Following the success of our last high speed rail summit in 2017, Strategic Communications is pleased to announce the scheduling of our HSR Asia 2018 for October 2018 in India. Join us in India for the latest updates on high speed rail development and projects across the Asia Pacific region with a timely focus on India’s fast developing high speed rail programme. Network with key policy makers, government, business leaders and industry experts to develop partnerships, identify opportunities and assess challenges in the high speed rail sector to gain competitive advantage. India’s visible commitment to the private sector in every initiative gives confidence to the industry players to invest, produce and grow in India. Vision of the Government of India to go electric by 2030 with railways and transportation playing a pivotal role will open up the rail market to new opportunities and investment. Developing a world-class, environmentally sustainable, energy efficient and safe rail transport system that maximise capacity should be on the agenda for all Asia Pacific governments looking to take advantage of the innovative and futuristic technologies disrupting the rail sector.

HSR Asia 2018 will track the rapid development of growth and network expansion of high-speed rail systems and will offer insights and analysis of the Asia Pacific rail market, covering the current situation, expected new developments, key trends, issues and opportunities. The 2-day international summit plus learning workshops will focus on high speed rail development and rail construction featuring innovative technology, communications & signaling, effective operations, financing models and options, cyber security, enhanced and increased capacity, fare collection and network integration - all whilst delivering an integrated transport system that is sustainable, within costs and on time.

In the current global economic downturn, the rail industry continues to offer long term growth potential for key players and where better than New Delhi to hold HSR Asia 2018 The region is one the world’s most exciting market for rail investment and development as it continues to expand rapidly with almost every major city in Asia Pacific boasting of expanding rail network, high speed rail development, new lines and high speed airport rail links. New and improved rail systems are being established in Asia Pacific to meet burgeoning demand whilst existing rail systems are being upgraded to meet increased passenger growth. Threats of security and safety are very much of prime importance as rail operators develop their networks and improve their technology.

The speaker panel we are putting together will represent the best minds from the rail, finance, legal and innovative technology providers both from the region and internationally. Given the current trend in Asia’s growth trajectory, this summit will draw both international and Asia Pacific participants.

30% of worldwide rail investment is now concentrated in Asia Pacific and where better than India to host HSR Asia 2018 in October 2018. The key drivers pushing investment in railways are economic growth, urbanization and population growth.

Globally the high-speed rail projects are progressing rapidly, 2018 promises to bring more investment, opportunities and challenges into the high-speed rail market.
