Rail Express has signed on as the official media partner for AusRAIL PLUS 2017, and will produce the AusRAIL magazine for the 13th consecutive year.
The AusRAIL conference and exhibition is hosted each year by the Australasian Railway Association.
2017 will represent a biennial ‘PLUS’ year for the event, meaning it will run for an extra day and attract more delegates, exhibitors and guests.
This year’s event will take place in Brisbane, from November 21 to 23, 2017. More information is available on the event’s official website.
“It’s great to continue the association between AusRAIL and Rail Express,” Spiro Anemogiannis, managing director for AusRAIL organiser Informa Australia said.
“AusRAIL PLUS is returning to Brisbane for the first time since 2011 and promises to be bigger and better than ever.”
“AusRAIL is the biggest event on the Australasian rail calendar, and we’re proud to be an integral part of it,” Mohi Media managing director Michael Mohi added.
“As media partner, we act as a bridge between the event and the broader rail industry.”
ARA chief executive Danny Broad welcomed the news, as the Association continues to prepare for the massive event.
“We are currently developing the agenda for AusRAIL PLUS 2017 based on the theme ‘Rail’s Digital Revolution’,” Broad said.
“We are delighted to announce, following the success of the Young Railway Professionals Pitching Competition at AusRAIL 2016 in Adelaide, that we will again be supporting this competition in 2017.”
Meanwhile, the AusRAIL PLUS 2017 Papers Committee is currently reviewing all received abstracts for this year’s technical sessions.
“The Committee has already remarked on the innovation, diversity and high quality abstracts which were submitted by rail professionals ranging from young engineers to esteemed industry leaders and researchers from across the world,” an AusRAIL spokesperson remarket.
Abstract contributors will be advised of the Committee’s review by May 8.
