RSI, REMSA Announce Details of USA Pavilion at November Trade Show in Brazil

Washington, DC, May 15, 2013 – The Railway Supply Institute (RSI) and Railway Engineering-Maintenance Suppliers Association (REMSA) announced details of the USA Pavilion they will co-host at the Business on Rails trade show, November 5-7, 2013 in São Paulo, Brazil. Nearly half of the available exhibit booths have been reserved at the REMSA/RSI-sponsored USA Pavilion, which will be located in the center of the exhibit hall.

“The exclusive USA Pavilion represents the first U.S.-based railway supply association-sponsored exhibition opportunity at Business on Rails, which attracts more than 7,000 railroad and railway supply industry attendees with exhibitors from more than 14 countries,” said REMSA Executive Director David Soule.

“The South American market holds promise for North American railroad suppliers, and the USA Pavilion will showcase companies who are interested in exhibiting internationally without having to spend resources on making all of the arrangements themselves,” said RSI President Tom Simpson.

The cost to exhibit in the USA Pavilion is $15,000 USD for RSI/REMSA members and $25,000 USD for non-members. The pavilion layout will include a common exhibit area with refreshments, seating, and meeting space along with booth space for each exhibiting company; translators will also be present.

The USA Pavilion co-hosts noted additional benefits to exhibitors, including support and guidance from the U.S.  Department of Commerce and  the opportunity for personalized introductions to potential business partners and customers; briefing papers on South American railroad investment and advice on translation and materials shipping; transportation advice including visa and customs, as well as airport, hotel and convention center transfers; and access to the USA Pavilion room block at the Renaissance São Paulo Hotel.
