Session topics

What is International Railway Summit?


  • International Railway Summit is a meeting of the world’s key rail sector buyers and carefully selected technical experts.


  • Delegates attend a conference programme given by key industry leaders and experts, and network with industry colleagues and potential business partners over lunches, dinners and a site visit.


  • In addition, buyers’ project requirements are matched with experts’ solutions, which leads to 30-minute one-to-one consultation meetings during the International Railway Summit. Delegates can add one-to-one meetings to their package.


"Through its well-balanced agenda, the presentations of keynote speakers, which I was happy to be part of, the panel discussions and the bilateral contacts, the latest edition of IRITS in Vienna was certainly a particularly interesting event."


Jean-Pierre Loubinoux, Director General, UIC

“This was a top quality, highly professional event with excellent speakers providing stimulating and valuable insights into the current and future state of the rail industry.”


Howard Rosen, Chairman, Rail Working Group
