Rail Infrastructure Asset Management Summit
Digitalisation Strategies to Deliver a Future Optimum Network

9th & 10th June 2021, Virtual Event


2 Separately-Bookable Days to hear from Top Industry Experts on
How to Increase Track Capacity, Improve Safety & Equipment Life Cycles
While Reducing Costs in Rail Infrastructure Maintenance & Operations


Digitalisation is heralding a new exciting time for the rail industry with new technology developments providing infrastructure owners and undertakers the opportunity to monitor and collect data on the real state of their networks to drive improvements in real time.

Metis Conferences is proud to bring you the Rail Infrastructure Asset Management Summit, with global case studies and strategies on delivering infrastructure digitalisation to increase track capacity, reduce maintenance scheduling, improve safety and reliability rail operations whilst delivering innovation in bandwidth connectivity for train & passengers.

Designed for infrastructure owners, infrastructure undertakers, rail operators, regulatory standards organisations and the extended supply chain including OEMs and equipment vendors, this year’s event will bring technical presentation that will shed light on how owners are delivering end to end digital implementations related to the asset cycle through the use of new technologies like Digital Twin, Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain, to optimise their digital processes and increase transparency and digital safety throughout the supply chain.
