“This is an excellent forum for users and suppliers of railway systems to meet and exchange information. I am surprised to see all the participants are making full use of this forum to discuss in a no nonsense and professional manner. It sets the trends and vision of the future railway development which is very important in the modern era when a lot of high speed trains are being built in different parts of the world.”

Annika Granlund

"… customers, partners and competitors, to share experience and explore new technologies for track vacancy detection in order to increase the competence and competitiveness of the railway business. In addition, a good organisation, interesting study visits to ÖBB and the new main railway station and tasty Austrian food, contributed to the success of the event."

Motoko Honma
