Looking back at the World Rail Festival 2018

This year saw the eighth edition of the World Rail Festival. All key players from the rail industry met in Amsterdam (NL) on 12-14th November 2018. Over the course of three days, discussions primarily focused on the latest topics such as digitalisation, commercial growth and the travel ecosystem of the future.

Many exciting speeches and round-table sessions revealed new approaches and ways of thinking. This included the speech given by our CEO, Prof. Beat Stettler, entitled “The new era of mobile communication”. During his speech, he presented new communication solutions for the rail sector of the future to the interested audience.

The many networking platforms made available during the festival were extremely well organised and actively used.  Maintaining personal contacts – one of the main focuses of the event – came into its own thanks to the modern, easy-to-use Meetup app.

We can look back on a very impressive and exciting time, and look forward to being part of the event again next year.
