Australasian Railway Association, visitors invited to witness future of rail

Visitors are encouraged to wander through incredible displays of innovative technologies on display in the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre until Thursday 24 November for the AusRAIL PLUS Conference.
More than 3000 attendees are expected through the doors of the Exhibition Centre to visit some 300 rail companies on display from around the world.
Bryan Nye, CEO of the Australasian Railway Association said visitors are welcome to enter the exhibition space for free to learn more about the exciting developments in rail. “Rail is experiencing a renaissance and there’s no better place to see the future of the industry than our annual conference, AusRAIL PLUS,” said Mr Nye.
Visitors are encouraged to get a free-of-charge pass from the registration desk outside the Exhibition Hall to visit the displays.
“Each year the displays get bigger and better and this year is no different,” continued Mr Nye. “Anyone with an interest in rail really should come along to see the stands and learn about the latest technologies and innovations in rail.
More than 100 presentations will occur during the three-day conference which will wrap up on Thursday with an Australian and New Zealand CEO Forum.
“The CEO Forum is always a highlight to end the conference. It’s a dynamic session where CEO’s answer questions from the audience about many varied issues the industry is facing,”
concluded Mr Nye.
The conference concludes with a Gala Dinner on Thursday 24 November where the Annual Rail Industry Award Winners will be announced.
