Connect Rail

Launching in 2023, Connect Rail brings together key industry and government stakeholders, customers, researchers, suppliers and young rail professionals to showcase the exciting developments that are driving new possibilities, opportunities and benefits. It connects technology, knowledge and people all under the one roof for an interactive exchange of ideas and solutions.

Researched and developed in collaboration with industry, the event covers the key topics impacting the sector. These include the impact of evolving technology, how organisations are adapting to sustainability challenges, the changing regulatory and legislative landscape, and how best to prepare for the workplace for the future.

Share your thought-leadership and innovation by partnering with us today.

The Call for Submissions will be launched in February 2023.
