"This second annual event has proven very useful as it provides a good networking platform and opportunities to exchange views and experiences which will enrich the rail industry. The topics chosen are appropriate as we are moving towards an era of rail development. This will give the delegates better insight and understanding of the various issues and solutions involved in rail development."

"I think if you really want to network with people who are in the industry especially in rail, this is the place to be. Topics are very well covered - the engineering aspect, the freight aspect and the technical management aspect. I am enjoying myself and I think a lot of our colleagues who came here are very happy especially with the networking."

"Very good event, like how this event is organised. For bombardier, Malaysia is a key market hence it is important for Bombardier to be present at this event. There is an excellent mix of speakers, for example the TOD presentation is very interesting and a key issue of interest in Asia."

Head of Sales Asia Pacific – Rail Control Solutions

Bombardier Transportation


"The topics cover a wide range which is good as it allows the industry players like railway system contractor, project delivery parties like MMC-GAMUDA and government representatives to exchange their views particularly in this region. In recent years, railway has come back as a popular business and development of Asian cities. To sustain the growth of the mega cities, there is still a lot of room for development of railway systems which brings us back to this kind of event that brings together stakeholders and industry players."
