JOIN THE GLOBAL PLATFORM SHOWCASING THE FULL TRANSPORTATION, CONSTRUCTION, AND INFRASTRUCTURE VALUE CHAIN.

Developing a resilient railway system that can withstand challenging conditions, optimize infrastructure capacity, and seamlessly integrate with other transport modes demands collaboration. This collaboration entails designers, constructors, network operators, regulators, and technology providers working together to scale up the latest infrastructure, construction, and digital technologies.

The Infrastructure Engineering Zone, Construction Hub, and Innovation Podium will bring together leaders from infrastructure, construction, OEMs, and technology, along with network operators and transport authorities, to showcase advanced technologies. These technologies aim to accelerate the transition to intelligent infrastructure, reduce operational costs, secure financing, and build sustainable, climate-resilient networks.

The McKinsey Global Institute suggests that an additional annual investment of USD 300 billion is necessary for railway infrastructure worldwide to match economic growth. This figure is expected to increase significantly when considering sustainability factors.
