International Rail Infrastructure and Technology Summit
Drive forward trains of thought
Operators & Governments
International Rail Infrastructure and Technology Summit (IRITS) is a meeting of senior executives representing the world’s key rail operators, rail infrastructure management companies, national and local governments, rolling stock manufacturers and a wide range of solution providers.
IRITS provides a 'matchmaking' service between rail industry leaders ('buyers') and technical experts ('suppliers'), based on buyer delegates' project requirements and the proven expertise of large and small suppliers that we have carefully handpicked. Based on this matchmaking, buyer delegates attend one-to-one consultation sessions with suitable suppliers during the annual summit.
In addition to the one-to-one meetings, delegates also attend a conference programme given by key industry leaders and experts and network over lunches and dinners with their counterparts and industry colleagues from all over the world.
Procurement has now become one of the key commercial differentiators in the rail industry worldwide. Rail operators are making a proactive and strategic approach to selecting their partners.
We believe better alternatives are created through open and meaningful encounters. Being in the right place at the right time gives you a better chance of meeting the right people.
Management of rail business requires not only clear foresight into decades of technological advance but also a strong drive to lead the entire supply chain to a brighter future for rail transport.
IRITS offers personalised and pre-arranged one-to-one meetings with industry partners based on your requirements, allowing you to source your future business partners.
Keynote presentations given by industry leaders are accentuated by interactive workshops and specialist-led technical reviews, under the common theme of ‘Drive forward trains of thought’.
Encounters on the sidelines often provide nice surprises. A site visit, coffee breaks, lunches, drinks receptions, dinners and post-dinner networking are all designed to help forge new partnerships.
