Written by  William C. Vantuono, Editor-in-Chief
The Railway Supply Institute (RSI) and Coordinated Mechanical Associations (CMA) will hold RSI/CMA 2014 on September 21-23 in Montreal, Quebec at the Palais des congrés de Montréal (Montreal Convention Center).
RSI and the CMA will be joined by the Railway Association of Canada and the Canadian Association of Railway Suppliers. RSI’s exhibits will be held in conjunction with the CMA 2014 technical and educational sessions. Combined expected attendance is 1,500.

The Coordinated Mechanical Associations include the Air Brake Association (ABA), the International Association of Railroad Operating Officers (IAROO), the League of Railway Industry Women (LRIW), the Locomotive Maintenance Officers Association (LMOA), and the Mechanical Association Railcar Technical Services (MARTS).

Suppliers to the rail industry looking to market their business and products are encouraged to exhibit at RSI/CMA 2014, which will feature space for 140 booths measuring 100 square feet (10 feet by 10 feet). Exhibit space sales will begin in March 2014.

“As a North American trade association representing the railway supply industry, we are delighted to be holding our 2014 exhibition in Canada, which is both home to and an important market for many of our members,” said RSI President Tom Simpson. “RSI will work with the Railway Association of Canada and the Canadian Association of Railway Suppliers to make this show a success.”
