Success at the Rail Industry Technology Roadshow
March has been a busy month for CB Frost, with members of our sales team representing us at the Rail Industry Technology Roadshow. The two week long exhibition, supported by Rail Forum and facilitated by Brewco Marketing Group, visited a number of prominent rail industry sites throughout England. As a roadshow, even the exhibition space, a state of the art trailer, was transported around the country from location to location.
In addition to a number of closed events specifically for rail industry site staff, the roadshow also included open events at Pride Park (Derby), Siemens (Goole) and Network Rail (Milton Keynes), where members of the public were invited to learn more about innovations in rail industry technologies.
As a specialist supplier and converter of a range of high performance rubber, sponge and foam materials for the rail industry, CB Frost exhibited throughout the roadshow, displaying our extensive range of materials to a wide range of rail industry equipment manufacturers. As a preferred UK distributor of Armacell’s range of Armaflex Rail SD insulation materials and a converting producer of Rogers’ Corporation’s BISCO cellular silicone materials, we showcased high performance materials for a wide range of rail applications.
Rail Industry Technology Roadshow 2023
Taking place for the first time since 2019, this year’s Rail Industry Technology Roadshow was a great success for us, providing the opportunity to showcase our catalogue of EN45545-2 materials and speak to over 300 people. We also obtained more than 500 contacts over the two weeks of the exhibition and have already received five enquiries and three non-disclosure agreements to receive additional enquiries.
During the open event at Siemens, Goole, Business Development Manager Daniel Brock shared his thoughts on the event with BBC Radio Humberside – which you can listen to here at the 1hr57 mark.
“As an SME, it’s a great way to showcase our manufacturing capabilities to the large OEMs around the country.
“Last week alone when we were on site at one of the locations, we had over 250 visitors on the day and it was absolutely manic, but brilliant because we are getting to speak to the key decision makers and the people actually handling our products on a day to day basis.”
Sales Coordinator Charlotte Homer was also very pleased with the opportunities presented by exhibiting at the roadshow.
“I was over the moon with the amount of interest we received when showcasing our products and capabilities at the Rail Technology Road Show.
“It was a great opportunity to meet new people (and put faces to names) and hear the valuable feedback on out products. Overall, it was a fantastic event that I was proud to be a part of!”
