Grasp the Future of Mass Transit at Rail+Metro China 2019

SHANGHAI, May 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The 14th China International Exhibition for Intercity and Urban Mass Transit, also known as Rail+Metro China 2019 and produced by Shanghai Intex Exhibition Co., Ltd., will take place from November 12-14, 2019 at Shanghai New International Expo Center. This year's theme will focus on Driving Smart Rail into an Intelligent Future. Over 200 exhibitors and 20,000 visitors are expected to participate in the show.

Rail+Metro China launched in 2002 in Shanghai, with the support of China's Ministry of Transport, the National Reform & Development Commission and the Shanghai Municipal Government. Seventeen years later, it has become one of the most authoritative and established communications platforms for China's urban and intercity rail industries, enjoying a strong reputation throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

The pace of development in China over the last few years is truly staggering and is on track to continue as the Asian Century progresses. By 2020, China's railway lines under operation will surpass 150,000 kilometers. High-speed railway lines will also exceed 30,000 kilometers by next year, connecting more than 80% of China's cities with populations over 200,000.

Within China's cities, by the end of last year, 5,800 kilometers of urban rail transit lines covering dozens of cities across China had completed construction. In 2018, many cities unveiled new subway lines, with 22 new lines adding hundreds of kilometers of subterranean track laid underneath the country's busiest metropolises. And by the end of 2019, the operating mileage of China's metropolitan rail will reach 7,700 kilometers.

The China International Railway Conference for Urban & Intercity Transit, or CIRC, is an influential multi-platform conference taking place alongside Rail+Metro China with the endorsement of APEC and the firm support of China's Ministry of Transport and the Chinese Academy of Sciences. CIRC 2018 presented a line-up 120 industry leaders, experts and influencers as speakers, with over 1,500 delegates in attendance from around the world.

In November 2019, CIRC 2019 will host a series of forums, seminars and workshops covering everything from railway investment & construction to urban railway operation and maintenance, modern trams to smart rail technology and much more.

This year's show will hit new heights, bringing together the rail industry in an exploratory celebration of insight and possibility.
