When colleagues happen to talk about the World Travel Catering & Onboard Services EXPO (WTCE) fair in Hamburg, they almost always associate the event with airline services. However, many other transport-related industries are also highly interested in the fair – such as train operators.
Train operators love to get an eye on what is happening up in the air. Airline passengers’ expectations do not differ that much from the train business. With that in mind, the WTCE fair is the perfect occasion for us, LSG Group, to present our global expertise to our customers and prospects in different industries. We hold expertise in many regards – be it equipment, IT, consumer insights, innovative products and solutions and so on … these are all topics that train operators are very interested in.
Travelling along the Rail Trail
My personal highlight on this year’s show will be the “rail trail”! I really appreciate that the organizers have put a dedicated focus on train services since this gives me and my colleagues an ideal platform to showcase our product and service portfolio. For example, did you know that – in regards to train – we are also offering crew management and lounge services?
The tradeshow gives us the opportunity to reach and address a larger number of existing and potential customers. We can show all of the services we offer along the train travel chain and highlight products such as our newly introduced train trolley, which was launched on coaches operated by French train operator IDTGV, subsidiary of SNCF, last year.
Together with my colleagues and with the support of LSG crew members, active on both SNCF and Deutsche Bahn, we will be very happy to welcome anyone interested in our product portfolio and talk about our latest ideas and concepts.
I am convinced that WTCE 2016 will be a big show and great success for the LSG Group. From a train sales perspective, this show is a good ramp-up for our presence at InnoTrans, the leading transport technology trade fair, which will take place in Berlin (Germany) in September.
