TRAKO is the largest and most prestigious rail industry meeting in Poland and one of the largest in Central and Eastern Europe. A presentation of the state of the art in transport systems and railway infrastructure in Poland, Europe and round the world. The fair takes place every two years.
This was the third time HICSE has exhibited at this event and we were supported by our strategic partners in Poland, TransLink Master. It was an extremely busy week and it was gratifying to see the level of interest in our products. The growing interest in railway signalling simulators in Poland is focused mainly on rail traffic safety. Although the use of simulators for training is not yet formally required, their functionality can contribute to setting standards. This is a market that is developing rapidly and we are very pleased to be playing an active part in helping to specify solutions. We were also able to showcase new tools to support the design and validation of infrastructure projects which attracted considerable interest from visitors.
One of the most popular attractions on our stand was the ‘Virtual Training Suit’ where we invited visitors to step inside a replica of one of our installations in the UK - the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” certainly rang true as visitors queued to try it out.
Thank you to all who visited us at the fair and we hope to see you again in Berlin for InnoTrans.
