RSI, REMSA to co-host USA Pavilion at Brazilian trade show

Written by  William C. Vantuono, Editor-in-Chief
The Railway Supply Institute (RSI) and Railway Engineering-Maintenance Suppliers Association (REMSA) will be co-hosting the USA Pavilion at the Business on Rails trade show, Nov. 5-7, 2013, in São Paulo, Brazil.

“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 that 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 (U.S.) for RSI/REMSA members; $25,000 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 provides 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.

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. For further information on exhibiting at the USA Pavilion or Business on Rails, CLICK HERE FOR THE RSI WEBSITE.
