Driving the costs out of rail


The world‟s leading authorities on rail will gather in Sydney in November when the city hosts AusRAIL PLUS 2013, and for the first time Australia hosts the World Congress on Railways Research (WCRR). The co-located events will become the largest ever gathering on rail in the Southern Hemisphere, with more than 300 speakers and 5,000 anticipated to attend across the two conferences and exhibition.
For the first time the event will be welcoming the general public to visit the normally „trade only‟ exhibition. Entry is free to the show floor at the Sydney Exhibition and Convention Centre on 28 November, where 400 exhibitors from around the world will be showcasing their products and expertise.
„Driving the costs out of Rail‟ is the theme of AusRAIL PLUS, where more than 100 rail industry experts will speak on how to conquer this challenge. AusRAIL is Australasia‟s premier rail conference and exhibition and will include presentations by government leaders, and local and international rail industry executives, engineers, project managers and academics.
“Australia has the sixth largest rail network in the world - moving 1 billion tonnes of freight and undertaking 780 million customer journeys every year. The full potential of our railway network can only be realised when we tackle the challenge of driving the costs out of rail,” said Bryan Nye, CEO of the Australasian Railway Association which is the lead Association hosting the event in conjunction with Informa Australia at the Sydney Exhibition and Convention Centre.
