UIC High-speed Congress


The UIC world congress on High-Speed Rail

The UIC World Congress on High-Speed Rail is renowned worldwide as the most prominent and large-scale global event on high-speed rail. Every two years, the congress addresses strategic issues linked to the national and international development of high-speed rail systems.

UIC former director general Mr Jean-Pierre Loubinoux:

The congress is a unique platform. All over the world, high-speed rail means economic development, competitiveness and growth; less congestion; less dependence on foreign energy resources; and fewer casualties on the roads. The conference participants will see the value and benefits of high-speed rail and practical ways to implement it.

During the Congress high-level speakers and participants meet to consider and discuss all issues linked to high-speed rail development. This includes political and strategic planning, innovative financing solutions, technological innovations, energy and carbon balance, standards and interoperability, safety and security management, research, trends in commercial concepts and services, and partnerships.

The high attendance, around 1,000 high-speed rail professionals, from all continents, has demonstrated among others the influence of high-speed rail experts on decision-makers.

Participants include political decision-makers at a national and local level, representatives of governments, international institutions, key economical/financial/environmental organizations, financial institutions, industry research centers, universities, the global high-speed rail supply industry and the international press.
