Who attends SmartRail?

Here's what our attendees have to say...

An excellent opportunity to gain a comprehensive overview of what is state of the art in railway business. Definitely worth to dedicate two working days for it.
Dirk Oelschläger, Advisor European Rail Freight Corridors, DB Cargo AG
A great opportunity to share learnings and discuss how the industry can address its current challenges, especially improved operational efficiency and enhanced passenger satisfaction.
Jay Saw, Commercial Director, Nomad Digital

This was my second time attending SmartRail Europe, and first time as a presenter which was a fabulous opportunity.  What I really like about the show is the somewhat less traditional mix of attendees, exhibitors and presenters than some of the other rail infrastructure events – it’s been great to make connections with colleagues in other industries that have something to offer us in rail (and vice versa) which is key to innovating to move our industry forward.  We can’t realise our full potential if we only ever look inwards to our own industry, and this year’s show has given us an opportunity to look outwards further than ever before.

Duncan Cross, Deputy Director of Operations, London Overground
