International Railway Summit 2016

Event date


In the teeth of recession, the railway sector has remained strong with the help of continued government investments. Worldwide demand for rail equipment and services is now predicted to rise by 20% in the next four years to €170bn a year. By 2017, three quarters of all spending on railway equipment worldwide, €124bn worth of annual contracts, is expected to be open to competitive tendering.

The International Railway Summit responds to this new challenge and facilitates a deeper understanding of the latest technological and strategic opportunities available to the world’s rail community.
