Railway Gazette Events bring together rail, metro and transit professionals in a series of bespoke three-day conferences across Europe and North America. The agendas are tailored to maximise insight into key trends affecting the mobility sector, while offering ample networking opportunities for you and your peers.

What attendees say about our events

“I’ve been very impressed with the people I’ve met, a lot of them are trying things – it’s not every day you run into a Chief Innovation Officer at a transit authority, and here, I’ve now met two (and I hope to meet more). I’m enjoying it. It definitely was worth the trip.” - Melinda White, CEO, Transit Wireless (BAI)

“The conference was amazing. I’ve met people that I would not have met otherwise.” - Holly Reed, Managing Director, External Affairs, Texas Central
