"INNOVATION"

...is at the tip of everyone's tongue in the rail industry now. A word that was disregarded and thrown away 24 months ago is now the hottest thing since the Stephenson Rocket.

Unfortunately, despite being so heavily used, so little is actually being done in the industry, and what little activity there is, is second rate compared to other markets and industries.

We're not here to answer how we've ended up in this situation.

WE'RE HERE TO GET OUT OF IT...

Introducing the HackTrain Conference, the one day event where rail professionals will be able to learn and meet the world’s best innovators from other markets and geographies. You will:

Have the opportunity to find out how Hyperloop has made the impossible possible.

Network with cutting edge startups from around the world who are disrupting markets with their new technologies.

See first hand just how exposed the railway is to cybersecurity threats and what TOCs, owning groups, and asset owners can do to protect themselves.

Learn how AI drastically improve how infrastructure is managed and how it can be used to deliver a truly revolutionary customer service.
