New Zealand Rail 2017 will take place at the Pullman Hotel Auckland on the 27th and 28th June 2017. We are excited to begin work on the agenda for 2017 and invite you to get in touch with suggestions or speaker submissions for the program. A call for papers will be release in the coming weeks.
For further information or to discuss your participation contact the Conference Manager, Niamh Horan on email@example.com.
We look forward to building on discussions from New Zealand Rail 2016 which was held at the Crowne Plaza in Auckland and brought together rail executives from New Zealand and Australia to discuss the key challenges and opportunities facing the rail industry in NZ. As the New Zealand industry focuses their attention on building an integrated transport network, we were delighted to offer a forum to knowledge share and discuss how this can be made a reality.
High profile speakers included the CEO’s of many of the industry’s main players including KiwiRail, the Australasian Railway Association, Sydney Trains, Metro Trains Melbourne, NZTA, NZCID, ONRSR and RISSB, to name just a few.
Attendees were invited to tour the KiwiRail Auckland Container Terminal. This guided bus tour was an opportunity to learn more about terminal operations and tour the facilities which include KiwiRail, MetroPort, MetroBox, MetroPack and Toll operations. Many thanks to KiwiRail for their efforts in organising such a thought provoking tour for delegates.
