Rail Day and Expo 2017


We welcome the support of our past and future supporters! General registration for all participating companies is shown below, and there will be special sponsorship opportunities for the breakfast poster session, the afternoon lunch, and Railroad Night XIII.   Click HERE to go directly to our sponsorship registration. 

The Michigan Tech Rail Program is always looking for ways to improve industry participation. Contact us for opportunities or ideas; financial support is always welcome, but projects for our senior design and enterprise programs are also important. Co-ops and internships are another avenue of support.

Rail Night XIII Dinner - $1500

Two companies will be recognized as special sponsors of the evening festivities.  In addition to the basic registration, the Railroad Night program will have your company name and logo prominently displayed, and you will be mentioned in the program introductions.  We will also have your company name and logo in a rotating slide show on screens in the Ballroom during the evening.  Take both opportunities if you want to be the sole sponsor of the event!
