Crude By Rail
June 12 & 13, 2014  |  Key Bridge Marriott  |  Arlington, VA
· Moving CBR Profitably — and Safely ·
Sponsorships & Exhibits
In 2013, crude by rail (CBR) nearly doubled in business. Projections for the continued growth of CBR remain high.
Considering the enormous scale of both volume and distance involved in transporting crude by rail—matched with tank car demand that has surpassed builder capacity and a quagmire of safety and regulatory issues—it's no surprise that CBR is an important topic for railroaders today.
Railway Age's Crude by Rail Conference & Expo will target these vital issues, attracting executives from railroads, carbuilders, and crude oil producers, as well as first responders, consultants and members of government.
Sponsor or exhibit at this event and network face-to-face with industry decision-makers, the executives with purchasing power.
Platinum, Gold, and custom sponsorships are available. A limited number of exhibit spaces are also available.
