With only one month to go until the International Rail Conference and SITCE (Singapore, 9-11 July) – now is the time to register for this leading rail sector event.
This year’s International Rail Conference – combined with SITCE for the first time in Asia – will be held under the theme “People at the heart of digital railways”.
We have an outstanding array of international speakers and a world-class programme prepared for this year’s edition.
UITP is also delighted to announce Stefan Stroh, Chief Digital Officer for Deutsche Bahn in Germany, as our keynote speaker.
Stefan has had a wide-ranging career, leading him to his current position as DB’s Chief Digital Officer. Stefan has been a Partner and Vice President at leading firms such as Booz Allen Hamilton, Booz & Company and Strategy&, part of the PwC network.
Deutsche Bahn now has DB Digital – actively shaping the digital future of mobility and logistics – making Stefan an excellent choice to address this year’s attendees.
The 2018 edition will focus on how digital technologies will transform the rail transport landscape – and the need to bring innovative solutions to a people-centric transportation system in order to improve commuters’ experience.
“I’m delighted that UITP will once again be hosting SITCE with our event partners LTA. This year’s edition is very special as UITP’s International Rail Conference will be combining with SITCE for the very first time in Asia. We have a world-class programme and an array of international speakers who will inform the attendees about the latest rail sector developments. I very much look forward to addressing the audience during my welcome speech and I hope that those with a vested interest in the international rail sector will come to Singapore to join in the debate.” Pere Calvet UITP President
We have panel sessions on Artificial Intelligence, Digitalisation for Productivity and Autonomous Trains, as well as technical visits and an exclusive CEO panel on the closing day.
