Asia’s rail industry is poised for serious growth. With over 6,500km of rail projects currently planned or announced in Asia, billions are being invested into the region. But there are still challenges to overcome — we need infrastructure upgrades, we need to improve cost management of these mega projects, and of course, we need to deliver on passengers’ increasing expectations as we move into the age of the smart digital railway.
Returning for the 18th year in Hong Kong this March 2016, Asia Pacific Rail will bring rail leaders from across the globe together under one roof to tackle these challenges head on. In 2016, the event will be bigger and better than ever before, with more content, more speakers, more networking, a larger exhibition and over 1,000 attendees.
The two day conference will feature exciting innovations in metro, high-speed rail, mainline passenger and freight, all focused on the theme of enhancing operational excellence and passenger experience to improve your bottom line.
Sharing their insights are senior leaders from MTR, London Underground, Auckland Transport, China Railways, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation, Hyperloop Technologies, Myanmar Railways, Heathrow Express, SMRT Corporation, Seoul Line 9 Operation Co. Ltd, State Railway of Thailand, Sydney Trains, Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation and many more.
Some key highlights include: Chong Kheng Chua, Deputy Chief Executive, Infrastructure & Development, Land Transport Authority, Singapore; Dirk Ahlborn, CEO, Hyperloop Transportation Technologies Inc; and DrJacob Kam, Operations Director, MTR Corporation to name a few.
Alongside the senior level conference, the exhibition will feature over 35 exhibitors, 20 technical seminar presentations and up to 1,000 attendees walking the floor. Product demonstrations, networking and seminar presentations will be providing visitors with a one-stop shop to gaining insights and updates on the industry.
Tickets are still available for the senior level conference and for the free–to–attend exhibition.
