Doing it Smarter—People, Power, Performance

ausrail 2015-boss magazineAusRAIL PLUS is the industry’s largest conference of its kind and the premier event for the Australasian rail sector.

This year it returns to Melbourne, taking over the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre for three big days of robust discussion and debate on the key challenges and opportunities that are facing the industry now and down the track.

Thousands of rail professionals and rail fraternity operators— including operators, contractors, suppliers, and government—will gather to hear from 120 senior level speakers and interact with 450 exhibitors.

The premise behind this year’s theme—Doing it smarter; People, Power, Performance— is that a comprehensive plan for growth and employment in the Australasian rail industry is achievable if we do things smarter and productively. This AusRAIL PLUS will provide a platform for all stakeholders to engage, discuss, and contribute to the establishment of a cohesive, long-term infrastructure pipeline.

By harnessing the innovation and integration of our people, systems, and products, the conference will showcase the resources needed to ensure that the Australasian rail industry builds on the momentum of the last decade and continues to prosper.

Leading authorities will speak in keynote addresses to share their insights into how to conquer the challenges facing today’s rail industry and will be supported by a range of diverse panels, populated with expert speakers from industry and government commenting on the important challenges and opportunities facing the varying sectors of the industry.

As ever, the fantastic social program will enable delegates to network, relax, and reconnect with key contacts. Following the Welcome Reception on the 23rd November, the popular Exhibition Networking Drinks will take place on the evening of the 24th. This will be followed by two of the industry’s biggest and most entertaining dinner events of the year—The RTAA Yellow Tie Dinner and the AusRAIL Gala Dinner—both of which are set to excite and delight all in attendance.
