Hall 7.3, Room Berlin
Organiser: Deutsche Bahn AG (DB AG)
Cities worldwide are facing various challenges and transport experts believe that an intelligent integration of rail into public and mass transport is the key to success for future mobility. Smart and liveable cities require efficient railways within and between urban centres. So what do railways, cities and policymakers have to do today to set us on this path for tomorrow?
The international convention Rail Leaders’ Summit is a platform for global developments and trends in the railway sector. The summit addresses the exchange on European and global transport policies, strategic railway developments and international exchange of the experts. In 2018, it will be celebrating its 10th anniversary and we will once again welcome policymakers, business leaders from rail and infrastructure companies and high-ranking representatives from the rail industry and transport associations from more than 50 countries around the world.
