Located in the heart of Sydney at the Sofitel Wentworth on 1 and 2 March, 2018, next year’s conference will focus on light rail as a driver of change, urban renewal and development under the theme: Light Rail: Transforming Our Cities.

Join us in Sydney this coming March for a comprehensive 2-day programme appropriate for stakeholders of every level across the light rail sector. The conference will feature case studies and updates from projects both active and proposed across Australia – alongside detailed technical discussions, project financing analysis, international insights and expert commentary from government, operators and industry bodies.
