REMSA, RSI and RSSI to Host Railway Interchange 2025

Washington, DC, (September 21, 2023) – The Railway Engineering-Maintenance Suppliers Association (REMSA), Railway Supply Institute (RSI) and Railway Systems Suppliers, Inc. (RSSI) announced that they have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for Railway Interchange to continue in 2025. The MOU is intended to facilitate collaboration between the three railway supplier associations and allow them to continue the tradition of hosting the largest railway industry exhibition and conference in North America. 

Railway Interchange is a major international event for the railway industry. Historically, Railway Interchange has attracted nearly 9,000 attendees from over 40 countries and more than 700 exhibitors, all converging on one city for a week of networking, meetings, and education. In attendance are leading rail industry participants, including railroads, suppliers, manufacturers, and service providers. Attendees come together to exchange ideas, showcase products and services, and discuss emerging trends and technologies.

“We are excited that this partnership will keep Railway Interchange going and build on the momentum we’ve established,” stated Urszula Soucie, REMSA President.

“This event is critical to the industry and allows for our member companies to showcase their new products and technologies to the railroads so that they can operate more safely, efficiently, and effectively” added Mike Drudy, RSSI Executive Director.  

“Having one consolidated flagship event for the rail industry continues to make sense both for the railroads and for the supplier community” said RSI President Patty Long.

2025 will mark the seventh time that Railway Interchange has been held. The biennial event was first held in Minneapolis, MN in 2011. The next Railway Interchange will take place early next month from October 1-4, 2023 in Indianapolis, IN. Railway Interchange 2025 is scheduled to take place from May 20-22, 2025 in Indianapolis, IN. 

In 2024, REMSA and RSSI will host an exhibition in Louisville, KY on July 9-10, 2024. RSI will hold their 2024 RSI Expo and Technical Conference in Chicago, IL on October 9-11, 2024.
