RailLog Korea 2023


Biennially held since 2003, RailLog Korea is positioning itself as the latest and globally competitive venue for railway technology, interior fittings, infrastructure, and logistics. RailLog Korea is now ranked the world’s fourth-largest railway show, with 17,000 sqm of exhibition space.
The 11th edition of the fair will take place on June 14-17, 2023 at the Busan Exhibition & Convention Centre in Busan, South Korea. RailLog Korea presents great growth potential, thanks to the geographical benefits of Busan, as the very starting point and final destination of the Trans-Asian Railway (TAR) network.
Busan, a hub city where all logistics functions including railroad, port, air, and highways are integrated, is now emerging as the genuine hub for railways and logistics in Northeast Asia.

Review of RailLog Korea 2021
Because of travel restrictions due to COVID-19, only limited numbers of exhibitors from abroad were able to join the show, with all international brands represented by their local Korean sales offices. Nonetheless, RaiLog Korea still attracted 95 exhibitors (2019: 165) and an impressive 21,484 visitors (2019: 20,106).
Although it was not easy to attend RailLog Korea from abroad, interest in the show remained hotter than ever. Mr. Park Heong-joon, Mayor of Busan Metropolitan City, visited the fairground to celebrate the 10th edition. He remarked: “The importance of this 10th edition is significant. Taking place in Busan – the future center of transportation logistics in Northeast Asia and the gateway to the Eurasian continental railway, the fair remains the best place to showcase the technology of Korea’s railway industry. The organizers have made great efforts to comply with the quarantine rules to make it a safe and successful event.”
Representatives of foreign embassies and chambers of commerce from Europe, Africa, and several Asian countries also visited the show to mark the 10th edition, and familiarize themselves with the exhibition venue.

Mr. Dirk-Oliver Lukat, Chairperson of the European Chamber of Commerce in Korea was highly impressed with the show: “Particularly considering the pandemic, RailLog Korea 2021 was a huge success! We have appreciated the networking opportunities as well as the inspiring and innovative exhibition.”
Hyundai Rotem attracted visitors by exhibiting two models of its rolling stock. Notably, the company showcased a tram powered by hydrogen fuel cells, with visitors encouraged to inspect the carriages and watch detailed presentations on developments in hydrogen technologies. The company also demonstrated their high-speed EMU-320 train which is scheduled to be delivered to Korea’s public rail operator Korail.
Mr. Keum Changsun, Director of the Public Relations Department of SR – a railway service provider in Korea, discussed the exposure that RailLog Korea generates for its exhibitors, saying: “RailLog Korea has demonstrated that railway and related technologies in Korea are gradually becoming superior. The show has established itself as a bridge to promote the country’s excellent railway technology to the world.”
Woojin Industrial Systems was another big name to welcome visitors with their latest rolling stock, which is planned to be delivered to the Seoul Metro. The company’s Apollo 1100 electric bus was also exhibited for the first time at RaiLog Korea to reflect the latest eco-friendly trends in mobility.
