After two years of restrictions, isolation and digital contacts, the two days of RailLive 2021 (30/11 to 1/12) have been like a breath of fresh air.
The railway sector was finally able to give free rein to the desire we all had to get back in touch with each other, while of course respecting the security measures decreed by the health authorities at all times.
With an attendance of exhibitors and public that can be described as a resounding success in these uncertain times, smiles could be seen behind the masks. And the scrupulous elbow or fist contacts replaced the old handshakes in the reunions with acquaintances and friends at the Amurrio stand.
In the necessary review of the other exhibitors’ stands, we were happily surprised to see that the railway sector has not lost its momentum with the pandemic, but has continued to innovate, in view of the many new products presented.
It has also been a pleasure to resume live attendance at talks and lectures by interesting speakers. In this respect, it is worth highlighting the fluidity with which the physical presence of some speakers has been integrated with the virtual presence of others. And above all, the naturalness with which we have come to accept it.
The organisation, by Terrapin and Mafex, was impeccable in terms of infrastructure, resources, content and exhibitors.
We can only hope that the success of this meeting will be repeated at future events in the railway sector.
We will meet again at RailLive 2022 in Malaga!
