     The one-to-one meetings were very interesting. I managed to see people that I would not meet at regular exhibitions or appointments. It was interesting because they were from different countries; from Poland, from Slovakia, from Spain. It’s good, when you want to have a global picture and  global contacts. The meetings were very good for that.

     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 edition of the International Railway Summit in Vienna was certainly a particularly interesting event.
