Yes, it is only the middle of October. But we are already planning 2017 and suspect that you are probably too.
We have lots of exciting plans for the SmartRail World community and would like to invite you to become involved as a partner. Since we first launched in 2013 SmartRail World has evolved to match the changes the rail and metro industry is currently undergoing. In a future where 70%+ of people live in cities, and the world’s population climbs to ten billion, pressures on existing networks and infrastructures can only be solved by innovative technology. The innovative technology that SmartRail World showcases.
Through original reporting, data analysis and exclusive insights, we inform and inspire those at the cutting edge of industry innovation across IT and asset management, signalling, telecommunications, passenger focussed services and more. Our news website, digital guides, social media, videos, newsletters, white papers and research engage daily with our 52,000+ member global community. 100% independent, we are where rail and metro comes to learn about the solutions, projects and developments that are shaping and disrupting our rapidly changing industry. So learn more about our plans and how you can be a part of them as we enter 2017.
The growth of digital is disrupting all aspects of our industry from operations, signalling and train control to asset management, maintenance and security. Whilst rail companies and agencies are transforming into more efficient, commercially focussed businesses, often denationalised, cross-border and in competition with other forms of transport. Passengers demands and expectations and quickly changing, and with this brings both challenges and opportunities.
It’s not just the change that is different, it’s the pace of change. The rail industry no longer works with the mind-set of a ‘once in a generation’ upgrade. There is both the capability and expectation to deliver rapid technological developments.
To meet these challenges, new ideas, technologies and skills are needed and SmartRail World focusses on the essential business insight and resources you need to succeed.
Companies that have successfully recently partnered with SmartRail World include Cisco, Atos-Worldline, Alcatel-Lucent, Panasonic, Kontron, Wi-Tronix, Huber + Suhner, Prover Rail amongst many others.

Thanks for all the support, we look forward to working with you.
