The 9th edition of the International Railway Summit, a unique global rail networking event, will take place in Warsaw, Poland on 19-21 February 2020, the organiser IRITS Events has announced. This will mark the first time the meeting is held in Poland.

The International Railway Summit features bespoke one-to-one meetings introducing innovative solutions for individual project requirements. In addition, a full two-day conference programme, presented by senior figures, addresses key concerns affecting the sector.

Poland is currently undertaking the biggest rail modernisation strategy in its history. The ongoing state-funded National Railway Programme aims to upgrade and transform the country's rail infrastructure. The €14 billion programme is already over half complete and comprises 220 planned projects, including the renewal of 9,000 kilometres of track.

Furthermore, Warsaw is on track to become a major transport hub, thanks to Rail Baltica, the imminent transnational infrastructure project which aims to further integrate Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania with Poland and the wider European rail network.

Proudly partnered with the International Union of Railways (UIC) for many years, the International Railway Summit has built a reputation for attracting major established organisations, exciting and disruptive ideas and niche solution providers.

The next edition of the event, the 8th International Railway Summit, will take place in New Delhi on 20-22 November 2019, the first time the event will be held in India.

International Railway Summit is a meeting of senior executives representing the world’s key rail operators, rail infrastructure management companies, national and local governments, rolling stock manufacturers and a wide range of solution providers.

International Railway Summit provides a 'matchmaking' service between rail industry leaders ('buyers') and technical experts, based on buyer delegates' project requirements and the proven expertise of large and small suppliers that we have carefully handpicked. Based on this matchmaking, buyer delegates attend one-to-one consultation sessions with suitable suppliers during the annual summit.

In addition to the one-to-one meetings, delegates also attend a conference programme given by key industry leaders and experts and network over lunches and dinners with their counterparts and industry colleagues from all over the world. International Railway Summit is hosted by IRITS Events. The 8th International Railway Summit will take place on 20-22 November 2019 in New Delhi, the first time the event will be hosted in India.
