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.

the Future

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.


Encounters on the sidelines often provide nice surprises. Technical visits, coffee breaks, lunches, drinks receptions, dinners and post-dinner networking are all designed to help forge new partnerships.


Keynote presentations given by industry leaders are accentuated by interactive workshops and specialist-led technical reviews.
