The European Rail Congress Scheduled to arrive in London on 11 November 2014

The 2nd annual European Rail Congress will take place in London on 11 November 2014 and will stage a prestigious awards ceremony and summit.

The European Rail Congress is about bringing the euro rail network together to celebrate its achievements in providing efficient, high quality and safe connectivity across Europe; reducing Europe's emission of greenhouse gases; boosting jobs and economic growth; and facilitating European competitiveness.  It also provides the chance for leading European players to debate and discuss the key challenges and opportunities for the European rail market.

The Awards will celebrate and reward railway excellence across 18 different areas.  They are designed to:

  • publicise and encourage European railway excellence and innovation
  • disseminate the very best practice throughout Europe
  • help new market entrants to learn from the more established players
  • promote inter-operability to achieve seamless rail travel across the whole of Europe

The Summit will provide a dynamic platform for key rail industry figures from right across the European continent to highlight best practice as well as discuss and debate key challenges and opportunities for European rail.
