International Railway Summit is about...
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.
International Railway Summit 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 ‘Driving 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.
