Railway Age’s ninth annual Rail Insights Conference, presented virtually, features a dialogue with the industry’s leadership on key strategic challenges, issues and trends.
Rail Insights 2023 explores what is affecting business growth, capital investment, technology, regulation, service quality and safety in the North American rail market — freight and passenger. This year has been extraordinary for the industry, for several reasons that have converged all at once:
- Railroads are under intense scrutiny around safety and service.
- North America’s first and only transnational railroad, Canadian Pacific Kansas City, is off and running following the historic merger that created it.
- Freight traffic, including the critical intermodal sector, isn’t experiencing a robust recovery, as the economy shows signs of weakness.
- Passenger rail is looking at a financial crisis as federal COVID relief funding is set to expire.
The key executives at the center of all this activity will join Railway Age’s experienced editorial team in candid, open discussions. Then you’ll be able to ask questions of the people who have made themselves available for these fireside chat discussions.
Don’t miss this remarkable opportunity in this remarkable year!
