement is determined on a first-come, first-served basis.
