What is International Railway Summit?

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

Buyers’ project requirements are matched with experts’ solutions, which leads to 30-minute one-to-one consultation meetings during the International Railway Summit.

In addition, delegates also 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.
