Networking With The Best
On Thursday 30th September 2021 Heather Forster and Maddie Hodge represented Retail Furniture at the Rolling Stock Networking show in Derby.
With over 150 exhibitors and 1583 attendee’s, the event was deemed a great success!
The global pandemic caused many events around the world to be cancelled or postponed restricting the opportunity to network with existing and potential new customers.
Now that these events are up and running again it gives companies the chance to promote corporate branding and new products.
Here we are deep in conversation with the team at Alfatronix Ltd about their AL1-H wireless charger and other rail approved charging devices.

By attending the event Heather, our Project Development Manager, was able to network with relevant rail professionals to determine the best resources for our ongoing rail projects back at HQ.
Heather happily shared – “It was great to see the event so busy again and to have the opportunity to catch up with people who I haven’t seen in such a long time. One of my main aims at the event was to find ways of incorporating customers latest technologies within our product range. I came away from the show excited to continue the development of our rail projects at Retail Furniture”.
Since Heather’s arrival at Retail Furniture we are now members of the RFM – Rail Forum Midlands, a national industry body with strong regional connection within the rail sector.
RFM offer unprecedented access to the “right people” both customers and other SME’s through an extremely well organised and varied networking and events programme.
Heather feels passionately about being a RFM team member “The RFM team collectively have an invaluable insight in to the needs of the Rail Sector for both current and future requirements and are a valuable source of information from supplier engagement activities to access to regional and national funding for R&D work”.
