VIEW AGENDA


In addition to the conference programme, International Railway Summit provides a 'matchmaking' service between rail industry leaders ('buyers') and technical experts ('suppliers'), based on buyer delegates' project requirements and the proven expertise of large and small suppliers whom we have carefully handpicked. Based on this matchmaking, buyer delegates attend one-to-one consultation sessions with suitable suppliers during the annual summit. If you are interested in participating in one-to-one meeting, please contact us at jules.omura@irits.org
