As always, the ASLRRA 2017 CONNECTIONS Expo will offer the top products and services available to our industry, and the Expo Hall will be the location for our Sunday and Monday receptions, as well as breakfast and lunch on Monday. Highlights of this year’s Expo Hall activities include a Silent Auction to benefit ASLRRA’s Education Fund, Short Line Safety Institute training on Sunday afternoon, and Pinewood Derby races Monday evening.
Expo doors will open on Sunday at 1:00pm and close Monday evening at 7:00pm, giving our attendees dedicated time to visit with more than 230 companies displaying their goods and services in our hall. Don't miss your opportunity to visit the only expo in America geared to the short line and regional railroad industry. But it doesn't stop there - Class I, shipper, logistics and transit employees will also benefit by attending this unique convention and participating in this outstanding rail event.
