The Australasian Railway Association (ARA)’s biggest annual conference, exhibition and networking event heads to Canberra next week, and it’s not too late to secure your ticket.

Over 700 delegates are already signed up to for the AusRAIL 2018 Conference & Exhibition, which kicks off next Monday, November 26 with the Welcome Reception, before the conference sessions begin on Tuesday, November 27.

This year’s conference program includes a keynote address from Frances Valentine, founder of Tech Futures Lab, who will present a customer-centric exploration of futureproofing the rail industry.

The conference also includes addresses from transport and infrastructure minister Michael McCormack, and shadow infrastructure, transport cities and regional development minister Anthony Albanese.

A round table on rail’s future will include Metro Trains Melbourne’s rollingstock head of engineering Amy Lezala, AECOM Track & Civil engineer Michelle Doolan, Unipart commercial and compliance manager Jamie Ross-Smith, V/Line regional manager Dallas Martin, and will be facilitated by author and digital strategist Dr Polly McGee, who will also address the conference on creating customer connections in a service economy.

The conference will also see the return of the massively successful Young Rail Professionals Pitching Competition, with judges this year including Transport Canberra director general Emma Thomas, Queensland Rail chief executive Nick Easy, Arup Australasia rail business leader Anna Squire, and John Holland rail business group EGM Steve Butcher.

All delegates will also receive the 2019 Australian Rail Directory and the AusRAIL 2018 edition of Rail Express magazine as part of their delegate packs.

Accompanying the stacked conference program will be five technical streams, and of course the AusRAIL Exhibition, which this year will see more than 90 companies on show. Check out the full list of exhibitors here.
