Why attend the SmartMetro and CBTC World Congress?

The congress provides the global meeting place for senior metro, tram, and light rail technology experts. As cities face major urbanisation and congestion challenges, digitalisation, automation, and shared mobility are rapidly changing the urban mobility landscape. 

This year the event will have the support of local operator Metro Madrid. Delegates will be able to visit their operations on site visits as well as two days of presentations, workshops, roundtables and networking.

Three focused streams, two key topics...

CBTC World Congress:
